Cupids Cove Plantation Provincial Historic Site
During 2022 the Cupids Cove Plantation PHS will be open seven days a week, between 9:30 am and 5:00 pm, from May 21st to October 7th. A tour takes at least 30 minutes, so plan to be there by 4:30 pm at the latest. You can contact the Cupids Cove Plantation at 709-528-1413. School and other group tours of the site and the Cupids Legacy Centre can be arranged by phoning 709-528-1610.

Dildo Island/Anderson’s Cove
Unfortunately the museum at the Dildo Brewery is currently closed. However plans are underway to construct a new museum, the Dildo Outport Heritage Museum, which hopefully will be open next season.
Anderson’s Cove is about a 2 km walk from the Dildo Brewery. Tours of Dildo Island can be arranged by calling the Dildo Cove Heritage Experience at 709-699-6864.
New Perlican
A small exhibit on the Hefford Plantation, including some of the artifacts recovered from the site, is currently on display at the town hall in New Perlican. The hall is open Monday to Thursday from 8 am to 4 pm and on Fridays from 8 am to 2 pm. Visitors are welcome. The Hefford Plantation is located on private land just north of the bridge in New Perlican behind the Fred Grant Memorial Building.

Hikers should also check out the D’Iberville Coastal Hiking Trail which retraces the route followed by D’Iberville from the Sugarloaf in Winterton, through New Perlican and on to Heart’s Content during his attack on the English Shore in the winter of 1697. In New Perlican the trail can be accessed at either Garlop Point or Jean’s Head.
Russell’s Point
Russell's Point is located behind Russell's Ultramar in Blaketown. It is just a five minute drive north from the TransCanada Highway at Whitbourne and a ten minute drive south from Dildo. People can visit the site at Russell's Point and view the history boards at any time.
The Wooden Boat Museum of Newfoundland and Labrador is located in Winterton, just a short drive north of New Perlican. The museum includes many artifacts from Winterton’s past including the William Lincefild headstone. Pinhorn’s Room is located between the museum and the beach.
