Mill Bay Centre is a collection of shops ranging from pet store to clothing to dollar store to hair salon to library. The main stores are Thrifty Foods and Pharmasave.

The Kinsol Trestle is one of eight trestles along the Cowichan Valley Trail route and by far the largest and most spectacular. The Kinsol Trestle is one of the tallest free-standing and most spectacular timber rail trestle structures in the world. At 187 metres in length and standing 44 metres above the salmon bearing Koksilah River, the Kinsol is an incredible structure.

One of the best places to see the salmon run when it is happening. Some of the best hikes in the area as well as many waterfalls and quiet places to see. One your way to Victoria.
