Hobart City Council Tramway

The Hobart City Council has from time to time promoted the construction of a tourist tramway around the Hobart waterfront or further afield. So far five tram bodies have been obtained by the council, with body restoration and running gear on three trams completed so far.

The exact route and other details are yet to be finalised, approved or funded. One option is to run from Hunter Street around the waterfront to the Salamanca Place area. A number of alternative proposals including through the city to North Hobart, and sharing the railway line to the Botanical Gardens or even further have also been proposed.

The project is generally in abeyance, and it is unlikely that there will be any movement in the short term. The trams remain in storage at a Council facility, and are not accessible to the public.
