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.

    There's heaps of performances on this year at Club Voltaire. It's become an unofficial second home for the festival, with the organisers sending shows that aren't part of hub straight around the corner. One such show is Night Terrors. The show features four horror stories and comes from the guys that did last year's A MIDNIGHT DREARY and BULLET: A Superhero Comedy. Main player Stefan Taylor wears old school clothing and performs the stories as a British narrator, but jumps in and out of all these different characters like someone out of Little Britain. The soundtrack they have running live on the night is creepy and adds to the atmosphere. The stories were The Beast in the Cave, by H.P. Lovecraft, The Wailing Well, by M.R. James
    The Telltale Heart, by Edgar Allan Poe, (a classic) and The House on the Lake, by Mark Newton, which is a fun one to end it on. Go see the show! You book via the Melbourne Fringe website.

    We actually planned on visiting the nearly Royal Park playspace but found it uncomfortable due to heat and lack of shade. Came instead to this excellent park and garden. Located across the road from swimming pool and footy ground that’s home to AFL team north Melbourne.

    TIP: plenty of street parking in middle of Haine St

    Great lineup & we had a great laugh. This establishment has commercialised every aspect they possibly can which makes good business sense. Food was average although the tiramisu was fabulous! Lots of announcements but friendly service. All in all a good fun night.

    This is worth a visit just for its unusual design. dating back to 1877, this cast iron drinking fountain was presented to the citizens of the Town of Hotham. It was designed by Walter McFarlane. I do like the Kangaroo featured in the centre.

    The long time home of the AFL team North Melbourne Kangaroos.

    Underwent and still undergoing redevelopment of facilities.

    The immaculate oval itself is open for your to run laps or kick a footy.

    A great ground that started hosting VFL games again after a long absence.

    Also home to various other facilities for community.

    TIP: lots of street parking on Arden St. but I park on Fogarty st and this takes you to behind the goals

    This part of Melbourne (north Melbourne,Carlton etc) has many lovely little pocket parks/gardens that make great use of limited space. Lovely spot to sit and relax near the tram stop

    Historic old building that is an architectural gem. Well worth a stop and look if you are in the area:

    Pretty fenced off dog park with mature trees all around and the city as a backdrop. Plenty of parking spaces around reserve but spaces can become scarce during peak times

    Lovely old Gothic revival church built in the 1860s. Features a historic organ. One of many great old churches in Melbourne

    I sat here during a Covid lockdown to eat a take away lunch. Plenty of seats and shade trees, but no tables. A few parents were here with toddlers, but schools were in lockdown and children studying at home.

    Lovely old building that’s worth checking out if you are nearby. Worth also catching a glimpse of the old town hall down the road.

    The building itself was built in High Gothic style in 1882 and started its life as a State School.

    Now home to the Bastow Institute

    Dating back to 1907 this church looks like it was destined for more work, but was left unfinished, with niches that might have been intended for statues. . It is suffering due to Covid lockdowns and services are proceding online.

    Nice shaded wedge of land stuck between 3 roads. Good spot to sit in the shade.
    Also a dog friendly area.

    TIP: limited parking at end of Leveson St (dead end street)
