A place for adventure and exploration - or complete relaxation.
Authentic encounters with the unique landscape and culture of the Baie des Chaleurs.
Enjoy a heritage experience in period buildings that can be rented by the day or the week during the summer*.
Explore the extensive forest trails on an eighty-two-acre site with 18 buildings, a former airstrip and pebble beach at the mouth of the Grande-Cascapedia River.
Enjoy displays and exhibitions of objects chosen from the site's collections - ranging from farm machinery and home furnishings to handmade household utensils.
Follow our yearly programme of cultural events highlighting the intercultural exchanges.
Discover the stories and historical importance of the site – Duthie Point having been originally occupied by the Mi’gmaq before being taken over by the Acadians, and subsequently the Scottish, Loyalist, English and Irish settlers.
*Duthie Point now offers some of its best-preserved buildings for summer tourist rentals: they range from the comfortable bourgeois Harvey house and the Willett five-bedroom fishing lodge to the more rustic Brown, Campbell and Ozzie Willett houses. For the adventurous there is also the chance of sleeping in the lighthouse.
The original Mi’gmaq name for the point is Nesue’g: which suggests the coming together of three to form a triangle.
The triangle formed by the Point has come to symbolise our mission to bridge between the three groups that have passed through it the Mi’gmaq and the French and English speaking settlers.
This is the heart for our new programming.
