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.

Originally named Petersburg after the landowner, Peter Doecke, who sold land to create the town. It was one of 69 places in South Australia renamed in 1917 due to anti-German sentiments during World War I. The first settlers started to arrive here in 1875.

The town has a substantial history -with wealth generated as the railways offered up a lot of employment. The town has a lot of heritage listed buildings and for anyone with an interest in history, you will enjoy being in this town.

You can collect a map from the Visitor Information Centre, or alternatively google 'Peterborough Heritage Walk' and find a copy online. The walk takes about an hour and a half to complete...the area is for all fitness levels as most of it is flat.

35 buildings are listed on the map. BUT if you want to walk around without this map, the signs are also along the edges of the pavement explaining the significance of the buildings.
