Meet at the Village tram stop outside the Visitors Information Center 

Ride down to the Car Barn on restored Tram 66 (Perth’s last tram) or Fremantle tram 29 for a behind-the-scenes tour of the tram workshop.

Historic trams from Perth, Fremantle and Kalgoorlie will be on display — see what they look like before our restorers get to work! The tour includes: 
• an inspection of the workshop and equipment used to maintain and restore electric trams, 
• current restoration activities,
• a presentation on the tramway history of Western Australia in the 19th and 20th centuries, and 
• historical photographs from the Society’s collection.

The Perth Electric Tramway Society runs the only vintage electric tramway in Western Australia. Books and souvenirs are available for sale.
