Miramichi Travel Guide
Welcome to Miramichi!
The largest city in northern New Brunswick, Miramichi was formed in 1995 by the amalgamation of five neighbouring towns. The city is located near the mouth of the Miramichi River, which drains into the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Miramichi is ethnically diverse; Miqmaq, Acadian, Scots and Irish have all contributed to its history and character. The Miramichi area was originally an important regional centre for fishing, logging, shipping and ship-building. This legacy is reflected in the architecture of the region. Due to its early prosperity, the Miramichi boasts a number of fine Victorian homes. It also has the largest church in Canada east of Quebec City, the neo-Gothic St. Michael's Basilica. Today, Miramichi offers its guests a wide range of sights, activities and events like the Rock n Roll Festival and the White Gold Festival. The waterfronts and wharves have been preserved and are popular destinations. Sailing, salmon fishing and canoeing are among the many recreational opportunities it offers.
The Basilica of Saint Michael the Archangel, or Saint Michaelís Basilica as it is commonly known, is the largest church east of Quebec in Canada.
