  • Hi just enquiring we have a booking tonight sue oneill 5.45 dinner for 4. Just letting you know mum has a fold up walker and want to confirm our booth for our group.thanks

    • Hi Maki,

      It is theoretically possible, but I think the timing might be a little too tight.

      The Tramcar early dinner leaves at 5.45pm and goes for 1.5 hours. This will take you to 7.15pm. After the dinner, you will alight from the tram at Clarendon Street, South Melbourne. Theoretically, you could catch a taxi to the Princess Theatre in time for the 7.30pm start as it is only a couple of kms away, but you would not have any time to spare if the tram is delayed, can’t hail a taxi straight away, traffic delays etc.

      For me it is a little tight, but it is a matter for you. Here is the link to the tram car restaurant if you want to go ahead with the booking. I have done the tramcar booking twice before and it is a great way to enjoy Melbourne!


    • Hi Jasmine,

      Unfortunately only children aged 5 and up are permitted on the tram. The official page states that “A: Yes we do welcome children aboard the Tramcar, and can accommodate children aged 5 years and above. This age restriction has been carefully considered in the interests of health and safety.

      I note that the Tram Car is a quiet intimate setting with small booths that wont fit a highchair. Also, there isn’t any room for kids to run around on the tram as it is a small space.
