Remember that there may be crowds, so plan both your ticketing and group movements with that in mind. Using a go card is a quick way to ensure that you and your companions all have valid tickets for travel on the tram. Alternatively, you can buy paper tickets at the station.

When you have your tickets, and the next tram arrives, push the illuminated button on the tram to open the door. Make sure everyone is ready and all board at the same time. Once on board, remember to hold on, or sit down at all times.

Free travel on the G: is permitted to all participants, staff or volunteers in possession of either a wristband, volunteer/crew t-Shirt or bib for:

  • Saturday 2 July from 4:30am to 1:00pm
  • Sunday 3 July from 4:00am to 3:00pm
