This region, know as 'the Northside' is so named because of its location on the north shore of Sydney Harbour.The communities of Bras d'Or and Florence are situated on the Trans Canada Highway (Hwy 105) just west of North Sydney. Here you will find accommodations, restaurants, campgrounds and other services. Sydney Mines and North Sydney are located at the very end of the Trans Canada Highway.

If your plans include a trip to Newfoundland, this is the place to be. The Marine Atlantic Ferry Terminal will put you aboard one of the two largest car/passenger ferries in North America, and send you out across the Cabot Strait to Port aux Basques or Argentia.
