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.

    Amazing tram driver. It’s free!!! We were travelling in Melbourne on our mini vacation. It’s an incredible experience and free tram with young children is cherry on top

    Must-see market that covers acres of north Melbourne with busy, vibrant fish, meat, produce and general stores. Have fresh shucked oysters, admire the spring onions or simply saunter about

    Fantastic olde world feel, a great mix of boutique business here.
    You certainly WON'T FIND Kmart or Target here!
    This is a great spot for a special afternoon tea/coffee or that special occasion piece of bling
    Loved it

    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.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the City Watch House tour this morning. Our “Charge Sergeant” tour guide was fantastic. She was in character from the moment we began and set the perfect atmosphere. She was incredibly knowledgeable and informative.

    This was the second time I visited the museum - first time was about 10 years ago. I suggested to my family the visit. We all enjoyed interactive displays specifically with regards to changes of immigration policy in Australia and support to diversity and inclusion.
    The staff of the museum is very knowledgeable and friendly.
    Absolutely recommend visiting

    Popped into the Cathedral during a visit to Melbourne. What a beautiful building. Such amazing architecture within a very modern city. The interior is amazing, and we gatecrashed a wedding, so was extra special. No entrance fee, they just seek a donation, and have a very good gift shop. Great way to spend and hour or so just thinking, admiring and praying.

    This area was filled with small shops and restaurants that was only about a half mile from our hotel. It was very convenient to walk there to grab a quick bite or a cup of coffee. The vendors on DeGraves Street were very reasonably priced. We generally like to make an effort to support small businesses wherever we go.

    The Regent Theatre is in the center of the Melbourne. It's been renovated, so it's returned to the glory days of the between the wars period. The Regent often stages spectacular shows, such as Moulin Rouge. One of the better points about the Regent is that it is very easy to get to, in Collins St, near the corner of SWanston St.

    I stayed on Collins at the Intercontinental Rialto. It is a good street to wander for its architecture and the fancy shops.

    A icon in CBD, the historical train station keeps working now to provide the public transportation service to people. Good place to take some photos. Enjoy.

    We came to see Grease the stage show, fabulous show but the venue turned it from a good experience to a fantastic experience
    Super easy to access, well trained staff, accommodating and empathetic attitudes are very evident when dealing with those who have physical impairments
    Seating is well laid out, in good order and very comfortable
    General areas are super clean and in good repair.
    The building itself is a beautiful old building which is well maintained and adds to the "experience"
