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.

    St Joseph’s offers a peaceful and reflectfull atmosphere to pray, think, meditate or just have a few calm moments with you and your God. I found it on the way to having a massage for a sore neck and just found calm and peace. The building is lovely and the interior simple but interesting. Mass times are published on the website, or just pay a visit, it is lovely.

    Lovely spot to take photos of CBD and river. Watch the cruise boats passing under bridge. Can be a nightmare if driving over at times. Best bet is too visit via Yarra trail from city.

    The Blind Institute was designed by the same people who designed the Deaf School and was built at around the same time - 150 years ago in the Gothic Revival Style. Much of the site has now been repurposed into other uses..

    Who was John Darling? In the 1880s he lived for some years in Melbourne where he founded another main office and, after a second visit to America and Europe, became known as the 'Grain King', the biggest shipper of wheat from Australia. By 1890 the firm also had immense interests in flour-milling and shipping together with a large London office managed by his son Charles.

    Darling could justly claim: 'I carried grain and flour on my back for 12 years. I have since then carried grain and flour on my brain for over 35 years'.

    This building was erected in 1883 for John. With the delightful use of bluestone, the building also has voussoirs. A voussoir is a wedge-shaped element, typically a stone, which is used in building an arch or vault.

    It is in the early institutional English Gothic style and dates back 150 years. It is part of the early social welfare programme of the colonial government (as is the Blind Institute nearby). On a large area of land and with a playground near the front gate, the building is quite impressive.

    This simple monument celebrates the dedication and sacrifice of Australia nurses during the Second World War. It has flag poles and some surrounding vegetation.
