Curious about the park? Visit the Discovery Centre. From geology to plants, moose to caribou, marine life to arctic life and the people of the past and present, your questions will be answered here.
Explore the geology exhibit which reveals the secrets of Gros Morne’s amazing geology, the reason for our UNESCO World Heritage Site designation. Do you have kids? Bring them to the Kids’ Camp Zone! Enjoy a tenting experience where games and toys awaits.
Too, you can watch the park film, find books and gifts at the Tuckamore Shoppe, or grab a sandwich at the café. There, taste a delicious soup made the old fashioned Newfoundland way or delight in a real espresso, beans roasted locally. Tired? Sit back and marvel at the beauty around you.
Get out and hike too. From the Discovery Centre you can head up the Lookout Trail onto the arctic highlands for an incredible view on the park and Tablelands, or for a more gentle adventure walk up to the Em Tapper Look-off. Take the community trail into Woody Point, skirting old cemeteries and stopping at one of the best lookouts in the region.
