“Yarra Trams are FREE in the CBD (there will be an announcement on the tram when you are about to leave the free tram zone) so getting around has never been easier! Most trams outside the State Library (cnr La Trobe & Swanston St) will get you to most places, if not then there should be someone close by to ask. If you are travelling outside the free tram zone, buy a MYKI card at any 7-11 store. I have included a leaflet on MYKI in the lot of brochures in the magazine rack on the desk downstairs. There is also a dark red free city circle tram that you can catch from La Trobe & Elizabeth St that will take you on a scenic route of the city to have a look around.”
