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.

    Wherever you sit in this stadium, you will have a great view. We attended a Big Bash match and were entertained by a local band, some great tunes and plenty of places to eat/drink. Allow time on arrival as security will check all bags and perform body scans.

    Was a great stadium for the concert. The roof was closed in about 20 minutes when the rain came down midway through the concert. Patience is needed to exit.

    Centrally located with easy access to lots of hotels, dining & retail nearby. There is a mid sized COLES supermarket nearby. The only stop for the Airport Skybus - great that the alighting & drop off points are sheltered inside the station.

    This area is in the free tram zone and we took 86 down and 30 out. There is plenty of good walking around here and we enjoyed the breeze on this hot day.

    My wife and I walked from Flinders Street train station, along the riverfront to cross this bridge to get to Docklands. We spent a day in the city, had lunch and visited a few places before attending a musical performance at Hamer Hall at The Arts Centre.

    The views from this bridge are scenic. The Spring weather was very nice.

    Besides the renovations going on you can still go in and check this cute place out...
    sadly the outside has bits sprayed all over it because history should be left alone but guess that’s life.
    The chapel to enter 💒 just go up to the bar and someone will let you in,
    grab a drink while your there.
    The history is great and when you see old pics you can imagine how it was, spend around 30 mins to go though.

    The Cow Up a Tree is a highlight of the Docklands Precinct. The cow is stuck in a tree, and no-one knows what it's doing there. It looks like a dairy cow that was washed up in a flood. Either way, it's a noticeable feature of Docklands.

    The Bunjil sculpture dominates the Docklands cityscape. The Bujil sculpture is 25 metres (80 feet) tall. Bunjil is a totem of the Wurundjeri people, who inhabited this are before white settlement. Bunjil is incarnated as a wedge-tailed eagle, who soars freely above the earth.

    Located at the entrance opposite the McDonald’s is this historic clock tower. The beauty is ruined a bit by advertising boards

    In 1853, land for the Spencer Street railway reserve was set aside. In 1859, the first shed was constructed, followed by three more in the next decade. The Spencer Street railway sidings covered an area of 183 acres by 1882. Located next to Victoria dock, it provided a link between rail and sea transportation.

    Number two Railway good sheds were in continual use from 1889 to 1977, this was a central point for distribution of goods throughout the state. The sheds were 385 m long and 36 m wide. They were the largest good sheds in the state.

    What to expect these days at the site? You can expect beautiful historic buildings amidst modern architecture. They are a statement piece! They speak to the history of the area, they remind us of the past, they are quite beautiful and well worth retaining in this part of the city.

    I am so disappointed that now where have I seen the acknowledgment of the ladies auxiliary formed by my mother Dot Forder, Dot Thompson, Lorna Duncan, Silvia Malcolm, Phyllis O'Mara, and others connected with it's formation at Brunswick Street Oval. These ladies and their families contributed and enormous effort to cater for press dinners, club dinners, players functions and keeping all night hot drinks & food during finals ticket sales available. My mother Dot, had many footballers boarding at our home namely Noel Mugavin (uncle of Jonathon Brown, Brian O'Keefe father of Ryan O'Keefe, Neville Taylor, Father of Harry (I think) Our family was so heavily involved in the club Wally Forder & Bob Thompson to name two. I was a foundation member of the original cheer squad and served 12 years on the U19's committee. Every week we would take our clud fence banners home so they could be washed and cleaned for the following week, there would have been about 100 meters of banner strung up in our back yard. We had several first year Hamden League players live at our home and they where like family to us. Please acknowledge this as I get so frustrated that these unsung heroes go unnoticed. Mention this to Arthur Wilson, Ian Crawford, Kevin Murray, and most of the past players and management committees. These ladies contributed so much to make an awful amount of money from their kiosk as well saving hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in catering for any event that the club decided to run, sometime with less than twenty four hours notice. My 18th was the last function help in the original club rooms and I am now 71 yrd old. So you can see we go back a long way and rated many players as our close friends

    The Hub at Docklands is a modern community facility that is convemient to use by community groups and other organisations. Bookings are necessary, but the management are co-operative. There are a variety of spaces that are appropriate for a various activities. It's comveniently located for tram travellers. Although the Hub at Docklands was under-utilised during the Covid lockdown, it's now business as usual.

    This narrow, pointed building puts on a light display in the dark. During the day, it is still unique in its design and shape, just not visibly lit up.

    This is situated on the boardwalk at the Newquay Promenade. Made up of numerous pieces it is interesting during the day and I believe it lights up at night.

    While taking a stroll in this area on the northern side of Docklands, there are a number of art works to be seen. I don’t mind silence, it sort of doesn’t look out of place.
