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 travellers are saying
- Visited on Tuesday 2nd May. Made a point of stopping to see Burnett House, it part of the heritage area in Darwin, on display are 4 houses which survived the Bombing of Darwin and Cyclone Tracy.Written 16 June 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The old Star Theatre site is now some little boutique shops and cafes. They close early on weekdays. There is a little bit of signage inside about the old theatre that was destroyed in Cyclone Tracy in 1974. It's tucked away in the mall, I had walked past several times before I even noticed it.Written 1 October 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Our visit to Survivors' Lookout was a great way to read about some of the history of the Darwin Harbour area. The information boards in the area create an interesting time line to follow. It is a pity that the vegetation has been allowed to grow in front of the viewing platform so the view is very patchy. Having said this it should not discourage visitors from going and checking it out.Written 9 October 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Nothing really to see (just the remnants of two walls that survived the destruction of Cyclone Tracy in 1974). No need to go out of your way to see, but if in the area, have a quick look. The history of the building is interesing.Written 29 September 2023
- Colourful, light and stylish fashions well suited to the Top End lifestyle. Well worth a visit to look right in place in Darwin.Written 9 August 2022
- This is one of the few old Westpac branches still open and a very well-built old bank branch, It survived the Japanese bombing and has the bullet holes displayed in metal plates. It was also damaged in cyclone Tracy but has solidly built not as damaged as many other buildings. It also has the back part as a Sate Bank SA branch.Written 25 September 2023
- The original Admiralty House was built in 1937 and in 1951 moved to its present site 70 Esplanade. It has some of the original trees from its first site. It is now Chars restaurant.Written 25 September 2023
- Lyons Cottage is one of the oldest buildings in Darwin City. It was built in 1925 to house the workers on the British Australia Telegraph Line. It is the only remaining example of colonial bungalow architecture left in Darwin.Written 25 September 2023
