About the Town
The Place . . .
Long Harbour is an active, growing community located on the Western Avalon Peninsula. We are approximately 11 kms. from the Trans Canada Highway with a newly upgraded access road and only one hour's drive from the City of St. John's on a divided highway. We are situated only one half hour's drive from the Argentia Ferry to Nova Scotia. Even though we are a small town with a population of a little less than 300 residents, we have lots to offer.
The People . . .
Our people are friendly with a unique heritage and a rich culture. Our abundance of talents and skills has been increased by the many families that were resettled here from nearby islands in Placentia Bay in the 1960's.
The Way of Life . . .
The residents of our Town enjoy a safe, quiet and relaxed way of life. There is abundance of wildlife in our area and moose, partridge, rabbits and many varieties of birds can be seen on a regular basis. Outdoor recreation activities can be enjoyed depending on the season. For example boating and fishing in summer along with snowmobiling and ice fishing in winter.
