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.

    Emily Falls, nice 2 hour round trip that includes a dip in the hole under mid sized waterfall. Is steep in places
    Wear proper boots and definitely take snacks for younger kids and water for all. Not suitable for under 8's unless sure-footed and confident. We did it on a rainy day, would be great on a warm day. Great fun for all family.

    Went in the evening, hoping to see bats emerging, and we were not disappointed. This small urban forest is well worth visiting. Lovely tracks, and great during the day as well. Seeing the tiny, endangered bats flitting above the trees at dusk was a fantastic experience.

    The four alpacas are adorable and friendly. We saw paradise chickens and walked in a beautiful environment!! When we reached the river it looked like heaven on earth. Bring a camera of some sort and insect repellent before you go. The sandflies will love you when you've dipped your feet in the river.
    I'm not sure If I have met nicer people. The couple who owns the place are angels! I RECOMMEND going there with family, friends or possibly alone if you want.

    This museum is located a few minutes' drive from the Geraldine CBD. It is located on a private property, and is the efforts of the property's owner, with help from some friends and relatives. The collection is clearly the result of the owner's love of all things mechanical. There are some lovely automobiles on show, both modern and vintage, some military vehicles and other weapons, some motorcycles, bicycles, a few tractors etc., plus various display cases covering some family military medals, model cars, military equipment such as jerry cans, shells and bombs etc. The owner was very hospitable. This museum deserves a visit from you if you are interested in any of the above subjects.

    A relaxing look around a spacious and well laid out shop with lots of interesting goods. As expected, largely for the tourist market and priced accordingly, but with a couple of good bargains included. Clean toilets and a care in the same building.

    What a great little place to visit and taste the fabulous Gin flavour's - Very knowledgeable and helpful staff - who was able to share the whole story and share the history of each of the different Gins which are all made here on site using as much NZ product as possible.

    Today we found a unique gallery exhibiting a range of exceptional works from all around nz . We were intrigued how Rachael had captured sound vibrations with gilding into her work . She also has an interactive exhibit you can try showing the patterns of sound when you strike her gong
    Don’t pass through Geraldine without visiting this gallery !

    An Army War Military Museum with a collection of military vehicles, exhibits, memorabilia, and weapons. It's interactive, you can touch items, even sit in some vehicles, and pretend to be in the trenches. It's good enough that even the ladies in our group were fascinated and spent a lot of time checking everything out. Absolutely, if you're near Geraldine, this is worth going to.
