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.

Drove through town on a visit to nearby Sykes Sanctuary and enjoyed the topiary along the way. Stopped on way back for photos and then a coffee at the local cafe (it's a good one).

We only viewed the creations adjacent the highway as we passed through town and with a few stops for photographs. We expected to see topiary of similar quality to what we have enjoyed elsewhere. The town has some examples that have been well maintained but others look forlorn and unkempt. The four examples at the War Memorial can easily be identified as soldiers but are poorly shaped. The horse & rider with dog trotting behind look great from a distance. Boxing kangaroo and train engine require some TLC. The best examples were probably the 'whorl' shapes alongside the highway. Great potential but requires constant attention.

I guess re-imagining tiny Railton as 'the town of topiary' is that place's response to the huge success nearby Sheffield has had as 'town of murals'. From what I saw, Railton still has a lot of catching up to do. Sheffield is most definitely worth a stop, Railton and its assorted topiaries? Only if you have time to kill

Most of the topiaries have been left unattended, in disrepair or unmaintained. You can see the remnants of the glory days but it has since fallen away. The spiral topiaries maintained by Council (I assume) are still in good order. Worth a stop in passing through but I wouldn't go out of my way.

Slow down and enjoy these topiary. Some creative shapes around, some need a bit of maintenance, but as a way to stop, revive & survive a roadtrip, this makes a great distraction

Not on the beaten track, but this small town is a must see if you are into topiary. The imagination and effort that goes into creating and maintaining these works of art have to be seen to be believed.

We visited in March 2020. The topiary trees don’t seem well maintained. We went out of our way to see them but if you’re not traveling through Railton I would make a special trip.

Lots of different things to see. I definitely liked the soldiers and horse with jockey but my highlight was the fisherman.

Worth the short photo stops as you drive/driven along.

Railton certainly lives up to the name "Town of Topiary" and it is well worth taking a few minutes to check them out. Lots of different ones to see but I loved the tree soldiers near the memorial and the jockey on a horse jumping over a fence.

It seemed that Railton was involved with a Breast Cancer fund raising event and the town had been decorated with all shades of pink ribbons/clothes/flags/streamers and the like. Many of the topiary plants had been beautifully decorated. What an outstanding job these people did. The town has so many topiary plants but the highlight is the topiary park just off the main street. It's located in Crockers St and is well worth the look. A lovely little town you should see on your way to Cradle Mountain.
