The vibrant town of Ladysmith is located at the northern end of the Cowichan region just south of Nanaimo. Best known for the Ladysmith Festival of Lights, Ladysmith is located in a stunning setting as these aerial photographs show. Ladysmith Harbour is a beehive of activity with many marinas and of course the logging and fishing industries well represented. The town itself is dotted with beautiful old buildings, many of which have been restored. Ladysmith looks great from the air and is just as charming from land.
