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.

    A lot of parking, easy to park trailer. Clean toilets and bbq. Various walks available. Dam very close to parking a mini downhill. We followed the platypus walk hoping to see them. We saw bubbles on the surface but sadly didn't come across them. Easy walk 1.3km, 20 minutes.

    Absolutely love the variety at these markets. You can buy almost anything from local honey to new or used shoes and garb. Gourmet food or quick take out. And the best of all, kids are also entertained. Check out Faces of Fairy, beyond face painting. My kids thing Miss Fairy is magical.

    Informative slide slow and commentary and tour around the sanctuary. Can see koalas up close. Run by volunteers and the tours are a way to provide more awareness of the plight of the koalas and some additional funding by way of a donation. Well worth your support.

    Dropped by to get a book and a postcard of the area. It’s quite a good shop and the counter staff were helpful.

    Following the disastrous floods that inundated the Northern Rivers region, the Lismore Regional Art Gallery is in a process of recovery. The intricate Hannah Cabinet, which is estimated to be worth more than $1 million, is in a process of restoration. Many art works, including those created before 1800, cannot be valued, as they are usually held in public collections and are rarely traded. The people in the Northern Rivers region are rallying behind the Gallery, as it recovers from this unprecedented natural disaster.

    I don't know if all stall holders are always truthful about where their produce comes from, however the stall at these markets where I get my fruit and veg from is. Vicki even allows me to go out to her place and see the veggies and pick straight from her garden. Thus is convenient when I have to come to town on days when the market is not on.

    Great pool complex with 50m and 25m heated pools + a toddlers pool inside it's own safety fence.

    There are giant inflatables at the end of the big pool on the weekends - the obstacle course is tons of fun for both kids and adults! Have just been to a family fun day there (to raise money for MS) and now they've also got a Zorb ball and tube. The tube seemed to be more popular because 2 or 3 people can get into it at the one time.

    Staff are usually excellent and the facilities are great. Plenty of chairs, tables, benches and shade. There are a bunch of lockers if you have any valuables but, generally, I think things are very safe.

    They've got a chilled water fountain where you can refill your drink bottles. Canteen has plenty of snacks both hot and cold.

    Believe it or not this church is a B&B. Used to be a B&B but after churches were amalgamated they added 3 bedrooms at the rear and bathroom and ensuite on main bedder.. This place was immaculate the rooms lovely and cosy. Kitchen had everything needed and also they supplied a reasonable amount of requirements.
    Air conditioned and fans in all rooms, heated bathroom floors, games and tvs in all rooms.
