The village of Dorchester, steeped in the historical beginnings of this country, is located at the head of the Bay of Fundy, nestled in the heart of the Maritimes just 25 minutes from Moncton. Dorchester, located on Route 106, can be accessed from the Trans Canada Highway via either the Memramcook Valley (Exit 482) or Sackville (Exit 504) with either route offering the spectacular scenery of the Fundy area.

A scenic coastal drive, Route 935, loops from Sackville to Dorchester via Rockport following the spectacular coastline of the upper Bay.

Included are the expansive mudflats at Johnson’s Mills and Dorchester Cape, the feeding grounds of hundreds of thousands of migrating shorebirds each July and August.
