Horse Tram No. 1
Sunday 8 April, 11.00-3.30
The Horse Tram makes its 130 year celebration trip on 8 April. This is the event that had to be postponed when the weather on Australia Day was forecast to be too hot for the horses to work. As it turned out the day was very hot until a huge electrical storm arrived with heavy rain. Autumn weather is always great in Ballarat, and the Botanical Gardens are at their best following this year's Begonia Festival. This is your chance to see how tourists 130 years ago enjoyed Ballarat, as the original No. 1 Horse Tram, returns to its original tracks.
