About us

The Connies is a collective of tram conductors, performers, educators, ecologists and nature lovers touring festivals, shows and other events throughout Victoria and beyond.

We entertain, educate and inform, creating and distributing beautifully crafted collectable swap-cards that bring environmental, social, historic and cultural themes to your community.

We are a performance troupe born of the rich 112 year Melbourne Tram Conducting tradition. We continue the rites of bag and tickets. The Connies bring along a yarning, poetic and singing trammie tradition. We dress in uniforms that span the era’s of tram fashion, and swing beautifully crafted antique leather conductors bags filled with cards and yarns.
