Tram route 57 is a public transport service in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It runs from the corner of Flinders Street and Elizabeth Street in the city centre to West Maribyrnong in the inner Western suburbs.
The route runs along Elizabeth Street in the city, Victoria Street in West Melbourne, Errol Street, Queensberry Street and Abbotsford Street in North Melbourne, Flemington Road in Parkville, Racecourse Road through North Melbourne, Kensington, Newmarket and Flemington, Epsom Road through Flemington and Ascot Vale, Union Road and Maribyrnong Road in Ascot Vale, and Raleigh Road and Cordite Avenue in Maribyrnong where it terminates at the corner of Cordite Avenue and Central Park Avenue.
Route 57 shares track with route 82 between the intersection of Maribyrnong Road and Union Road, Ascot Vale; and Raleigh Road and Wests Road, Maribyrnong. A loop siding exists at the south end of Union Road in Ascot Vale, and is used during special events at the Royal Melbourne Showgrounds and Flemington Racecourse to handle the additional trams used to move the crowds of passengers.
There have been proposal, supported by the Public Transport Users Association and local politicians, to extend route 57 north-west along Milleara Road to Avondale Heights and East Keilor. Variations of this proposal including building a park and ride facility near the terminus, or establishing a high frequency bus service between the terminus and East Keilor down Milleara Road.
