Part of the Anzac Day celebration included a tram tour of the city.
Trams for tourists are often one of the best ways to see a city and even by just sitting in an old tram like this gives a visitor a good feel about the city and the people in fact.
Many cities in the world offer such a hop on hop off kind of bus or tram city tour. Excellent and Efficient!!
Fremantle is a lovely place to be in.....However my best mode of transport is Bus #11 (Foochow Expression) or my own two legs.....
Here families of Anzac heroes are given a free ride....The tour guide in these tour buses or trams must be passionate about local history and geography. Indeed I have been fortunate to meet many who are not only fluent in a few languages but are very sensitive to the needs of the more senior and elderly people. When tourists cannot come up with questions they themselves ask questions and answer them Jokes of course from them entertain us all the way!!
The temperature was only 12 degrees Celcius. So it was really a nice day out!! (25/4/2011)
