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 place to go on a hot day in Melbourne and wonder through the galleries. Much more than what I expected. Highly recommended if you’re in the area. Like someone said, not a tourist venue for the average tourist, but great for intelligent explorers.

    Our guide, Rita, was brilliant! Very helpful, informative and patient, and took us to many off the beaten track places. Highly recommended.

    I attended the Rotary International Convention and returned with memories of a wonderful networking experience. The place is well-suited for large conferences, clean, clean, with a tram system that takes you to the front of the complex. At no time did I feel lost because of the clear signage. The Exhibition Hall area was well laid out, and a helpful IT support system supported the breakaway rooms. During the breaks, restaurants are nearby, and one can walk along the Yarra River bank with its backdrop of the city and splendid architecture. Well worth the visit!

    Library at the Dock makes Docklands a more inviting place to live. Apart from books, it has a diverse range of formats for borrowers. Today there was 'playgroup for babies,' most of whom were 6 to 12 months old. The talented storyteller made the babies playgroup fun for everyone. The Melbourne City Council keeps the Library spick and span. It's certainly on the Dock, and it's easy to get to.

    Niddrie Library is a medium-sized library with a good book collection. It also stocks daily papers, including those in languages other than English. Story time for young children is popular with the younger set and their parents. If you want a book that is not in stock, he staff will order it in for you, or even buy it. By the way, excess books are on display, they are are often very interesting. You can buy a book for $1. The library likes to keep the collection fresh, so here is always something new coming up.

    This is a great place to go when there are events on, it can often get busy but it’s a pretty huge venue, easily accessible by public transport (57 and A Special Events Train). One of the biggest carnival happens here, The Royal Melbourne Show. If your in Melbourne while there is an event you should really go.

    The Melbourne Visitor Hub is located on the ground floor of the Melbourne Town Hall. The Visitor Hub has numerous brochures about the attractions in the City. There are always docents who are ready to give advice. Central Melbourne is laid out in a grid pattern, once you have sorted that out getting around is easy. Just remember that Melbourne's famous trams go in straight lines. By the way, due to construction work, there is no visitors center in Federation Square.

    Located in Flinders Lane, between Swanston Street and Degraves Street, is the City Library. There are the standard COVID access checks to get in, and then it’s to what ever section takes your interest. Quite popular even in these times.

    Flemington Library has been reconstructed. The attractive new second-floor auditorium hasted a humorous Mexican movie recently, which was very entertaining. As part of the updated faculties, there is a lift going from the ground floor to the second floor, which is convenient. Flemington Library is an inner-city facility, it's popular with City of Moonee Valley residents.

    The Fitzroy Gardens Visitor Information Centre has a range of pamphlets on offer to places all around Melbourne.

    The staff can also help and recommended the many attractions, tailored to your own personal taste throughout the city.

    Located opposite Cook’s Cottage, it’s also where you purchase tickets for this attraction itself.

    I have always been adamant that Visitor Centres should always be your first port of call, regardless of wherever in the world you seem to travel to.

    Lastly, remember and respect that on many occasions, the staff are actual volunteers.

    For an exclusive small group conference location, great food and iconic building with a surprising history. Beautiful grounds.

    Within walking distance of tram route and opposite the lovely Curtin Square. Seems to be a quieter atmosphere than most other libraries

    The Baillieu Library is the largest discipline-specific library on the Univerity of Melbourne Parkville campus. The library was funded as a philanthropic guesture by the well-known Baillieu family. The library is built in Modernist style; it was opened in 1959 by Prime Minister Robert Gordon Menzies QC, an alumnus of the university. The Baillieu library specialises in the arts, humanities and social sciences, with the aim of fostering research, learning and teaching. Over 200,000 rare and historic books, magazines, pamphlets and literary archives are housed in the Baillieu's special collections. It is the largest non-governmental archive in Australia. If you lined up the storage boxes side by side, they would extend some 15 km (over 9 miles). The Baillieu is, on the whole, a quiet library. It often has special displays from the collection, which are quite fascinating.

    Saria, Divya and Mandira were wonderful hosts. I had delicious food, a full glass as often as I needed it, and every need attended to. The experience of resting at The House lounge at Tulla was as close to frictionless as travel can be. Thank you so much!
