The Tram Café is located approximately 500m south of the main entrance into Diamond Creek Reserve, and approximately 250m south of the Diamond Creek Bowls Club and Offleash Dog Park.

What is the history of the tram and who operates the café?

The Diamond Creek Rotary Tram project has involved the refurbishment of an historic W-class tram, one of 130 retired Yarra trams given a new home through the State Government.

Members of the Diamond Creek Rotary Tram Project, volunteers and many sponsors and supporters have spent almost two years restoring the tram to its former glory.

Valley Community Services Limited, Bendigo Bank donated $20,000 towards the deck and roof structure of the tram. This was matched by Council and the cheques were presented to the Diamond Creek Rotary Club at the sod turning event in March 2020.
