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.

    What a beautiful museum telling an important story and offering a vital message for everyone - Jewish or not. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Located in a lovely part of the city. Put it on your must see list for Sydney.

    Visited with my wife. A very detailed and interesting museum charting Australia's culture and history. Allow yourself plenty of time!

    This was a charming abet small market. I thought it would be a lot bigger. Easy to get to on the bus. A variety of booths from clothing to jewelry, to fruits and vegetables and a small but vibrant group of stalls with food to eat. I just thought it would be bigger. I did find a booth with knit clothing and ended up buying two knit dresses and a top and slacks. It was called Matea. The salesperson/designer was delightful and I have already worn two of the pieces. There is an online shop too.

    May be a very good stadium but parking facilities and access are atrocious. 1hr 45mins to get out of the car park is totally unacceptable.
    This ruined the whole experience.

    Located in the inner Sydney suburb of Paddington accessible from Oxford street or Oatley street. A decommissioned reservoir early source of water supply for Sydney. Repurposed for park and garden.
    Popular location for wedding photos. Accessible by public transportation. Hidden gem for visitors.

    Dedicated to the serviceman and woman of the military, is this impressive concrete structure, probably not a stand alone attraction however, worth a look.

    I did the tour today with the Corps of Guides at Victoria Barracks. An informative tour around the grounds and pointed out some historical parts not often seen. There are guns on display from the earliest dates of settlement after the First Fleet arrived. The well is an interesting part of the history, with the depth at roughly 60 feet. There are not many military establishments that have heritage listed graffiti.
    As previous posts have mentioned, tours are available, generally on a Thursday or a weekend. There are just some hoops to jump through.

    Only a small gallery but the subject matters seem fascinating - the current exhibition on housing materials would have very specific and unique appeal but for those people, it is an excellent exhibition - would have loved to participate in a talk to get more benefit from it.

    Went on the "blue mountains day trip with harbour cruise"
    Guide was nice. Not really an entertaining guy but told us what needed to be told. Ticket and advertising stated included morning tea... that didn't happen.
    Spent a while collecting money for attractions after lunch, Why isn't this just paid in the booking?.
    Harbour cruise???? Was ferry back to harbour in the dark. To avoid traffic.
    That's fine but why not state that. Paid as part of trip then given back $10 cash to cover the ferry that can not be paid by cash!, go figure
    Very poor organisation.
    I recommended just go on the train and miss out on the totally unecessary zoo stop... which if you don't want to go in you just sit on a bench for an hour. Long day . Most of it on the small cramped coach.
