Many urban centers call themselves "Garden City," but thanks to its many manicured parks filled with native and exotic plants, Victoria probably deserves than moniker more than most.
Attractions like Royal BC Museum and French Beach Provincial Park make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with a short trip to East Sooke Regional Park in Sooke (about 46 minutes away). Next up on the itinerary: appreciate the extensive heritage of Inner Harbour, admire the natural beauty at Victoria Butterfly Gardens, walk around Beacon Hill Park, and hike along West Coast Trail.

Toowoomba, Australia to Victoria is an approximately 26-hour combination of flight and car. The time zone changes from Australian Eastern Standard Time (Queensland) to Pacific Standard Time, which is usually a -18 hour difference. Traveling from Toowoomba in June, plan for somewhat warmer nights in Victoria, with lows around 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
