Chemainus

Once a town that relied solely on its sawmills, Chemainus has broken free of its dependence on the logging industry and become "The Little Town that Did!" Chemainus has become Canada’s largest outdoor gallery with its gorgeous life-sized murals. All professionally painted on the sides of downtown buildings, the murals reflect the history, people, and most emphatically, the pride of the small town. Chemainus now boasts over 30 of these murals that have given the town its charm. 

Visit the free Chemainus museum and spend the afternoon engulfed in the town's history, or shop 'til you drop in over 100 antique dealers residing in the quaint seaside town. End the perfect day with a dinner and a show at Chemainus's theater, open year round. 

Found on Highway 1, Chemainus is 70 km (44 mi.) north of Victoria. BC Ferries travels from Tsawwassen ferry terminal in Vancouver to Swartz Bay in Victoria, while commercial airlines fly into Cassidy Airport just outside of Nanaimo 25 km (15.5 mi.) north of Chemainus. Population: 4,000
