You can see beautiful gardens around this build during the day and a shape of lights in the night, If you are in Victoria you cannot miss this place.

One of the most beautiful cities in the world! Filled with flowers during the day and in the evening the lights of the legislature are brilliant.

We walked past after a long trek from the cruise ship terminal; at night, the lights off the buildings provide a warm and gorgeous glow on the waterfront. Absolutely beautiful and romantic - a must-see when in Victoria.

Victoria's inner harbour is active during the day, and has a bustling tourist industry during the day time. At night it settles down and is a very peaceful and beautiful place to walk or relax.

There is nothing quite like this Inner Harbour with its working Marina and assortment of yachts, power boats and ferries plying back and forth, all within a stone’s throw of the Empress, Parliament Buildings and the city centre!
