Tramway Museum

Museum in Adelaide

Up until 1957, Adelaide had an extensive network of trams spider-webbing out from the city into the suburbs. Then costs, an ageing fleet and public transport myopia got the better of the politicians and all the lines (except Glenelg) were ripped up. You can check out 30 of Adelaide's old rattlers at this museum in St Kilda, 28km north of the city. Also open Wednesday during school holidays.
