Lillooet Travel Guide
Welcome to Lillooet, BC!
Lillooet, originally called Cayoosh Flat, was re-named for the Lil'wat First Nations people native to the territory. Located in the Fraser Canyon of British Columbia at the junction of Highway 12 and 99, the Sea to Sky Highway, this locale has a dry and sunny climate. A region rich with history, Lillooet was a major centre in the Gold Rush of 1858-1860. Visitors can trace notable moments at the Lillooet Museum & Visitor Centre, the memorial of Mile '0' marking the Caribou Road used during gold rush times and the Miyazaki House, a local heritage site. A source of jade is found in this terrain and Jade Park showcases sculptures created from this semi-precious stone and its historical significance to the Lillooet area. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the scenery and wildlife, hiking along trails and gardens such as Marble Canyon and Cornwall Hills Provincial Park. Lillooet embraces a sense of history and natural beauty that helps welcomes visitors to this unique town.
The Lillooet Museum records the past of a region where ranchers, gold miners, a railway, First Nations and the RCMP have all made their mark.
