Explore Georges Island

I was excited to learn that Parks Canada and the Offshore/Onshore Technologies Association of Nova Scotia (OTANS) will be allowing the general public to experience Georges Island National Historic Site.
Located in the heart of Halifax Harbour, this National Historic Site derives its historical significance from its former role in the Halifax Defence System. Georges Island is not currently open to the public, but in response to public interest, Parks Canada and OTANS have worked together to create this event.

“Explore Georges Island” will provide visitors with a rare chance to explore the island, learn about its rich military past and enjoy the spectacular harbour views! -- OTNAS (Link)
