Members here always have great suggestions, so I'm asking where do you suggest is worth visiting in British Columbia ?

To get things started...

Victoria - Butchart Gardens, royal museum,
Whistler
Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands)
Parks - Glacier, Yoho, Kootenay
Okanagan Valley - Kelowna, wineries
Tofino/Ucluelet - Pacific Rim park
Meares Island - Freedom Cove
Revelstoke - The Enchanted Forest (for kids)
Pemberton - Joffre Lakes
Sunshine Coast - Sechelt
Lussier Hot Springs (Whiteswan Lake Provincial Park)
Port Renfrew
Salt Spring Island
Osoyoos
Nimmo Bay
Cranbrook
Muskwa-Kechika
Stratchcona park - Della Falls (Canada's tallest waterfall)
Botanical Beach - Juan de Fuca park

Well, you've scratched the surface. Here are a few more:

Wells Gray Provincial Park (waterfalls)
Prince Rupert & Highway 16 leading to it
Cariboo-Chilcotin Region (Gold Rush history, cowboy country)
Barkerville (more Gold Rush history)

We may be visiting Kelowna in September. Does Kelowna have mountainous scenery? We like taking walks with mountain views. Photos I've seen of Kelowna seem to show hills, rather than mountains.

You are right, the terrain there is more hilly, than mountainous. However, the Okanagan area is known as lake country so there are gorgeous vistas with lakes in the foreground and the hills as the backdrop.
The area also has many very good wineries.

If you want stunning mountain scenery then Vancouver or Whistler will give you that, or pretty much anywhere on the coast really.
