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.

    It is a great place to get exercise, all while been within the picturesque Dandenong Ranges surrounded by Ferns, Gum Trees, and other Plants/Trees while hiking to the top of One Tree Hill which is a good place for a picnic, and its nice to enjoy the serenity of being within Nature while going for a hike. Also you can check out all the plaques and Boards along the way about all the solders who fought for our country, so I recommend checking the place out.

    This is another park that has changed a lot since I was younger and playing on it myself, the playground is safe and has lots of variety for the kids to play on and the park its self has plenty of spots to sit down and watch the birds or have a picnic on a nice sunny day.

    Koolamara Waters is an amazing local gem rich with native flora, abundant water birds and large wetland systems.

    It is an easy walk taking in some changing flora and views across to Lysterfield hills and green belt. Depending on the time of day and season, amazing sunsets and sunrises are natural beauties of this area.

    A friend & I visited today to follow the walking trails. We walked along the Army Track to North Boundary Track. There are some steep hills so you need to be reasonably fit. We found the signage quite poor in parts & we would encourage the Parks Victoria staff to review these. Lovely bushy area away from traffic & with great views from the high points.

    THis place was closed down a while ago much to my disgust due to everyone using their mobiles for info. The government department responsible for this awesome info centre decided to close it without a thought to who actually uses it. The staff who manned this information centre were volunteers who did a great job for tourism in this area.
    So you need to take this down (sadly) from your site

    Hidden away in a industrial park, Little Brew is a unique brewery, with unique beers and pizzas! Great atmosphere, excellent, knowledgeable service. HIGHLY recommended

    I came here for some tree planting and was mesmerised by its wild beauty. I heard kookaburras laughing on the tall trees on a fine spring day. Conservation is definitely needed as there are some wild animal species that live there, like the Powerful Owl and Sugar Gliders. It is important for pet owners to control their dogs/cats so that other species can also thrive. Pets are increasingly being blamed for endagering the life of native wildlife.

    This playground has definitely changed since i was a kid, the park is nice with plenty of variety for the kids to use and have a good time, if you have young kids that are full of energy its a good place to stop at if you're passing by.

    I have seen many shows at the 1812 Theatre and the attention to detail is terrific. Tha cast are always well rehearsed and the shows are well worth the trip.

    We've had kids' birthday parties at Wally Tew which has barbecues near the playground and tables undercover in the playground which allows parents to keep an eye on the kids.
    Plenty of parking.
