If you are interested in the geology of the Burin Peninsula, minerals and rocks, the 1929 Grand Banks Tsunami, or prehistoric animals, our new exhibits are for you! Make sure to keep your eyes open, though — there are also dinosaurs lurking in our new exhibition!

We offer daily tours to the Fortune Head Ecological Reserve, which holds the Global Stratotype Section and Point (GSSP) for the geologic time boundary between the Precambrian era and the Cambrian period. These globally significant, 541 million year old rocks are celebrated at Fortune Head Geology Centre and mark the beginning of increasing biological diversity of life on Earth.
