A W-Class tram that was renovated into a pop-up cafe in Rosalind Park's piazza could have a future at another site in the region.
The tram's future has yet to be confirmed but sites including the Hargreaves Mall have been considered as a new home.
The Union Jack-coloured tram was installed in the piazza at Rosalind Park for the Tudors to Windsors exhibition at the Bendigo Art Gallery. That exhibition closes this weekend.
City of Greater Bendigo major events and tourism manager Terry Karamaloudis said there had been a lot of discussion about the pop-up tram's future.
"The discussion at council for some time has been 'what is the future of this tram? Where could it have a new life?'" he said.
"We have had a look at whether it could be positioned in Hargreaves Mall. Investigative works show that the preferred site at the Mitchell Street end (of the mall), would be challenging (for it) to fit in that space.
"We will continue to look for an alternative site."
Bendigo Heritage Attractions chief executive Peter Abbott said a decision would be made in the coming weeks.
"We have a board meeting coming up to discuss its future," he said. "We haven't confirmed the move-out date yet and are working with council to (consider) opportunities for it to go somewhere.
"Wherever we put it takes effort to move, so it needs to be somewhere (it can stay) for a few months to be viable."
Mr Abbott said he felt the Bendigo public had fallen in love with the tram.
"The reaction we got when windows were broken showed me people fell in love with it," he said.
"There's opportunities to use it as an unique, different thing. A Bendigo attraction that the community loves."
Mr Karamaloudis encouraged community feedback on potential locations for the tram which could continue to operate as a pop-up business.
"They are wonderful heritage attractions (that could be) used as pop-up business," he said. "If it was up to me, I would have a tram located at the north, the south, the east and the western parts of (Greater Bendigo).
"I could see the benefit in a tram in Heathcote, where there's lots of space in the central precinct, one in Eaglehawk, we could look at Elmore on the northern corridor and one in Kangaroo Flat."
Mr Abbott said Bendigo Heritage Attractions would also consider selling the tram, which could mean it leaves Bendigo for another part of the state or country.

"It's an $80,000 tram. One option is to sell it and put the money into restoring an operating tram," he said.
"We did sell it initially to Chandon, it toured Australia and came back. So an option is to sell it and see it go somewhere else.
"All our trams are close to 100 years old, so they do take time and effort to keep operating."
