Bendigo’s royal tram was vandalised on Monday night, with an estimated $1000 worth of damage to the major attraction.

A number of broken windows and graffiti to the red, white and blue tram in Rosalind Park was repaired by Bendigo Heritage Attractions on Tuesday afternoon.

The chief executive of Bendigo Heritage Attractions Peter Abbott said the area has been cleaned up and is now safe.

“People got inside the tram, but thankfully there is no major damage,” Mr Abbott said.

The City of Greater Bendigo’s Manager of Tourism and Major Events Terry Karamaloudis said the city is cooperating with police on the matter.

“The city recently installed a significant number of new CCTV cameras around the CBD and my understanding is that we have captured the incident,” Mr Karamaloudis said.

Victoria Police said they are investigating the matter and that anybody who has any information should contact Bendigo Police or Crime Stoppers.
