Bay of Quinte Tourism


Our partnership of interconnected communities is proud to share resources and embraces all of our diverse community opportunities.

We recognize and acknowledge that we are living and working on the traditional territory of the Wendat, Mississauga, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee which includes the Kenhtè:ke Kanyen’kehá:ka (Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte) with whom we work in direct partnership with.

This partnership focuses on the common goal of celebrating the region with the Kenhtè:ke Kanyen’kehá:ka who are equal partners within the organization and at the Board of Directors table contributing to the mandate and operations.

This mandate includes listening to, learning from, and collaborating with the Kenhtè:ke Kanyen’kehá:ka and actively incorporating their culture and heritage into the practice of responsible destination marketing and management of the region.

We understand that this land acknowledgement is only a small step towards the larger process of reparations and reconciliation.

Kenhtè:ke Kanyen'kehá:ka (Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte)

Tyendinaga, as part of the Mohawk Nation, is a healthy, sustainable Kanyen’kehá:ka community, built on and united by language, culture, traditions, knowledge and history. Whereby the Kenhtè:ke Kanyen’kehá:ka exercise the rights and responsibilities of protecting and respecting their people, their land, their resources and the environment.

Municipality of Brighton

Nestled in the rolling hills of Northumberland County and along the shores of Lake Ontario, Brighton is a quaint town full of charm, local history and unique experiences. It’s known for its active yet laidback lakeside lifestyle. Like the seaside town in England but different.

It has a rich agricultural history and is home to many farms and orchards that come alive each summer and fall with an abundance of fresh produce, local baking and artisanal products.

The Downtown and Main Street areas boast a variety of shops from upscale boutiques and cafes to bookstores and international cuisines, all located within steps of community parks and green spaces. For those who love the outdoors, Brighton is located near two conservation areas and home to Presqu’ile Provincial Park with its long white sandy beaches, making it the perfect destination for biking, hiking, camping and bird watching.

Brighton has something for everyone if you’re looking for a weekend getaway, a longer stay or maybe a permanent escape from the hustle and bustle of city living.


Town of Greater Napanee

The Town of Greater Napanee has greenspace that’s perfect for outdoor lovers. Visit Conservation Park (located at 10 Pearl Street in downtown Napanee) for beautiful views of the Napanee River, space to enjoy a picnic and explore the downtown core with its unique shopping experiences and delicious local restaurants.

Walk along the Conservation Park boardwalk to the connecting Springside Park where you can catch a great photo op of the Napanee Falls and River. Put in a canoe or kayak at the Conservation Park boat launch and explore the falls up close. There’s lots to do in downtown Greater Napanee!
