Victoria Butterfly Gardens, in Greater Victoria on Vancouver Island, offers a unique opportunity to experience the warmth, beauty and romance of a tropical rainforest. In the climate-controlled environment (25 Degrees Celsius and 80% humidity), you will wander through a lush jungle of plants native to tropical rain forest environments.
Thousands of exotic, tropical butterflies (up to 70 species) fly free through our large facilities, the size of almost 3 basketball courts, as you meander along the trails, passed organic vanilla beans growing on the vine, papaya trees, pineapple, coffee beans, ginger and many other foods of the world growing in the organic soil. Witness the entire life cycle of these amazing butterflies.
Stroll through this indoor tropical wonderland, where Caribbean flamingos walk through the streams and ponds among the beautifully coloured koi, goldfish, jack dempseys, albino oscars, tetras, barbs, jaguar cichlids, plecos, Australian whistling tree ducks and red-eared slider turtles.
The carefully planned combination of trees, bushes, vines and creepers is a balanced jungle-like eco-system that flourishes without the use of herbicides and pesticides. Stroll through and marvel at our lush gardens including tropical flowers, carnivorous plants and fruits of the world. Wander in our newest Exhibit, the Insectarium, full of impressive insects and invertebrates from around the world. Your jungle adventure awaits. This a photographer’s paradise, and a truly memorable experience for the entire family.
