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.

    If you are driving south In the Huon Valley, about 20 minutes south of Huonville, make sure you turn off the highway and take a walk through the old timber industry town of Geeveston. From the Information Centre full of memorabilia from the 19th century till today about the town, to the unique life sized wooden sculptures of locals from the town’s past, it is well worth the time to spend an hour or so soaking in what the town has to tell.

    This unusual sculpture of Corten steel represents the footprint of the 500 years old swamp gum that was destroyed by bushfires in 2019. There are cut-outs of quotes to reflect the community experience of bushfires. The Arve Big Tree stood at 87m in height and was one of a few accessible giant trees and is listed on the Tasmanian Giant Tree Register. The sign advises that an app, ‘Arve Big Tree’ recreates the tree in augmented reality; I’ll have to update my smartphone.

    This was an interesting memorial but sadly run down with some signs not readable. The wooden sculptures were good and the old swamp gum massive and a good idea but needs more attention.

    The memorial commemorates those killed in accidents while working in Tasmania's forests. Its located near Platypus Walk, a stylised tree stump surrounded by trees in varying stages of maturity. I counted 47 tribute plaques on the memorial. There is a boulder nearby with plaques to Peter Bennett and Dr Richard Geeves and the Memorial plaque. It was dedicated in November 2009.

    The Cenotaph commemorates service personnel who died in WW1 and WW11. The monument is of a soldier with rifle reversed standing on a base of polished black granite. The statue of the soldier was sculpted in Italy using Sicilian marble. It commemorates soldiers from Geeveston, Liverpool and Surges Bay wards of the Esperance municipality and was dedicated on ANZAC Day 1923. The memorial is inscribed and a couple of other plaques are affixed.
