The Outdoor Patio

Outdoor Patio & Picnic Area

As a result of the lush, natural environment on Vancouver Island, Butterfly World is often visited by wild hummingbirds. During your time at our gorgeous indoor butterfly and garden reserve, bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on the outdoor Outdoor Patio, and you too may be graced with a visit from nature's little flying jewels.

Wild Hummingbirds are favoured, frequent visitors (just like you!) to Butterfly World lured by the scent of our gorgeous indoor Orchid Gardens, Tropical Gardens and other compatible wildlife. Although Butterfly World cannot not guarantee that you will be able to experience a visit from the local wild hummingbird population we do encourage visits from these tiny wild wonders though so chances are good that you may encounter one (or 10!) zipping around the grounds during your time with us.

Didn't get to see a hummingbird during your visit?

That's ok, just visit us again and they may be there next time! Butterfly World has beautiful tropical butterfly gardens, turtle filled ponds and many other wonderful features that are worth a repeat visit!

Gift Shop

We know you will really enjoy your visit to this exceptional display of harmony in nature, where tropical butterflies and finches fly freely throughout the gardens of tropical plants, shrubs and trees, watched over by our collection of turtles and frogs.


After completing your butterfly safari we invite you to browse our theme gift shop where you will find a fabulous selection of items for all age groups, including butterfly jewelry, t-shirts, books, coffee mugs and puzzles..
