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.

The Neerim District Community Bank sponsors the Neerim Bower Acquistion Art Prize and in 2016 Nicole Allen's Astro Boy was the second sculpture to take pride of place in Neerim South's Main Street after winning.

As for the artist -- Nicole mainly works in mild steel, Cor 10 or stainless steel, and a mixture of all three. She begins her artistic process by creating a three-dimensional armature in steel, and then ‘panels’ the armature with smaller pieces of steel. She then grinds the ‘panels’ back, to create the required shape and finish. She then hand sand casts the sculpture, in either aluminum or bronze.

It's one of those pieces that will stop you in your tracks and make you ask 'Why'? And isn't that what Art should do? Make you think outside of your normal thought bubble. I love that this town has embraced this process and is enjoying Victorian Artist's work every day. This will only take a few moments out of your day, but you should stop to look at Astro. :)
