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.

Take the time to go through the fettlers cottages so you can listen and look at the historic information and life if someone living in the shire.
I was moved by the information about the effects of the 2019 floods. I thought I knew but I soon realised that didn't understand. I'm so sorry for the damage that was caused.
I'm really impressed by the positive nature of residents.
The Dunnart feeding was good but would have liked 2 marsupials, not just one.

A friendly, clean & lovely town. We stayed at the caravan park where we indulged in the Artesian baths, a must do, amenities were absolutely spotless.

The Julia Creek Hotel is a great quirky pub to have a nice cold beer in, highly recommend.

The new cafe in town, Corrine’s makes a great coffee & toasted sandwich.

What a great little information centre. Helpful local staff. Three cute little restored railway buildings reused as self-guided information stalls with informative displays and concise short videos. Best bit is the display of the endangered Julia Creeek dunnarts (sort of carnivorous marsupial mice)

This compact centre (opened in 2009 and extended in 2011) comprises three other buildings - formerly railway accommodation huts - showcasing farming, industry and commerce. The Information Centre itself has a wealth of relevant brochures and locally-made souvenirs showcasing the many talents in and around Julia Creek. Next door is the Dunnart display where these tiny mouse-like creatures, in the darkened Display area, can be seen in their natural habitat, including constant running on an upright spinning wheel. They have feeding times at 10.00am and again at 2.30pm and entry costs $10.00 or so, but it's well worth it. As are, indeed, the recreated and interactive displays in the three other structures in the centre.

Local Monday night dinner was amazing. A must do at the caravan park. But you don’t have to stay at the caravan park to go to the dinner.
