Visiting Victoria, we took a day trip on Sunday to visit the Saanich area, and the kiddoes definitely wanted to stop here, more so than Butchart Gardens(less walking, cuter bugs).
It isn't cheap but they offer a family discount. It's a combo small botanical gardens, butterfly paradise, and fishpond/flamingo hangout. The staff are very informative, and there are a ton butterflies. They show them in different stages of growth. Very colorful, great pictures and my wife and children just spent a ton of time here.
Good size gift shop(hard to get the kids out), restaurant across the road which we didn't try, and it's on the way to the Gardens- easy to find.
