Attractions

Kingsbrae Garden

This garden will take your breath away. Kingsbrae Garden is a multi-award winning 27 acre horticultural masterpiece located across the street from the Algonquin Resort. Today, the Garden includes an extraordinary collection of rhododendrons, roses & day lilies and many themed gardens: White, Knot, Bird & Butterfly to name a few. Keep your eyes peeled for the alpacas, peacocks and pygmy goats.

Minsters Island

Experience a trip across the ocean floor. Ministers Island is such a unique adventure, mostly because this 500-acre island is only a part-time island. You reach it by driving over the seafloor approximately one kilometer (1/2 mile).

Huntsman Fundy Discovery Aquarium

Discover the underwater world of the beautiful Bay of Fundy. This interactive aquarium will excite children and adults alike with the gigantic touch pool and skate tank! Enjoy the children’s play area, feature films and videos, interactive displays, the walking path to the beach and so much more!
