Visit The Beaubears Island Interpretive Centre at 35 St. Patrick’s Drive, Nelson-Miramichi.
Join a guide for a 45-minute tour of the Island, and hear the harrowing story of the Acadian Expulsion, of Camp D’Ésperance, and of the great tragedy that followed. As you look on the last vestiges of the Island’s shipyard, take a moment to step back in time when the sound of auger, saw, and file were heard plainly among the pines.
Meet our characters, from early French fur traders, to the Marquis Charles Deschamps de Boishebert, to the various shipbuilders who inhabited the island for over 100 years. Experience the multicultural history of the Miramichi at Beaubears Island. You can also find more information here.
