The Sydney Tramway Museum is an Australian operating tramway museum, located in Loftus in the southern suburbs of Sydney. The museum has an extensive collection of trams from Sydney and cities in Australia and around the world. There are two tram lines from the museum used to run tram rides for museum visitors.
The first runs 1.5 km north almost to Sutherland railway station, paralleling Rawson Avenue in the way Sydney’s tram system operated, the second utilises a former railway that once branched off Sydney Train’s Eastern Suburbs and Illawarra (T4) railway line that 2 km into the Royal National Park that flanks Sydney’s southern boundary.
The Sydney Tramway Museum is run entirely by volunteers and self funds its day to day activities, restorations and construction programs from gate takings and donations from the public.
The Sydney Vintage Tramway Festival celebrates the heritage of Sydney’s wonderful tramway system, once among the largest tramways in the world.
We will be pulling out all the stops! Some of our oldest & rarest trams, dating back to early 1900’s will be putting their best wheels forward to give you a day to remember! Relive the feeling of ‘Shooting Through’ on an old toastrack tram, or watch the museums street scene come to life as we fill it with trams. Our double deck bus will be making trips throughout the day. Also on display are vintage cars thanks to the Model A Ford Club. A great day out for the whole family.
