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.

    Amazing building and lots of history I’d never learnt growing up in NSW. It’s a stunning old building of great historical significance and “Matt with a beard” brought it all to life. An excellent tour with lots of information. Matt was pleasant and informative with a wonderful grasp of the history and the significance of this building and Gabriel his 2IC has a friendly helpful attitude which is welcoming. The art work is fascinating. We loved our tour and would highly recommend it to others. Definitely book in advance so you aren’t disappointed as it is very popular.

    Good range of meats but lacking that smoked overload. Large platters to share and all enjoyed dishes but needed sauces.

    A little slice of green space in the city not far from Melbourne University. It's about the size of a small city block.

    Would you go out of your way to see it? No. It's just a small park area.
    Does it have anything of artistic value you just have to see? No. As above.

    However it is a pleasant area to 'take 5' if you feel the need and no doubt many university students over the years have done just that in between classes or similar.

    Hochgurtel Fountain, also known as Exhibition Fountain, is a huge fountain, located on the south side of the Royal Exhibition Building, outside the Great Hall. It was built in 1880 for Melbourne's International World Fair. It is a magnificent work of art.

    Part of Argyle Gardens, Carlton's Piazza Italia is an outdoor square that hosts special events in the area. It's a really pretty space with gorgeous illuminated Christmas decorations in it. It is located on the iconic Lygon Street so it's a lovely place to go for a walk through after you have eaten in one of the nearby eateries.

    It offers a green space that fits naturally into the landscape of the area. It is a lovely place to visit. My sister and I walked here admiring the decorations after eating dinner recently.

    St Judes, Carlton, is an Anglican church in the Evangelical tradition. Preaching is aimed at the University of Melbourne community, including residents at the University colleges. The church has been modernised, and includes some rust-red steel cladding. Parking can be difficult, public transport is recommendded.

    Located close to the Melbourne Museum, this small historic church is well maintained and filled with colourful wall paintings. Definitely worth a look so include in your downtown walking itinerary.

    The Cardigan Street Park is co-located with the Chapel of the historic Women's Refuge. The Chapel has been re-purposed as a Community Toy Library, but the tiny park is open all hours and has seating in the sun for resting and picnics.

    The oldest Trades Hall in the world is the claim for it. There are historic materials inside referring to the 8 Hour day campaign of about 140 years ago. Some interesting works in stone, timber and fabric.
