Victoria Butterfly Gardens
We can't say enough about this place. Fantastic, especially in winter, as it's a nice little getaway from the rain and grey skies. Tropical plants, flamingos, and hundreds of butterflies, what more could one ask for?
Love nature? Step into the butterfly gardens and get transported to a tropical jungle full of colour and life. Butterflies flutter around your head while turtles and flamingos laze in the river. Want to see a poison dart frog up close? No problem, there is a display for that. Want to bring a creepy…
Close to Butchart Gardens this is a great trip for all the family. They have clouds of butterflies.
“The Greatest Little Show on Earth! Miniature-themed dioramas & displays representing historical times & fictional worlds. The review below nails this experience! "I went to Miniature World for the first time awhile back, and I was blown away. At first when I heard about it, I thought it would be a place that wasn’t super interesting or entertaining, but I was very wrong. All the displays and so intricate and intriguing, down to the finest detail. I love the displays that are interactive and move, it really adds to the whole exhibit. If you’re visiting Victoria and you’re looking for a fun, indoor tourist attraction, I would highly recommend checking out this place. I’ve only been once and I want to go back! It’s money very well spent!" - Jared, Local Guide”
“This has had a number of names over the years but it's a great place to take the kids or just go and see the local sea life. 3.6km or a 7 minute drive away. Next to the Victoria Distillery.”
“Family-friendly mini-zoo offering a collection of live tropical insects from around the world.”
