Whiteman Park is the only place in Western Australia where you can ride on a genuine vintage electric tram.
**NOTICE: Trams will not be operating until further notice as they sustained some damage to their infrastructure during the recent storms. We apologise for any inconvenience. (updated 6 Feb 2015)**
The Perth Electric Tramway Society provides a regular service over 4 kilometres of standard gauge track through picnic areas and farmland.
Trams operate between Mussel Pool and the Village at half hourly intervals, with extended weekend running times of 11.00am to 4.00pm Saturdays and 11.00am to 4.30pm on Sundays and public holidays.
Note: Family and senior concessions are also available, just ask your Tram driver. Footwear must be worn at all times on Tram Rides.

**PLEASE NOTE. Tram rides will not operate on higher fire danger days. Please call us on
