World’s Largest Axe

All special places, museums and memorials to forestry and woodland heritage in New Brunswick are eclipsed by the World’s Largest Axe in Nackawic – a 19.5 metre (64 feet) long, eight ton double-sided axe with a stainless steel blade that stands on a concrete base used to simulate a tree trunk.

It was built in 1991 to commemorate the selection of Nackawic as Forestry Capital of Canada.

Saint John River Valley

Recommended by HEIDI LEGG

The Saint John River (French: Fleuve Saint-Jean) is a 673 kilometres long river that flows from Northern Maine into New Brunswick, emptying into the Atlantic Ocean. Nackawic is nestled in the scenic Saint John River Valley where the cool waters of the Nackawic Stream meet the mighty Saint John.

Route 102 starting near Nackawic follows the St. John River, and it’s a pleasure to drive – especially during the fall colour season, in early October.

Kings Landing

The area was first settled in 1784 by the United Empire Loyalists, primarily through land grants to the families of soldiers.

Many of their original homes can be seen today at Kings Landing, a 19th-century village. You can step back in time with a community of costumed characters in 70 historic buildings.
