At the turn of the 19th century, Robert Pim Butchart was drawn to an area 23 km north of Victoria that was flush with the limestone he needed for the manufacture of cement. When the mine became exhausted years later, his wife Jennie Butchart transformed the bleak pit of the abandoned quarry into the spectacular Sunken Garden, to be followed by the Japanese Garden, the Italian Garden, and many more.
