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.

    Melbourne Zoo is one of the nicest we’ve ever visited. It’s clean and well thought out. The animals appeared to be very well cared for and their habitats designed so they can be out if/when they choose. Unfortunately, the platypus wasn’t up for visitors the day we visited so we left Australia without ever getting to see one. 😭

    Royal Park is a large inner park on the outskirts of the City of Melbourne. In fact, it's the most expansive park in the City. The park has a wide range of sporting facilities, and an up-to-date playground for children. The Royal Park Golf Course is a breeding place for champions, and it's only 3 km (2 miles) from the City. He best place to access the park is through Gatehouse St.

    Despite a hard winter, Trin Waaren Tam-boore pond is showing signs of life, The nearby White's Skinhk Habitat is a valuable nature reserve.

    This reserve is rather plain, It fronts on Flemington Road then runs backwards for quite a way. The children's playground is fun for the younger ones. Apart from the toilet, there's also a water fountain. Eivers Reserve is easy to access from Flemington Road, it's a good place to kick a ball around.

    The park is a lovely patch of green surrounded by houses and apartment blocks. There is a children's playground and some exercise equipment along this large slice of parkland in the creek valley. During lockdown the outdoors becomes even more important.

    Parkville Gardens surrounds the old Royal Park Psychiatric Hospital and consists of paths, well maintained lawns and some shade trees. It has no other facilities, but has a pleasant outlook onto the old buildings.
