A definite must, especially for families. Lots to see and do, from the outdoors to museums and cultural things. Kayaking is the most unusual and a great fun transportation you can imagine for travelling back in geological prehistory.

Great geologic history, and also history of geology, all well explained in booklets, brochures and on information panels at some of the sites.

Have to make sure you check the tides table and get there before the tide starts to come in. We wanted to see the caves so we had to go through a little bit of water to get to them. Well worth it. Spectacular view.

Stonehammer Geopark adds an extra layer of interest to many existing attractions in the Saint John area. Most locals wouldn't realize how interesting the geology is in the area. Visit the website at stonehammergeopark.com to get a better understanding of how this park works, as it covers a massive area from St. Martins to Lepreau.

The entire area is great if you love amazing rocks. Though one warning to tourists the address is not correct and don't look for an actual park. The Geopark represents the entire Saint John region.
