A tourist trying to take a photo in Melbourne has walked away with just minor injuries after tripping and falling under a tram.

The 36-year-old woman was trying to take a holiday snap next to the tracks on Victoria Parade at Abbotsford on Wednesday night when she tripped and hit her head.

The front of the tram rolled over the woman, who was lying on the tracks, but she was not hit and was taken to hospital with just minor injuries.
