  • Description


    I moved to Bonavista 5 years ago and have renovated a couple of homes in the area. I've always lived in large cities and felt it was time to experience some small-town life! Bonavista is a vibrant township with a growing community of artists and artisans inspired by coastal living.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cape Bonavista is the place explorer John Cabot made first landfall in the New World in 1497. Every year, visitors from across the province and further afield make the journey to soak up the sun and the natural beauty of this coastal town. Workawayers will enjoy the incredible nature of this beautiful fishing town, see icebergs in May and June, catch whales dancing in the sea, and watch the puffins at Cape Bonavista and Elliston Bird Island. The area has been awarded UNESCO Geopark status in recognition of the area's geological significance. Workawayers will also learn firsthand about the history of the island and the fishing industry. This is a maritime total immersion!
