Glebe Trams

A Glebe Society Community Festival event

Hear stories from transport historian Col Gilbertson, and see images from the early days of trams in Glebe. Find out where the routes went, about the remnants of Glebe’s tram history which you can still see today and the significance of the Rozelle Depot.

Glebe Point Road trams began in 1892. Trams ran every 6 minutes on weekdays, increasing to every 4 minutes at peak hour and Saturday evenings.

The first trams were powered by steam and terminated at Millers Point. The Rozelle Tram Depot (now adaptively re-used as the Tramsheds) was built in 1904 for the electrified Western tram lines, which closed on 22 November 1958.

For many years the Glebe Society actively lobbied government to re-open the Western Goods line for a light rail service. History was remade with the light rail opening in 2000.
