Terra Nova National Park is a place where long fingers of the North Atlantic Ocean touch the island boreal forest of Eastern Newfoundland. Rocky headlands provide shelter from the awesome power of the open ocean. The landscape of the park varies from the rugged cliffs and sheltered inlets of the coastal region to the rolling forested hills, bogs and ponds of the inland. Cultural history abounds in the remnants of sawmills and past human cultures.

but the travellers centre was closed when we stopped in. Bit disappointing but again later in the season so I guess they were only open on the weekends. Regardless, the park itself was beautiful.
