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.

    Great amenities, friendly staff, close to restaurants and cafes. Nice walks along the board walk and easy access to the city for events.

    The Ron Barassi Sr park is named after the iconic footballer. The park ends under the Bolte Bridge, at the edge of the Moonee Ponds Creek.

    While staying in Melbourne recently I went for a walk to Docklands to have a look around.
    It was very enjoyable walking around the area early in the morning.
    Just a few walkers about, plenty of great boats to see tied up in the marina. The place looked very clean and welcoming, Some arty stuff to see and some nice restaurants to eat at.
    Lots of high rise apartment blocks, I assume it is a nice place to live, they would get great views over the water and the city skyline.
    Interesting to watch the traffic slowly passing over the Bolte Bridge,
    Brought back memories of our past tough premier Henry Bolte.
    It was fantastic to see quite a few hot air balloons passing over the water and city.
    Only a few minutes walk from the main city, give it a try.

    Visited on my recent stay in May, I could see it from my apartment window so went to check it out, more so for the unusual tree sculptures there.

    This is a quite compact park that has bits of everything. There is a playground for the kids as well as grassed spaces and sporting courts. There are sculptures and places to sit. Nice place.

    Awesome place to visit. Great meal and service at Foxys Bar. The souvenir shop is a complete nightmare as the service was appalling the young girl seemed half asleep. No help what so ever.
    Needs to be trained and assessed on customer service skills.

    My wife and I walked here from Flinders Street train station along the riverfront. It has been many years since we were here, so we decided to have a look at some of the new developments.

    A lot of tall office buildings and apartments. We visited the library which has waterfront views.

    I am not sure if the title ‘Monument Park’ is the right name for this. They look more like abstract art versions of volcanoes. Some of which people can climb on or walk through. A little different.
