Some people just get a kick out of leaving Google reviews, even on the rivers that run through our cities.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but every Australian city (bar Darwin) is located on a river. Rivers tend to be a life source for its city and a focal point of sorts. They’re great for long, chilled-out walks, views of sunset, grabbing drinks and a feed too. No matter in which city, they tend to attract a whole lot of attention. Even opinions about them. Some of these are just strange or outright funny. And you wonder what it was that made this person want to share that with Google and the rest of the world.
Well, whatever their motivation, here’s our pick of some of the best and/or funniest Google reviews of our rivers.
