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.

Expected much more! Really not worth the effort. If you really want to do the walk, it is shorter, more straightforward and easier hike to start from the southern end of tennis courts (cnr Nott & Lambert Streets) NOT from the monument. It will take about 40 mins return, not a circuit just there and back the same way. Walk along the creek path and follow the Nature Walk signs. Go past the sign to the old mines, then up a gravelly rise (crossing the creek bed so the creek is now on your left) to a picnic area. You can just see Cathedral Rock from here. Right after the picnic tables you will need to follow the path over a barbed wire fence into private property, signs indicate that permission to walk is given but of course be respectful that it is private property. After this the path gets very steep and difficult. The Rock formation itself is much smaller and less imposing than I expected! On the return when you are back on the creek walk behind private houses, look out for giant spider sculpture in gum tree. Honestly this was better than the Rock.
