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.

- We stumbled across this sculpture on the shores of Adventure Bay when we stopped to have a look at the beach.
The sculpture, which was unveiled in 2005, is by the late Matthew Carney who I have read was a local resident.
The sculpture depicts a sperm whale with its calf inside a world globe and seeks to acknowledge "the symbolic relationship that we have with other inhabitants of Earth".Written 5 March 2023

- Our map of Bruny Island highlighted in large letters "CAPTAIN COOK'S LANDING PLACE", and being very interested in history, we drove up the road looking for the site, and drove down the road looking for it, drove up the road and down the road again, and eventually sited the memorial to the tree. We found a place to park, and there was nothing there to acknowledge the site of the landing. There is no sign of the memorial that people photographed in July 2021 - why is this so????Written 25 May 2022
