Arrowsmith Coombs Country includes the rural Vancouver Island communities of Coombs, Errington, Hilliers, and Whiskey Creek.

Arrowsmith Coombs Country is also home to the region's two waterfall BC Provincial Parks, Englishman River Falls and Little Qualicum River Falls, and unique attractions such as Butterfly World and Gardens, World Parrot Refuge, and the North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre.

Discover all this plus shopping possibilities, attractions, and amenities of these communities by searching our business directory.

Coombs is a mini day holiday... look through the eclectic shops and then hit the market... buy tiny jars of jams -- fresh bread-- a couple bits of cheese ... and something exotic you have never had before!... then have a tail gate picnic ... what a fantastic place!

When in Coombs, make sure you cross over the Coombs bridge!! There are more shops on the other side of the bridge. I absolutely LOVE Coombs!
