Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is amazing to see 20ft high enclosed fish tank. It's huge. The talks that are given throughout the Aquarium and very informative and engaging. Every exhibit is very well presented. The best, is feeding time in the huge tank as the fish know when it is about to happen. Really beautiful to see the diverse living coral reefs. Something for all age groups as the portholes at a lower level for young children to see in. It also includes reptiles and frogs from inland Queensland waterways..
