Explore and experience 100 years of the earth’s and the region’s natural heritage along Nova Scotia’s Fundy Shore!
Within an hours’ drive you can experience two distinct time periods in earth’s history awaiting your discovery. The Joggins Fossil Cliffs UNESCO World Heritage Site and Centre in Joggins, Nova Scotia is famed for having the world’s most complete fossil record of life in the Carboniferous, or “Coal Age” when lush forests covered Joggins and much of the world's tropics, 300 million years ago. Preserved in situ at Joggins, “Coal Age” trees stand where they grew, the footprints of creatures are frozen where they once walked, the dens of amphibians are preserved with remnants of their last meal, and the earliest reptiles remain entombed within once hollow trees. Fundy Geological Museum in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia is home to the world’s earliest dinosaurs and many exquisite gems and minerals. Marvel at the display of mineral treasures and learn about the unique geology of the area, where the world’s highest tides constantly reveal new evidence of an ancient past. Visit a working fossil lab where scientists reconstruct the past - one bone fragment at a time. Discover fossils and footprints, rocky red cliffs and sea stacks, tranquil beaches and prehistoric landscapes.
Your visit through the earth’s timeline includes overnight accommodations for two at the beautiful, historic 4-star bed and breakfast, The Gillespie House Inn in Parrsboro. Located on a spacious two and one-half acres of shady maples, fragrant roses and colorful flower gardens, our inn is conveniently close to the town centre, yet a world apart. Enjoy the sun on the expansive front lawn, snooze in the shade of the century old maples or relax in the comfort of the Victorian Veranda. Overnight package includes dinner at Parrsboro's new Black Rock Bistro which prides itself in offering fresh, locally sourced food and beverages, and a hearty breakfast at the inn in the morning.
Book today to “fall” back in time along the Bay of Fundy; home to the world’s highest tides.
