Built to aes­thet­ic per­fec­tion, the Clas­sic Tram is a tru­ly inven­tive vehi­cle that harkens to the past. Rid­ing on nos­tal­gia, this tour immers­es you in the archi­tec­tur­al splen­dor of the famed eth­nic quar­ters of Broome, reveal­ing fas­ci­nat­ing sto­ries of our unique her­itage with a ful­ly guid­ed sight­see­ing expe­ri­ence — the only way to tru­ly enjoy Broome! In 1894 work had begun to con­struct a Tramway to car­ry Moth­er of Pearl Shell from Streeter & Male Jet­ties to the Goods Shed. The boom of the Moth­er of Pearl Indus­try secured the tramway line and it became a cat­a­lyst to the growth of Broome. The Broome Tramway was used by all and became part of the Broome way of life.
