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.

    Federation Square is great for its modern architecture and the awesome NGV. On a sunny day it's a great spot to sit down and rest up for a little while too. There don't seem to be too many food options right there but it is a decent place to relax, people watch and enjoy the beautiful views.

    Visited these markets for the first time and was very impressed with the variety of fresh produce, meat and seafood available under one roof. The kitchenware store there was very well stocked with almost anything you could wish for. Would definitely return on my next visit to the area.

    My friend and I spent several hours here. We had lunch at the food court. Then we browsed the shops. After shopping, we went to The LUME, which is adjacent to the outlets. (There is supposed to be a tourist lounge where out of area visitors can pick up coupons. I could not find that lounge so I would say to download the coupons on your phone beforehand.)

    Royal Arcade, Ausrralia's oldest shopping address, dates to 1870, the high point of Queen Victoria's reign. Gaunt's Clock is guarded by two ancient warriors, Gog and Magog. For exotic gifts, try sweet treats at Koko Black and boutique gifts at Spellbox. Royal Arcade is a quick trip across the Bourke St Mall from Myer.

    Buxton Contemporary is an art gallery specializes in contemporary art. Contemporary art often has a meaning that is difficult to discern at first contemporary art is in the process of supplanting Modernism. Contemporary art is often clever, with Australian theme. The Gallery is in walking distance of the NGV.

    Heard that this is an iconic shopping mall of Melbourne, so we went inside . Surprising, we managed to get a pair of shorts @29 (discounted). Items are slightly ex though. Similar to shopping centre (e.g. CK Tang) in Singapore.
