Steve Kirkpatrick is gearing up for trial.

For 45 years Bendigo’s trams have delivered a tour via an online recorded commentary, but now the question is being asked whether the tour would be better delivered in person and the Bendigo Tramways are calling on the community to help trial the idea.

The trial involves replacing the recorded commentary with a real life storyteller who can deliver Bendigo’s story in person and be able to answer questions and share other fun facts along the way.

The trial tours will be running at noon every Saturday throughout August and are being offered for half the price of the normal Vintage Talking Tram tour.

If you would like to be involved in the trial and want to book a seat on one of the trial trams, please visit for more information or call 5443 8255 to book your place.
