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.

    So many beautiful cats! The place was tidy and clean and all the cats looked very happy to be there. Sarah was great and welcomed us in warmly, telling us all about the many cats. Great value and will be back soon! Xx

    We went with friends for a 7 year old reptile party for the kids. The crocodiles and snakes were amazing and very, very friendly. The handlers took their time with the young children and the parents probably liked the wildlife even more than the kids. Worth every cent!

    With lawns by the river, plus seating, picnic tables, and BBQs, this is a useful park for the city workers. There are also public toilets on Spencer Street, next to the tram stop. Not a lot of shelter except under the railway viaduct.

    This small park is one of the most significant historic sites in Melbourne. On 30 August 1835, the schooner Enterprize landed the first settlers, who became the founders of the city of Melbourne. Enterprize Park later became a centre of immigration; cargo was also landed here. The park is on the north bank of the River Yarra, between the Melbourne Aquarium and Queens Bridge Street; it's easy to find. The site was also a camping ground for the indigenous inhabitants. The council is upgrading the area to make access more convenient. Melbourne Day is celebrated here every year.
