Walking around Chemainus to view the assortment of colourful wall murals is a delightful way to spend a few hours. The murals are very well-done and depict the town's history as a coastal logging/fishing community. While you are touring, you can stop in at some of the little shops, galleries and cafes that abound or treat yourself to an ice... More

As a visitor to Vancouver Island, my reaction to being told "see the murals in the township of Chemainus" was: Ho-Hum. How wrong was I? What a brilliant idea! How good are these murals? Believe me they are well worth a look. There are lots of them, and some are fantastic. About life, history, people - reflecting emotions, capturing the... More

We were here last year, it was time to return to see the art work displayed in Chemainus! Always have a good time following the yellow foot prints on the sidewalk, which take you to see the fantastic murals! We always enjoy coming to the Christmas store, however it was closed on Monday!

If you are on Vancouver island you need to check out Chemainus. The town has quaint shops, small park areas with sculptures and many murals. Very easy to spend an afternoon strolling around taking the whole experience in. Try the candy store for some special in store made chocolate, or have coffee on one of the many patios.

They are a wonderful addition to this small town. A must see. The area is very relaxing although it is busy when the farmers market is taking place on Thursdays. This is also something worth attending.
