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.

The array of old coins and various gold nuggets piqued their curiosity and offered a hands-on history lesson.

    I attended the Mint on business on this occasion and was assisted with very professional service, cashing in some Commerative Coins

    Really good views of the surrounding areas. Get the "timing right" to see things in action. Go to the top via the lift and walk back down.

    Loved this museum! Loads to see/do/read about and the volunteers were great - friendly chatty and knowledgeable- they really knew their stuff and were eager to share. One of the volunteers from Tasmania originally - so sorry can’t remember his name - spent a lot of quality time with us (we were there on a quiet day) but all were lovely- real ambassadors for the Fire Service.
    We are an older couple and really enjoyed it but I would have to say that it would be a fabulous place to take children - great sections for them and the chance to play on a Fire Engine - what could be better! Many enjoyable learning experiences to be had.
    All this for free. Highly recommend.

    When you see the sign "Oldest Building in Perth" you will be interested to go in and take a look. The museum tells a story about Perth and the legal system so it is very much worth a visit.

    The State Buildings were Treasury, Lands and Titles, they were the administrative heart of Western Australia's government. The buildings are built of red brick and stucco, as with most colonial era public buildings. The State buildings are on the corner of St George's Terrace and Barrack Street, in the center of the State's capital. After many years of neglect, the State Buildings are once again the heart of Perth.

    Thde Queen's Tree was planted by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on 27 March 1954. It was her first official trip to Australia. King's Park has many monuments. This tree is a River Red Gum, it is found all over Australia. The tree can live from 500 to 1,000 years. It is known for its durable, red-hued timber. In summer, its spreading branches provides shade and bees forage for nectar amongst its flowers. The River Red Gum is surely a symbol of longevity.

    Fantastic that this building escaped the demolisher's hammer and has been largely preserved albeit as various commercial ventures. Originally a secondary school dating to 1858 under the direction of Bishop Mathew Hale, the bishop is immortalised in a sculpture standing at the main entrance and with his right arm outstretched in welcome.

    St Mary's Anglican Church is a landmark in South Perth. St Mary's, which is in Ridge Street, is best known for its tall sculpture of Jesus Christ, which can be seen from just about anywhere in the City of Perth.
