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.

    Laurie's outdoor exhibition really brightened up a dull overcast day. Only the dog was there to greet us but we spent over an hour viewing the works and considering their meanings.

    Laurie is a wonderful artist who can turn the mundane into something remarkable. And he has a message about the future for Australia.

    Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

    This is a nicely ordered park with a number of walks suitable for most people.

    Varied public artwork which provides facinating context and insight to the park. There are benches for rest and picnics.

    The Garden at Broughton Hall in Jindivick has four acres of terraced gardens overlooking the Tarago Reservoir with a fantastic view of the Great Dividing Range.

    My wife and I drove here to visit this lovely place and admire the work and effort that has been invested in developing such a magnificent Garden.

    There are seven main areas of the Garden, namely Yellow Garden, Cherry Walk, Pink Garden, Colonnade, Rock Outcrop, Upper Terrace and The Garden Room.

    In the Garden Room, there are comfortable seats and plenty of gardening books to read. Complimentary tea and coffee are also available here.

    And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair-- Khalil Gibran

    This community garden is towards the end of the town and it's really worth getting out of your car and having a walk through it. The locals have a vision to have a garden with a variety of vegetables, bush foods, fruit trees and heirloom plants using sustainable principles. A place where sounds and smells intermingle: where there is a biodiversity of flora and fauna and where artworks intrigue and delight.

    I think their vision is seeing fruition. It's inviting as you park your car and wander through... there are sculptures to delight you as you wander through the garden that is thriving. The garden shed lists their values and their vision so you can read about it ... but you know... you just know what their vision was because it's there... living and thriving in front of you.

    As you continue through the garden at the very back there is work out equipment. This was a bit odd for me initially and then I realised we were next to the cricket ground... and to be honest, with the views ... there would be no better place to put it. It encourages the younger generation to wander through the garden on their way to it... this community garden encourages everyone in the community to enjoy it.

    And the views... they are amazing. You need to walk to the back of the garden, through to the other side of the exercise equipment and stand there to take in those amazing views.

    In this small town, the church is quite eye-catching... it's a weatherboard building but it's hard to determine it's age. It's quite eclectic in how it is made up. Walk around the building and look at the eaves and you can't quite make sense of it. I have looked it up online and can't seem to find a history for it.

    What I can confirm is that services do occur in it still... so it's still used.

    The surrounding views are stunning to say the very least and the church itself is on a prominent corner in town with lovely shady trees.

    Jindivick Playground is not far from the cafe and it's quite small. But it has most certainly had community input with painted stumps and signs. It actually reflects the small towns personality a little.

    While there isn't much on offer in the playground... you are in a very small town, so it's to be expected and as always it is what you make of it.

    A park commemorates A. G. Pretty, who was a store owner in Jindivick. Lieutenant A.G.Pretty used to do the books for Mr Gillet who ran the Jindivick Store, and then he bought the business from Mr Gillet.

    When electricity came to the town, Pretty started to make iceblocks. These were very popular and sold for one penny each.

    The store had a wide range of food, stockfeed, hardware, haberdashery and farm merchandise. Every day there were orders delivered to a different area, including all the way to Drouin. On Wednesdays Pretty drove the Dodge truck to Melbourne to pick up supplies. Other goods were delivered to the Rokeby Railway Station to be picked up. This was mainly stockfeed, seed and so on.

    That Dodge truck was used to transport other loads as well. On Saturdays the footy team all loaded into the back to go to the game. Later that day a cargo of young people would be picked up to go to the pictures in Warragul, or to a Masonic dance.

    The War Memorial is also in the garden and it lists the names of four Jindivick residents who were killed in action during World War Two, and ten who died in service or were killed in action in World War One.

    It's a nice little stop to remember a local storeowner , as well as heroes from the war.

    Awesome day out, arrived around 9:30am.. from the Last Track creek maintain gate... The hike is varied, takes you through all types of bush

    Great area to hike in guys... Most of the trail is fire track and 4 wheel drive (up to the peak).
    The walk takes you through, everything from dry gum trees and low bushland to Green misty ferns and deep ravines. And the same for the track. Starts wide, take you through single file, dense trails, then on to fire tracks leading into an awesome climb and descent through 4 wheel drive terrain. Plenty of birds around and a small Roo jumped out onto the track at one point about an hour in... he looked like he was trying to get home as we were both caught in a downpour and he seems to be in a hurry, however, still managing a quick look at me... as if to say... You too!!
    The butterflies seem to follow you all day as well.. and there's plenty of Wombat holes...
    Definitely, a trek that requires hiking boots, the steep sections both up and down need the stability.. and if you have a set of walking poles take them with you..
    Definitely add this one to the list!!!!
