North Sydney is more than a ferry terminal!

more...

North Sydney is located on the north side of the Sydney harbour. Originally, North Sydney was Canada's fourth largest port. The Western Union cable office was built in 1875, followed by a new railroad in 1891. At this time, North Sydney was larger in population than its founding city, Sydney. North Sydney would later become the terminal point for ferries both coming and going to and from Newfoundland. 1898 marked the first time the SS Bruce sailed to Newfoundland from Port Aux Basques.

North Sydney was a buffer zone for Canadian and American information during the World Wars, relaying coded messages overseas to allied soldiers from Ottawa and Washington. As a result of this, North Sydney civilians were the very first to know that WWI was won, after receiving a top-secret code on November 10, 1918 before anyone else.

North Sydney is home to many historical monuments and museums, including the Chapel Point, the Miner's Memorial Monument, various historical houses, the Prince of Wales Monument and a plethora of historical artefacts. Enjoy yachting, golfing, nightly entertainment, marine day cruises, and Gallop's Funland, which includes waterslides, batting cages, a driving rage and other activities. Don't forget the scenic drives of the Bras d'Or Lake shoreline and Shore Drive Rt.305.

North Sydney accommodations include bed and breakfasts, inns, motels and campgrounds.
