Stumbled upon this site by fluke while out for a drive after dinner. The plaque had very interesting information about the burl. Who knew this was a thing?!

If you find yourself in the Northern parts of Vancouver Island (we stayed in Telegraph Cove), this is a fun little detour. Yes, the world's largest burl is pretty big :).

Noticed the burl attraction sign and stopped to check it out. It's huge enough to impress even those ignorant of burls. I was thankful for the plague which explained what a burl was.

This HUGE burl is really cool, but we can't figure out why they hid it in a parking lot?
It should be moved near the waterfront or harbour area.
It's hard to get a good picture that shows the true scale of it's size, so I had Colleen sit beside it. Check this out if you're in town.

Not exactly exciting. Do not go out of your way to see this. Located in what appears to be a forgotten parking lot, it would be very easy to drive by...and not even notice it.
