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.

    Until we saw the road signs on our way to Penguin, we had never heard of Leven Canyon. My wife was brought up in a small village in Yorkshire called Leven so we felt that we should visit the Canyon while in the area. It was well worth the visit. We did the circular walk in the anti-clockwise direction, so that we went down the 700 steps. Initially, I was worried that my arthritic knees would not cope with the steps, but they were evenly spaced and easy to walk down. The views from the lookouts were magnificent, as they were on the route in and out. We spotted 4 echidna as we journeyed to the Canyon.

    This antique shop sells just about anything you might be looking for including having a fernery on the side.
    If not looking for anything it is worth a visit just to wander around this amazing store, anything from rulers, bone china (a huge collection), glass, silver, tools, pottery, artwork, toys, crystal glassware, books, records, jewellery, craft goods, sheet music, retro hats, scarves, ties, gloves, handbags, whatever you might be looking for this store will have it and you can bet it will be more interesting than anything you'll find in any modern store today.

    72 steps down to a loose gravel track. Worth the walk. Approx 15 mins to get to falls lookout. The creek flowing upstream is prtty to look at too. A bit of water over the falls in May. Worh a look. peacefull spot. A bit out of way but interesting area to drive the country roads for lovely scenery.

    Exceptional art gallery / museum / interactive science centre. Best $3 I have ever spent - pity the planetarium was closed on the public holiday!

    This magnificent memorial stands in the roundabout at the intersection of Reibey St, Risby St, and Alexandra Road, the highest point in Ulverstone. It was built by migrant labour in 1953 and straddles the original Cenotaph which was dedicated in 1924.
    The base rerpresents the blue sea and is the outline of Tasmania. The three columns rising above the base represent the armed services of the army, navy and air force with three chains uniting them. A four-faced clock is mounted on top of the pillars and the Torch of Remembrance is at the apex.

    Obviously the park commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved. It's a really wonderful space.

    There is a walk along the edge of the Leven River to enjoy, a children's play area, parking, toilets, BBQs . The River Leven was was named by the Van Diemen's Land Company after the River Leven in Scotland.

    The park is a wonderful place to stretch your legs after a long walk... or to let the children run free... the playground is amazing... I really wanted to be 7 again... and in my head I was... however, I resisted going down that huge slide. After all... it had been raining and I could get wet... Yes, Yes, that's what I am trying to convince myself as well... that there was a simple reason I didn't go down it. Truth is... somewhere along the line I aged and now I know the risks of someone my age going down a slide squealing like a 7 year old.

    We didn’t have time to do a brewery tour but sampled some of the excellent beers on tap and enjoyed some very tasty chips coated in crunchy sea salt with aioli dip.

    Had several visits over the last couple of weeks now that visiting the Parks and Reserves is allowed. There are several interesting spots for viewing Seastars, anemones, shells and birds.

    Located at the bottom of Upper Maude Street, the hardens are a spectacular display of native plants when in bloom, the view over Ulverstone town centre and the coast quite spectacular.

    It is a steep walk back up: well used pathway by locals all willing to stop and have a hat. It is understood the gardens are maintained by residents living adjacent to them: a clear work of love, a great effort and a excellent feature to Ulverstone.

    These three rocky granite islands sit 500 metres off the Tasmania coast between Ulverston and Penguin and together with the nearby Goat Island comprise the Three Sisters-Goat Island Coastal Reserve and one of the prettier areas along the coast.

    The memorial is near the Clocktower and is a mural commemorating the 100th anniversary of the raising of the Tasmanian Light Horse at Ulverstone in 1899. The mural depicts two mounted horsemen looking at three approaching tanks. The memorial was dedicated in 1998.
