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.

Melbourne and Olympic Parks together, form a large sporting precinct in the heart of Melbourne. It’s well served by public transport and in any case, is all within easy walking distance of the CBD. It’s a lovely walk along the banks of the Yarra.
Melbourne Park is most well known for hosting the Australian Open Grand Slam tennis tournament each year. The whole area comes alive during the tournament, with lots of energy and buzz. We had a brilliant week recently, staying in the city centre, walking to and from Melbourne Park each day for the AO tennis, and making the most of Melbourne’s wonderful foodie scene at night.
For anyone planning an upcoming trip, there are separate TA listings for Olympic Park Oval and also Melbourne Park as well as the main arenas, Rod Laver and Margaret Court.

Melbourne Park is the home of the Australian Open Tennis tournament, one of the prime events in Australia's summer of sport. Melbourne Park is easy to get to by tram or train, or you can walk from the city, it will take about a quarter of an hour, it's quite convenient. Olympic Park is close by, it was originally a training facility when the Olympic track and field events were held at the nearby Melbourne Cricket Ground in 1956. More recently, it's been used for sports such as Rugby League and Soccer.

The Melbourne and Olympic Parks complex is close to the heart of the City. Olympic Park ws initually built as a training facility for the 1956 Olympics athletics, held at the nearby MCG. Since then, the ground has hosted the Storm (rugby league) and the A-League's Melboune Victory (soccer). The venue is also used for entertainment. It's just about 15 minutes walk from the City.

My Wife and I have traveled from England for our 15 yr wedding anniversary to enjoy the LIAM Gallagher show.

What an absolute discrase.

We waited for the last song (our wedding song) and some bright spark pulled the plug half way through it.

I was told by staff that this was liam Gallagher who did this...Are you for real? I have seen him 15 times and never has he cut a gig short. Then told they went over their time slot - that's  it my fault either.

I am absolutely beyond frustrated and demand some kind of explanation as to why I paid a full price only for the concert to finish half way through the last song.

I have video  coverage of you security staff trying to make up excuse after excuse as to why this happened and will be happy to share my treatment with any current affairs channel.

We paid over 2.5 thousand pounds to be here for the show and to say this was a let down is an absolute understatement. 

To have a huge European act cut short is a huge shame on your part.

Please have someone contact me ASAP to discuss this matter as I feel I have paid for a show who h did not even get the chance to conclude
Shame on you...you should be embarrassed

On one evening here there could be an NRL game, a AFL game and an NBL game... and they all get good crowds. Is there a concentration of venues like this anywhere else in the world. All within easy tram access or a walk from the city.

Melbourne's sporting precinct is amazing with a number of world class stadia. As a proud Sydneysider it pains me to see these fantastic facilities winning the race to compete for international events. Well served by efficient public transport and within walking distance of the Melbourne CBD.

The venue is great. My average rating is because it cost me $21.20 for 4 x Cool Ridge 330ml (approx) bottles of water. Absolutely outrageous to charge $5.30 for water. I think a beer was $9.
You can buy 24 bottles of water for about $8. I am really annoyed with the venues pricing on this. So if you are going - bring your own!!!

Took the kids to see the Harlem globetrotters, great place to see them. Very personal great seating and able to see up close. Food and drinks expensive but that's expected. Overall a great experience.

Came here for a concert, holds approx. 7,500 which makes for a more intimate experience. Acoustics were good, great viewing aspect, toilet facilities were clean and plenty of staff - security, patron services, etc.
