Explore Miramichi's lustrous shipbuilding past with a visit to the Beaubears Island Interpretive Centre. Complete your cultural experience with a boat trip to Beaubears Island and Wilson's Point where you're sure to meet some of Miramichi's most famous characters.
Submerse yourself in a nature-lovers paradise as you walk the trail through lush wilderness and marshland. Dip your toes in the Miramichi River before beginning your relaxing trek back to civilization.
French Fort Cove
Lose yourself (not literally, of course) in the depths of French Fort Cove. Hike or bike the vast system of trails and discover the beauty all around you. As you venture deeper into the Cove, you'll be surrounded by the old stones of Fish Quarry, natural landmarks dotting our industrial past.
Historic Water Street
Business meets pleasure in Chatham's Historic Business District. Eat, shop, and relax in a unique downtown atmosphere where you can rub shoulders with locals and become a Miramichier for a day. Drop by our Welcome Centre where we'll be happy to help you discover what we know.
Miramichi plays host each July to Canada's Irish Festival, and you can't get much more Irish than feasting on corned beef and cabbage at Captain's Galley Restaurant at Middle Island Irish Historical Park. Celebrate our Irish heritage (and yours too, perhaps) with a visit to one of Miramichi's most popular attractions.
One of Miramichi's best kept secrets is Morrison Cove. Morrison Cove is like the 'cult movie' of scenic trails and picturesque beauty in Miramichi. Those who know of it, love it; those who don't, need to discover it. Make your way along trails to the former Chatham reservoir whose remote tranquility is the icing on the cake of a great day of hiking.
Just a hop, skip, and a jump from Town Square, Ritchie Wharf is a staple in summer entertainment. Home to Miramichi's largest playground and splash pad, Ritchie Wharf offers fun for the whole family. Unique shops and eateries line the boardwalk, live music fills the air, and boat tour operators provide one-of-a-kind river experiences.
St. Andrew's Point
Nestled along the southern bank of the Miramichi River, St. Andrew's Point and its wharf have been active parts of our community for over 200 years. At low tide, walk along the beach, picnic in the grass, and watch as fishermen haul in their catch of the day.
Discover a wetlands environment like no other in Miramichi. A groomed trail bisecting the marsh is a local favourite and provides a unique blend of recreation and nature, making this spot perfect for a quick escape or a leisurely stroll.
A welcoming rest area for visitors entering Miramichi from the northwest, Vye's Beach provides a peaceful view of the Miramichi River and popular destinations like Beaubears Island and Strawberry Marsh. Step out onto the lookout platform for unrivaled views of our majestic river.
Celebrate with us at the home of some of Miramichi's finest festivals and events. A stone's throw from Historic Water Street, Waterford Green is the eastern hub of activity in Miramichi. Learn about our history from various interpretive panels lining the trails and be sure to take a picture with Francis Peabody, the Founder of the Town of Chatham.
