The nearby St. Mary’s River has attracted people to its shores for hundreds of years. The most popular reason is to fish its waters, as the river is an important spawning route for Atlantic salmon. Every summer, the salmon can be seen swimming and leaping through white water as they head upriver to spawn. There are popular fishing spots along the river but you can also hire a local guide to take you to specific pools along the river. The area around Sherbrooke is also heavily wooded and offers visitors opportunities to hike, bike and, in the winter, cross country ski and snowshoe.


Historic Sherbrooke Village – carefully preserved homes and businesses from the mid-19th century that are now a village-sized part of the Nova Scotia Museum – gives visitors from around the world the opportunity to experience life during the town’s heyday and literally walk through a vibrant time in the province’s history.

Eastern Zone: Cape Breton Island, Antigonish and Guysborough

Failte (that’s “welcome”, for those not up to speed on their Gaelic)! Nova Scotia’s Guysborough County and Cape Breton Island are the centre of Atlantic Canada’s Gaelic culture. Kitchen parties are a way of life here, and you’re never far from the Highlands that inspired the region’s first immigrants to name the province New Scotland. Here, the view of a lifetime lives around every corner, and the friendliest people live in every community. Hike, cycle, swim, golf – all in an almost unreal beauty.
