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 Bendigo Visitors Centre is a useful place to find your way around Bendigo, The Bendigo Visitors Centre is located in a period building in Pall Mall, in the center of the city. The staff are very knowledgeable and always ready to help you. Bendigo has many attractions, many of them are within walking distance of the city center.

On our first visit to Bendigo we made the visitor centre one of our first stops. One of the staff approached us and was so helpful in not only suggesting places to visit but also advice on how to get there easily. Very proud ambassador for the region and the information we were provided with definitely enhanced our time. There was also two exhibitions and the gift shop has a lot of beautiful items for sale. Great to support the centre and the building is very grand with a surprise inside so worth taking some time at the beginning of any visit to receive the local intel firsthand.

Inside the town hall, the staff were very helpful. The best part is the local gifts and goodies on sale here. Well worth a visit for that and to see the Town Hall.

Bendigo's visitor centre is housed in an imposing and impressive building that once house the city's main post office, built in the 1880s. It is massive so I hope the city authorities are able to put all its space to good use. The visitor centre occupies just part of the ground-floor level and with its high ceiling is an impressive room in its own right. It houses plenty of well-organised information on Bendigo and surrounding districts, and when we visited three or four friendly volunteers keen to answer questions. (At least the one we spoke with was friendly and keen.) Shouldn't forget there are also shelves of local souvenirs to tempt. We walked away with some of the 'foodie' variety. Yum.
