Government House in the upscale Rockland area of Fairfield
As the Ceremonial Home of all British Columbians, Government House continues the long-standing tradition of honoring the contributions of our fellow British Columbians at this beautiful historic site. The House contains the Office of the Lieutenant Governor, the representative of Her Majesty The Queen of Canada, and offices of the administrative staff who support the duties and activities associated with the appointment.
As an official residence and the Province's center of hospitality, accommodation is afforded to visitors that can include members of the Royal Family, international royalty, ambassadors, members of the judiciary and other honored guests of British Columbia. Although the Lieutenant Governor continues to maintain a private residence while in office, Her Honor stays at Government House when carrying out official duties. When she is in residence at Government House, the Lieutenant Governor's personal standard can be seen flying from the flagpole.
Government House and its surroundings are an attractive and enduring reminder of our historic past, and a continuing symbol of allegiance to the Crown. Visit Government House

The Ross Bay Cemetery take the virtual tour! is Victoria's premier house of the dead, were many of the city's founding fathers and mothers and other illustrious clients took a permanent vacation. It is named after Charles Ross, one of the Hudson Bay Chief Factor in charge of Fort Victoria. Opened in 1873 and gradually expanded to 27 acres to meet the needs of every given harvesting season - the wealth of statuary and the sheer expanse should tempt anyone for a visit. If that alone is not enough, there are also more species of pine trees in the cemetery than anywhere else in Victoria. It is recommended that you pay your respects on the night of a full moon with a single robe and a wand of incense.
The tiniest park of all in Victoria is the Gonzales Hill Regional Park because the purpose of the park is to protect the Gonzales Observatory, which is now a Heritage building. Built in 1914 as an Astrophysical lookout point, it was adapted in the years to come to meet the expanding development of Victoria - The street lamps that this suburban growth brought with it acted as an astro-retardant, and the Observatory was turned into a meteorological station. Today, it is being used as an “atmospheric biogeochemistry research” facility funded by the University of Victoria. It is worth taking the hike up those stairs on Barkley Terrace just for the commanding hillcrest view, which panoramas Victoria.
