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
- The City Hall building is in the middle of modern skyscrapers and has a lot of local Brisbane history. It’s also near a couple of outdoor shopping/eating areas. It’s well worth a stop to check it out and if you have time to go inside and do a tour.Written 29 October 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We were walking around the building looking at the architecture and noticed there was a sign for tours in less than an hour so we signed up. You are not allowed to take photos but in one place and the lobby so can only see the actual parliament chambers. It was interesting tour and was only 45 min, somewhat rushed. Didn’t see any thing that was secret to not take photos and have taken photos of way more secret areas in other places and countries.
When I looked at the photo of all the parliament officials I asked if Australia was most all white government and that made the white female guide very uneasy. The photo is all white out of 250-ish people but she explained how there was a native person and some person with bloodline of something … I’m white … she was white … did not mean to make her uncomfortable but clearly it was a touchy subject!Written 16 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Government House Brisbane is a Victorian era mansion. It is one of the most distinctive buildings in Brisbane. Government House is the official residence of the Governor of Queensland. It has been the Governor's official residence since 1911. Government House is surrounded by attractive formal and native gardens. It's open from time to time, it's well worth taking a tour.Written 3 August 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The GPO is situated near Anzac Square. The would be a fair amount of history in this building. There are a couple of memorial plaques at the front to those who lost their lives during the two world wars. Worth a look.Written 12 May 2019
