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.

A park commemorates A. G. Pretty, who was a store owner in Jindivick. Lieutenant A.G.Pretty used to do the books for Mr Gillet who ran the Jindivick Store, and then he bought the business from Mr Gillet.

When electricity came to the town, Pretty started to make iceblocks. These were very popular and sold for one penny each.

The store had a wide range of food, stockfeed, hardware, haberdashery and farm merchandise. Every day there were orders delivered to a different area, including all the way to Drouin. On Wednesdays Pretty drove the Dodge truck to Melbourne to pick up supplies. Other goods were delivered to the Rokeby Railway Station to be picked up. This was mainly stockfeed, seed and so on.

That Dodge truck was used to transport other loads as well. On Saturdays the footy team all loaded into the back to go to the game. Later that day a cargo of young people would be picked up to go to the pictures in Warragul, or to a Masonic dance.

The War Memorial is also in the garden and it lists the names of four Jindivick residents who were killed in action during World War Two, and ten who died in service or were killed in action in World War One.

It's a nice little stop to remember a local storeowner , as well as heroes from the war.
