The Bay of Quinte region is made up of five waterfront communities. Explore what they have to offer, get to know the locals and see why so many people are visiting on a weekend road trip or making the decision to plant new roots here.
Brighton is the on the west end of the region, approximately an hour from the GTA. The community is anchored by Presqu’ile Provincial Park and extends to where the Murray Canal connects Lake Ontario to the Bay of Quinte.
Quinte West is located on the western end of the Bay of Quinte at the mouth of the Trent River, serving as the gateway to the Trent Severn Waterway which connects Georgian Bay to Lake Ontario.
Belleville is the largest and most central city in the region with a variety of big city amenities that a community of 50,000+ people call home. It’s situated at the mouth of the Moira River on the Bay of Quinte.
TYENDINAGA MOHAWK TERRITORY
Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory is located between Belleville and Greater Napanee with its southern edge running along the Bay of Quinte. Consisting of more than 9,000 members (over 2,000 living on the Territory), the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte are the third largest First Nation in Ontario.
Greater Napanee is on the eastern end of the Bay of Quinte, and is the county seat of Lennox and Addington. A short drive west from Kingston will bring you right into Downtown Greater Napanee, where the Napanee River bisects the town.
