Hidden Gem 1 – Click for Map

Although Victoria is a small place, it`s easy to live in one locale and not know about hidden gems located elsewhere. We`ve found some of our favourite parks by wandering around neighbourhoods we`ve never been to before and by tagging along with friends in their hood.

In Hidden Gems, we`ll give you directions to little places in Victoria that you might not otherwise know about. First up is the little row of shops on Foul Bay Rd. A cute delicatessen with freshly baked bread, Buttons and Bows – a little fabric shop and Cafe Misto a cafe with a breastfeeding sticker in its window!!!! are all at the top of Foul Bay as you head up towards Camosun Landsdowne campus. Nearby is the Carnavon Park waterpark, our absolute favourite playground – you can read more about that little gem here!
