Inner Harbour

About This Point Of Interest

Victoria Inner Harbour

One of the most beautiful harbours in the world, the Victoria Inner Harbour has a long and varied history. Today, it is host to many waterfront attractions, including the unmistakable Parliament Buildings, the Empress Hotel (built in 1908), and the eclectic shops of Government Street. During the summer months visitors are treated to festivals and events, and mariners are welcome to take part in any of the many boating races that take place here. Christmas time is also a highlight when the buildings and boats of the Victoria Inner Harbour light up in a festive display of holiday spirit.
