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.

- A wonderful place of history, heritage and serenity with outstanding views of Brisbane city. A fantastic wedding venue.

- I stumbled upon this temple when wondering around the South Bank Park. It was not open to go inside but was able to walk around and see the temple right behind the Brisbane Wheel. Definitely worth 5-20 minutes to check out when in the area.Written 16 November 2023
- This is a small heritage listed church on Wickham Terrace. Closed other than for church services, I had to be satisfied with viewing the exterior which was a shame as the church has a rich history and I would have liked to see the interior. The present building dates to 1869 replacing a smaller church that was constructed on site in 1861. Construction is style is nineteenth century Gothic Revival and walls are buttressed. The windows are highly ornate with lancet, rose and quatrefoils all containing stained glass and dressed stone surrounds. The stained glass windows on the East end are the oldest in Brisbane. There is a sculpture in the garden, Christ Accepting His Cross by Andor Mészáros, with the plaque inscribed to commemorate a century of the church on Windmill Hill in 1962. The foundation stone is embedded in the wall with attached plaque.Written 14 November 2021

- When the early settlers came to Brisbane they selected the hill tops for the churches so everyone knew where they were . This a fine example of the architecture of the time - very peacefulWritten 3 March 2017
- One of only two churches of any denomination that was open when I visited. It dates to 1905 and served as St Andrews Presbyterian Church until 1977 when Presbyterian, Methodist and Congregational Churches joined to form the Uniting Church. The building style is Neo-Romanesque and considered one of the finest examples in the Southern Hemisphere. Like many of the Presbyterian churches that we have sighted on our travels, the exterior of the building looks rather austere with minimal ornamentation as normally befits a church building. The church member that I met inside was very happy to guide me through the church and explain the significance of the stained glass windows. The original windows were glazed n pastel coloured leadlights and some remain whereas others have been reglazed in stained glass. The lofty ceiling is impressive but for me, the main interior feature is the organ in the tiered chancel.Written 14 November 2021
- I noticed this church during my walk along Ann Street while I was looking for a catholic church in Brisbane. Located at a busy intersection, it was inviting so I briefly entered and said my prayers. I did not care what type of religious building it is, prayers could be said anywhere, both inside and outside any religious buildings. Happy and safe travels!Written 7 April 2015
- A run down but lovely little Catholic church hidden away in busy Fortitude Valley. Still has its old alter at the back of the church and very interesting atmosphere.Written 27 February 2016

- Brisbane was a cruise stop, and we were told by our excursion guide that Brisbane is the fastest growing city in Australia. It's part of Australia known as Queensland, and you will be amazed by the number of skyscrapers that are therem and continue to be built. Sadly, our Brisbane guide did not know if there was a synagogue in Brisbane, so during the tour, we googled and found that there was indeed one in the city proper on Margaret Street (we explored after the tour was over). As of 1992, it's a heritage-listed building that dates back to the late 1800's, It's circular tracery window on its facade is beautiful, and the building is symmetrical, with an arched entranceway in the middle. Its denomination in modern orthodox. We were fortunate to be able to go inside. If you want to tour the inside, make sure to make arrangements ahead of time. Definitely worth a visit -- gorgeous in its simplicity and understated majesty.Written 5 January 2020
- Really quite an incredible place! Very much alive. A great place for showing what 21st century Christianity is all about.Written 5 September 2018
- This is a rather nice looking church, located just next to the central station.
Having said that, visiting it during the erratic opening hours us a pure game of luck.Written 18 January 2020
