Sandridge Railway Trail



Follow the route of Australia’s first steam railway, still evident after 150 years, and discover the early heart of Melbourne. A self guided walking and light rail trail from Flinders Street Station to Sandridge, now known as Port Melbourne.

The Sandridge Railway opened in 1854 to serve what was then Australia’s busiest shipping port. This trail follows the original train route from Flinders Street Station to Port Melbourne. Made up of three sections, this trail involves a walk, a tram ride, and an opportunity to explore.

1. Walk from Princes Bridge in the city to Spencer Street.
2 Ride on the light rail tram, route 109 from Spencer Street along the former Sandridge railway line to Port Melbourne.
3 Explore the waterfront area of Beacon Cove and Port Melbourne.
