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.

This museum is a must visit. Pip gave us a very informative presentation on the life of Dorothea Mackellar. A most interesting part of the visit is the 32 piece Watercolour collection by Jean Isherwood each depicting a verse in Dorothea's famous poem.

It was near the hospital. It is not well sign posted in town for visitors, but I guess the locals no where it is. Thank goodness they don't have 60 degree reverse angle parking at the centre.
