Cabot Trail

We are arriving in Sydney on Oct 7 on the NCL Dawn. We plan on renting a car and driving the Cabot Trail. Are there any especially scenic spots we should be on the lookout for? Thanks!

I am not sure how long you have in port, but most can only get as far as Ingonish.. You should take the Englshtown Ferry for the experience- you will see most of the scenic panoramas, there are lay by's to pull over.

If you go to the search box below and put Cabot Trail you will find many posts and opinions on the subject.

You willonly get to see part of the Cabot Trail as Lulu told you. Here is a map showing what you MAY have time to do. It depends upon stops and whether you want to take time for lunch. If it were me, I would grab a sandwich and try to get to Neil's Harbour. The best scenery for me on this section of the trail is between Ingonish Beach and neil's Harbour.


If you do a search below you shold find lots more information.

Also google toms port guides.
