Bendigo Tramways Museum
Australia's Bendigo, Victoria, is home to the Bendigo Tramways Museum, a well-liked tourist destination. The history of the city's tramways and their contribution to Bendigo's growth are celebrated at this museum.
The 1901-built Bendigo Tramways Power Station and Depot, where the museum is located, was formerly a power station and depot. In addition to housing a collection of trams and other memorabilia from Bendigo's tramway heritage, the structure has been restored to its former state.
