What a treat to find this place on a sunny afternoon in late October! An excellent example of working with the existing natural (rock) features, and a bird paradise.
In an area of many beautiful gardens, the famed Butchart layout at the top of the list, this tiny area filled with gorgeous specimens and lovely landscaping can be seen in a short time, although you may wish to linger. They have managed, with hills and winding paths, to include a great many scenic spots, and wandering through is time... More
Our almost four year old Grandson loves having Tea at the Teahouse in Abkhazi Garden located in Victoria; minutes away from Oak Bay Village. As we walk through the quiet, cool treed entrance to Abkhazi our Grandson seems to sense the importance and the feeling of the history, mystery and love story of the Garden. The story begins in 1920... More
We enjoyed wandering through the garden. We were told that it is maintained by volunteers and it is pretty impressive. October is probably not the best month to see it but we liked it very much.
Though the gardens are in just a regular neighborhood, off the normal tourist areas, we were so glad we took the effort to go!

Tea service at Abkhazi Garden should be on your list of afternoon tea venues in Victoria! Not only do you get a quality selection of tea pastries at less than half the price of the Empress Hotel, but you can enjoy the beauty of a garden residence built by a Russian princess with ties to China. Thanks to the Land... More
The garden is stunning with many walks. Since there is a strong Asian influence there are "rooms" to enjoy. There are lessons and new experiences at every turn. The docents teach within casual conversation. They explain the history as well as the volunteer effort to maintain this treasure in a Victoria neighborhood. The gift shop and tea room are lovely.
My wife and I loved our recent visit to this Victoria garden, which I have wanted to visit for many years. It is a beautifully crafted little oasis, manned with a few very helpful volunteers. It cost $9 each to enter and the fee collection was engagingly haphazard. Next time we go, we'll make use of the extremely attractive little... More
Hello readers, Another wonderful day in this city of gardens. Today, my beautiful daughter and I took a change of pace and decided to go for some relaxation by taking a stroll through a pretty "Secret Garden". What a better way to enjoy the fine warm weather than to walk through some lovely scenery of a variety of plants, shrubs,... More
You may compare this small, compact mosaic garden to Butchard. This garden is being maintained maily by nature, not by human. As a bird watcher, I found a lot of beautiful birds including hummingbirds on the picture below. (no bird in Butchard) If you are lucky enough, you will meed a very kind, professional and well prepared interpreter (woman). It... More
