Bay of Quinte Tourism

Welcome to Quinte West

Quinte West

Explore the urban and rural offerings of the City of Quinte West, home of Canadian Forces Base 8 Wing Trenton, the National Air Force Museum and the gateway to the historic Trent-Severn Waterway. The urban centre is surrounded by a rural tapestry of century homes and country churches. Traverse along the Trent at Riverfront Square, where you’ll enjoy locally sourced dining with a waterfront view. Step outside the city limits and you’ll be met with farm stands, antiques, and winding drives. To the east, hiking and cycling trails delve through the wooded ridges and sloping meadows of the Oak Hills, while north, roads and water lead past locks, to Batawa, Frankford and beyond.

Welcome to Quinte West!
