Tram route 70 is a public transport service in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It is operated by Camberwell Depot and runs from the Waterfront City Docklands to Wattle Park in Box Hill South. Like most tram routes in Melbourne, it is entirely within Metcard ticketing Zone 1.

The route runs along Docklands Drive, Harbour Esplanade, Flinders Street in the city, behind Melbourne Park (alongside the railway tracks) at Richmond and then links up to Swan Street, running along Riversdale Road through Hawthorn and Camberwell to the eastern end of Wattle Park, terminating at Elgar Road.

At the city end the tram once ran along Swan Street until reaching the Swan Street Bridge, then ran along Batman Avenue following the Yarra River until it reached the city terminus beside Princes Bridge, opposite Flinders Street Station. The current route was adopted as part of the Exhibition Street Extension project announced by the State Government in April 1998 and completed in October 1999,[1] where a four-lane divided road was built over the Jolimont railyards, enabling Batman Avenue west of Melbourne Park to be closed.
