Sunday Drive to Rocky Harbour

The Wharf in Rocky Harbour

Nestled in Gros Morne National Park is Rocky Harbour. The town has a population of 937 but the population is much higher in the summer months with tourists making Rocky Harbour a must-stop.

The area was inhabited for hundreds of years. Prior to the arrival of Europeans, the area was inhabited by the Mi'kmaw people.

Rocky Harbour is perhaps best known for its tourism industry but the fishery and the wood industry also make up the economic fabric of the community.

Today, the town features several government services including a post office, an RCMP detachment, a health centre, and a school.

The area is riddled with tourist attractions, walking trails, and theatre events.

Rocky Harbour offers beautiful sunsets over the ocean in the evening. It is one of the most breathtaking locations in the province.
