Tram ride Village mall Whiteman Park 03
Whiteman Park is the only place in Western Australia where you can ride on a genuine heritage electric tram.

The Perth Electric Tramway Society provides a regular service over four kilometres of standard gauge track through picnic areas and farmland. You get to experience the clickety-clack of travel by tram, just as it was in yesteryear.

Buy your tickets from the tram conductor on board (cash only) and receive your heritage-style tram ticket before alighting through the park. Look for the Park's many kangaroos and even our cattle on your journey.

Trams operate between Mussel Pool and the Village at half hourly intervals, with extended running times on weekends, public and school holidays.

Our top tip? these heritage electric trams travel back and forth on the same line, so be sure to watch as your driver changes the pole at either end of the service!
