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.

Not safe for a solo women. In half an hour I was cat called FOUR TIMES walking down this street trying to mind my own business and enjoy my day. LISTEN UP MEN: stop honking your horns and shouting at us, if it is uncalled for IT IS HARASSMENT. Disgusting wounded little boys with no respect for the kind who bought you into this very world.

SOLO WOMEN: Skip this town all together, while I guess it’s still pretty Australia, there’s unfortunately nothing to do here (botanical garden and art gallery were tiny and everything is miles apart and most busses end at 5pm). I just felt so uncomfortable and underwhelmed here, especially after the other beautiful places I’d seen. Surprised this is a popular east coast stop.

For such a long esplanade walk on the coast for the most part the water is strangely hidden by trees. Seems like better planning is needed

Visited a few times during my recent stay in Hervey. I started my drive at Point Vernon and drove down to Urangan, stopping off to enjoy the views and a walk along the pathway. Plenty to do whatever the time of year.

Walk from Point Vernon to Urangan Pier. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy the view. Water stops along the way to keep the doggies hydrated. Great way to get your steps up

The Esplanade is a terrific place to wander the day away or take to your pushbike for a longer journey. The Esplanade is very accessible and flat for easy walking and riding.

The Esplanade goes on forever so do as little or as much as you like especially lovely at sunset. It runs the full length of every suburb.

Thoroughly enjoyed a daily long walk on this gorgeous beach. Shelly beach had lots of shells. Lovely little wharfs. Stunning boat views and sparkling blue waters.

this reminded me of the foreshore of the Gold Coast 40 years ago. Brought back great memories of casual walks on the beach and esplanade. Relaxing and not crowded
