Visit Us - Guided Fossil Site Visit

There’s no other place in the world like Manuels River. Travel back through time and explore over 650 million years of history.

Join us on a journey into the past, to a time where ancient creatures roamed the oceans. You’ll head downstream, starting off at the Manuels River Hibernia Interpretation Centre. Then, after a picturesque stroll through woods, you’ll come face to face with the fossilized remains of the trilobites, brachiopods and other animals that called Manuels River home over half a billion years ago. It’s an experience you can’t find anywhere else and what has made us into an international destination. Tours are approximately an hour and a half.


For the months of July & August, we will be offering a lunch & tour package called, Food & Fossils.

After or before your fossil site visit, enjoy a Coffee Matters sandwich lunch combination and explore the Manuels River Hibernia Interpretation Centre exhibits.
