No, seriously.. They've been doing a somewhat acceptable job maintaining Wharf recently; which makes us Victorians more likely to share a glimpse of our Bentley's, Ferarri's, Lambo's and the like as we access our vessels in the inner harbor. Thanks.

Great street for a casual stroll along the Inner Harbour, lot's to see and do! Take in some great sites & sounds of this area! If you have time enjoy some tasty meals at some of the local restaurants. This street will also take you towards Bastion Square, which is another great location.

Wharf Street pretty much gets you everywhere. East on Wharf Street take you to Store Street with lots pf shops and China Town. West on Wharf takes you long the waterfront to afternoon tea at the Empress or tour of the Parliament Buildings.

Nice place to walk along with some restaurants and shops. Part of any Victoria walking tour, offers great views of the Inner Harbour.

Visited Victoria in July 2015. Older buildings along the waterfront. Many shops and restaurants along wharf street. Walked along one evening and it wasn't very crowded either.

For the Christmas season, Wharf Street is worth the walk, drive or horse carriage ride to enjoy the Xmas lights and the harbour. Parking is tricky in front of the Empress Hotel so best to find a side street to park and walk. Or better yet, stay at a hotel close to downtown. Watch the seaplanes, U.S. ferry, lots of... More

We stayed at the Victoria Regent on Wharf Street. There's lots to see on the Harbor with float planes and ferries coming and going, good pubs and restaurants and it's just a stones throw from all the great shops on Government St. Victoria is great for ambling.

This is one of the main streets that connecst the Inner Harbour to the Johnson Street bridge. It has some great restaurants plus the view of the harbour is amazing! Take a stroll along this street, which will connect you to may other great locations within the city!
