Melbourne City and Victoria Country Services: WWW.VLINE.COM.AU

Metropolitan Melbourne is serviced by a very up to date train service with a circular route around the city and branching out into the suburbs. It is supported by a unique centuries old system of trams as well as regular bus services.

Melbourne Airport at Tullamarine is serviced by a regular express bus service run by SkyBus direct to the city and Southern Cross Station.

The main Victorian towns of Ballarat, Bendigo and Swan Hill, Geelong, Seymour, Shepparton and Albury as well as the Gippsland towns to Taralgon and Bairnsdale are all supported by regular daily train services especially designed to support daily commuter passengers into the city of Melbourne.

All the popular landmarks and facilities around Melbourne, including St Kilda Pier, can be accessed by the tram network as can almost all suburbs. There are even FREE Trams provided for special occasions like the Australian Open Tennis Championships.

Bendigo Trams

Bendigo not only has a modern fleet of Trams but due to a growing historical interest in the town as one of Victoria's major Gold Mining Centres the city is also now in the last few years re-commisioning some of its historical trams.
