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.

    Great walking tracks and the tunnel itself is really interesting (especially since I did not have a torch) Also a number of interesting spots for a nice picnic

    Truby King Gardens nestled up in the hills of Melrose was once the residence of Dr. Truby King the founder of the Plunket Charity for babies.

    Literally, once upon a time, every baby, including me, would receive a Plunket booklet, with your name on it, wight, health details etc.

    You cannot actually go inside the building, unless there is an open day, however you can visit the monument, take in the views, and traverse the garden. The garden trail is mixed pathed and there was, once upon a time, miniature sculptures present, although for the life of me I couldn't locate them this time.

    The gardens look a little tardy and could do with a little bit of TLC. They are a reminder, as is the building, that you can walk around, off a time gone bye. Truby King Gardens is on the Southern Walkway and could be included in something more ambitious by taking that trail.

    This sculpture trail has really become rather a sideshow, even though infrastructure, such as the cycle lane and walking trail have been developed the sculptures look old and dated. Nothing new has been developed in recent times. Not even the convoluted artists statements can even lift these works to another level.
    The sculptures feel like a sideshow to the cycle lane, or walking trail that you might use on your way to get your photograph taken in front of the popular Wellington sign by the Miramar cutting.
    You might only stop at the sculptures to use the seating to take in the view of the harbor. Remember, without the wind the sculptures remain static. So, if you are there for them choose your day carefully.
    Not even the Zephyrometer sculpture, which once had the temerity to move around a bit more than it does today, and managed to touch the road, to the surprise of the motorist, with a strong gust, did excite.
    The sculptures are more a curiosity to a time when Meridan Energy had an interest in the arts, and then gave up.
