The Beaubears Island Interpretive Centre provides insights into Miramichi's historical past; the people and how they shaped the land and the land shaped them. Historical character actors tell the story of the people and of their lives.

Now managed by Parks Canada, this island is a hiker's haven. Take your time and have one of the guides tell you the island's history. Hike one of the paths. Tranquil and beautiful. Worth at least half a day.
