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.

    Lovely to walk through Glebe. Even better if you go on a Saturday and can visit the Glebe Markets. Full of interesting stalls and you can grab some good bargains. Equally nice is wandering through the streets and soaking up the atmosphere of people watching the locals who are grabbing a coffee at their local cafe. Its walking distance from Broadway or else you can get a bus here from the city

    I worked in this area over 40 yrs ago so was interested to see the changes. In my day there was just a few shops but now it's been redone and has heaps of the larger stores plus boutique shops . The outside looks old and plain but inside looks amazing. I was very impressed. Looks totally different to other shopping areas in Sydney.

    Wentworth Park is a rather large space divided into areas, with a school and greyhound track in the middle. There are open grass areas, exercise spaces and paths, plus plenty of seating. A nice green space in central Sydney.

    An unexpectedly large public park running alongside Sydney University. From busy Parramatta Road, it doesn’t look that big but it stretches back, covering 9 hectares.
    It is conveniently across the road from the Broadway shops. Most tourists probably won’t find themselves down this part of the city but if you do, this is a nice spot to stretch their legs.
    The highlight is a large natural lake with two teeny weeny islands and lots of birds and pond life. Peer closely into the water and you’ll see fish, turtles and long, fat eels.
    Other attractive features include the historic entrance gates and original gardener’s lodge. Surprisingly, there is also a totem pole. It’s the real deal - a gift from Canada in 1964.
    Paths wind their way through the park and are perfect for bikes and kids’ scooters. There is a large, well-maintained playground and wide open grassy expanses with shady retreats under the mature trees beside the lake.
    There’s a swimming pool complex in the centre, with kids pool, a 50m pool, gym and cafe. Entry to the park itself is free but you pay for the pool, $7 adult/$20 family.

    Jubilee Park is one of many in this area of Glebe. There is Bicentennial Park towards the water and the Tramsheds to the rear. There is also a stop for the Light Rail at the back of the park too. The main part of this park is the cricket oval surrounded by a white picket fence.

    The Orient hasn't disappointed us ever and our dinner was excellent yet again. All the steaks were cooked as requested and the cauli curry was the best. Always good, always friendly and helpful.

    Well laid out and presentable cinema with comfortable reclining seating. Food and beverage selection was good and the premises were very clean.

    Laid back little gem located in the back streets of Glebe. Reminded me of a country pub. Basic pub grub in the dining room - the falafel / haloumi salad looked fantastic. Highlight is George the cockatoo, who was sitting on top of one of the external doors.

    The most indulgent & body-mind-soul nourishing massage that I’ve ever experienced. I cannot express just how magnificent Inner Balance Massage really is - Gerald is warm, open, comforting, respectful & a perfectionist in the absolute best way. No detail is missed from introductions to overviews, equipment, skincare products, essential oils, energy work & of course the massage itself. So glad I found this ! It’s on a whole new level. You are in the most professional, magical, caring, connected & dedicated hands. ✨

    Gorgeous and relaxing experience. I went for the Aromatherapy Massage, and had Yuki (lovely women!!) as my masseuse. With full control over which scent I'd like to had in the diffusers, calming music and time after to sit and drink some tea, the experience was overall amazing; the best I've had in a long time.

    Friendly staff who are well informed and will explain anything you need to know about crystals. They have a large variety on display. Will definitely be back.

    Gleebooks has been there for, well, for ever! As far as we can remember it has always been there and has always carried the book you needed. We have there a few times and found the staff to be quite approachable. We would recommend it if you were to be looking for a book, especially a book of substance!

    Took a chance and ordered takeaway pizza from Angelico. Good choice. The frutta di mare pizza was a knockout.
