Overview

Highlights

  • Walk through an exotic complex the size of nearly three basketball courts, and meet tons of animals
  • Admire the colours and markings of the park's many butterfly species, and see Amazonian amphibians
  • Step inside the microscopic world of the Insectarium and see a fully functioning leafcutter ant colony

Description

It's easy to forget you're in Canada and not the rain forest. Birds you'd expect to see in the jungle fly overhead, iguanas hug tree branches, and neon-coloured poison dart frogs stand out against the bushes.

In Victoria Butterfly Gardens, you'll find streams full of tropical fish, crashing waterfalls, and singing macaws. It's a perfect respite from the city, full of serenity and nature – as well as being the perfect place to take some interesting photos!

I have visited many times and it is always a wonderful experience. I recommend wearing a bright color and the butterflies may land on you.
