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.

Well maintained monument in a beautiful park. Across the road from the main shopping area.
Obviously the locals take great pride in this important remembrance

Really simple and well done - constructed at the top of the green space park leading down to the little beach and the waters edge. Really peaceful and lovely to sit in the space and reflect.

Finally my children are realizing what the monuments are about. Walk through to see the beautiful park next to the water with a children's play area with a ship and water jets for the little ones to run in and out of. Check out the mini golf which is towards the port.

A fitting tribute to those men who gave their life for a better future for others. Some may say it’s in a strange location but considering ships sailed out of this port, I believe that the organisation got it right.
A beautiful backdrop that softens what to many is a somber memorial. “Lest we forget”

New Zealander’s of all colours and creed are remembered so respectfully and with such reverence. This war memorial is impressive and takes pride of place overlooking the bay.

This simple but unusual war memorial is located right on the waterfront in downtown Picton. Spend a couple of thoughtful minutes here - worth the visit.
