Box Hill - Doncaster Tram

The tram you will see on your visit is a replica of the Box Hill - Doncaster Tram
that ran from 1889 to 1896 along the line of Tram Road.
People used to travel by train from Princes Bridge Station to Box Hill and then by tram
to climb the Beaconsfield tower for the magnificent views from the top.
The tower, built by Alfred Hummel, stood from 1879 to 1914 on Doncaster Hill near where Shoppingtown is today.
