I am also visiting Newfoundland for the first time in June. I am not sure how much time you have had to plan so I will pass on a few things that I have found out along the way. Also by providing more information it will make it easier for those that have been there or are living there to reply.
What dates will you be there? How many weeks. How will you be travelling? What type of accommodations do you prefer? Are you travelling with children? Do you like to hike?
If you have time contact the Newfoundland Tourism Bureau. Their 2006 brochure is excellent. There web site is:
The brochure has everything from accommodations and dining to must see events and sites.
If you have not had a chance look at as many previous posting in the tripadvisor Newfoundland forum. There is everything from the "10 must see" sites to "where is the best places to view icebergs and whales".
Sorry I could not have been more help. Good luck and have a safe trip.
