The City Circle Tram is free if traveling within the city. This is great service especially for us who were staying in a downtown hotel and needed to get around few blocks to do some shopping, dining or sightseeing.

Around town without exaggeration, from the Queen Victoria Markets to Harbour town or Erica's this tram will get you there for nix. It stays in the free tram zone so you won't need Mykii.

Very convenient way of transportation. We could reach most of the tourist attractions by tram. There is also a free tourist tram within the city centre.

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

The free tram is an old traditional tram and may be difficult to climb onboard . The new trams are wheelchair accessible and it is not expensive to travel on them.
