New Bonaventure - Newfoundland and Labrador

Route 239

Travelling the road from Historic Trinity, New Bonaventure is as far west as you can travel along the Northern shore of Trinity Bay.

St. John's Anglican church watches over the village, standing high on the hill. Built in 1923, it officially opened in 1924. Behind the alter was installed a beautiful stained glass window, depicting Christ on the Cross. What makes this window truly special is the soldier at the foot of the cross, dressed in uniform from W.W.I. The window is in memory of the young men from New Bonaventure who fought and died during the war.

A path from St. John's church in New Bonaventure will take you to the sites of several resettled communities. Walk to White Point on a path that is well worn and follows the coastline. Now resettled, few traces of a community life can be found.

Watch for wildlife as you hike on to Kerley's Harbour, less than an hour from New Bonaventure. A lookout point at the top of the hill gives you a chance to catch your breath and take in the view out to Ragged Island and Ireland's Eye.
