“Lots of giggles!”
Visited the garden and thy enjoyed ourselves!! My family relies heavily on Trip Advisor and we agree this establishment deserves five stars. We saw all of the tropical birds including the flamingos; a bunch of tortoises; a giant iguana - and of course, the rock stars of the show - butterflies - and lots of them. The pendants made from butterfly wings were neat treasures to bring home! This hidden gem is a big win!

Welcome to Victoria Butterfly Gardens

Victoria Butterfly Gardens offers your only opportunity to experience the warmth, beauty and romance of a tropical jungle without going to the tropics. 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.

In our climate controlled environment (25 Celsius and 80% humidity), you will wander through a lush jungle of plants native to tropical rain forest environments. Stroll along the trails past organic vanilla beans growing on the vine, papaya trees, pineapple, coffee beans, ginger and many other foods of the world growing in our organic soil.

We are located just 5 minutes from the “world famous” Butchart Gardens. This 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.

Victoria Butterfly Gardens has been awarded the 2013 Certificate of Excellence from trip advisor and was the proud winner of Where Canada’s award for “Canada’s Best New or Improved Attraction” for 2012.”
