  Map: how to get to the Bylands Tramway Heritage Centre  

Bylands Tramway Heritage Centre logoVisitor information

Bylands Tramway Heritage Centre is located in the State of Victoria, at 330 Union Lane, Bylands, just off the Northern Highway, approximately 53 kilometres north of Melbourne (Melway edition 27 map 510 L10).

At the Tramway Heritage Centre, you can:

  • ride a historic electric tramcar over one kilometre of track (formerly part of the Heathcote Junction to Bendigo rail line)
  • view our tramcar collection
  • see the Heritage Victoria-listed Exhibition Goods Shed

Picnic tables and toilet facilities are available. A small range of snacks and souvenir items may be purchased from our kiosk.

Unfortunately the Tramway Heritage Centre is not serviced by public transport, but it only takes about an hour from the Melbourne CBD via motor car. It is located in an idyllic rural setting, with stunning views across a valley to Mount Disappointment and the Kinglake National Park.

The easiest route is to take the Hume Freeway (route M31) north of Melbourne, taking the Wallan exit for the Northern Highway (route B75). Proceed through the township of Wallan, up the hill known as Pretty Sally for about 7km. There is a brown tourism sign for the museum about 300m before the turn right into Union Lane. Proceed down Union Lane for about 300m and you have arrived.

Bylands Tramway Heritage Centre is open to the public on Sundays between 1000 and 1700.
