Star nomination[edit]

While I have wrote little about this article (User:KevRobbSCO did most of the work), the article looks great to me. This article is probably one of the most detailed articles, and it's essentially complete and there's no need to consult anyone; it's all here.

  • Not yet - Certainly an excellent and well-developed article that deserves to be a Guide, but there are also a lot of things that need fixing before it could be considered perfect. The lede is too short, as is 'Understand' (there has to be more to stay about the history, not to mention the current character of the town and layout, than what's already there). In 'Do', putting "see website for details" is not good enough for Star level; our article needs to suggest places to watch birds, to fish, to hike etc. For 'Eat' and 'Drink' listings, there are no descriptions, and there's no indication of price. The latter is also an issue for 'Sleep' - no room rates. None of the three hospitality sections are arranged in the usual way (budget, mid-range, and splurge), which granted may not be appropriate for a small town in Australia, but why not? The 'Connect' section is empty - the phone boxes (which I think is a great idea to list in places with patchy mobile signal) should be there, not in 'Cope', as should any information about where travellers can get online (library, internet café, WiFi hotspot?). In multiple sections, there are lots of listings without lat and long co-ordinates. Finally, while there's nothing wrong with the writing from a practical standpoint, the overall WV:Tone of the article is not "conversational, informal, and lively". --ThunderingTyphoons!

Update: I moved the phone boxes myself in less a minute, which I should have done originally instead of nitpicking.--ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 15:44, 1 May 2021 (UTC)
  • Needs improvement - It's a pretty good article as it stands, but there's some improvements that need to be made. I agree mainly with ThunderingTyphoons: all listings should have geocoordinates, price and room rates should be listed, and "see website for details" should be substituted with suggestions. Also, the listings should be in alphabetical order. But aside from that? The images are good and there's clearly been a lot of work in this article. I think it definitely has star potential if not quite at that level yet. --LivelyRatification (talk) 00:29, 3 May 2021 (UTC)
