DescriptionOn the voyageur route to the west, what is now the town of Killarney was once called Shebhanoning, meaning narrow channel. Renamed in 1854, the town had become a commercial fishing center. Historical attractions such as lighthouses, oak boatbuilding sheds, a school and post office are reminders of the town's days as a fishing village.
On the shores of the Georgian Bay marking the entrance to the North Channel of Lake Huron, this area offers a range of recreational opportunities. In the summer, camping, boating, fishing and hiking are popular pursuits. In the winter, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, ice fishing and curling are favored pastimes.
