The signage from the highway is poor . We could not find the Fishway only seeing a large sign for a museum.

Had a casual business meeting at the restaurant, the food was excellent as was the service. The view was second to none. Well done.

This is the only way to see the Grand Falls of Exploits River. It was closed for season but parking lot and path way were accessible. Quite spectacular falls in spring time with a lot of water.

We went through the exhibits and found them informative and interesting. The scenery is lovely and it is worth looking out to see the salmon jump. On our way out we had a bite to eat, and though you won't find fresh wild salmon on...More

We were brought here by our bus tour. The area is quite beautiful and it is so facinating to stand there and watch the salmon trying to get upstream using the ladder. Sometimes, you feel sorry for them as they try so hard and end...More

Hi, I am not sure if the interpretation centre will be open. If not you would still have access to the trails that would allow you to see the falls.
