Where to stay in Sydney

Exploring Sydney

Ditch the confines of the city and head to Canada’s easternmost semi-rural resort town, where whale watching, fishing, and cycling the twisting and turning routes that wind their way over the undulating landscape of the island are some of the exciting things to do. In the small-town of Sydney in Nova Scotia, relaxation is key. Friendly local store keepers stop to pass the time of day, and at the marina, chintzy arts and crafts stalls ply their trade of handmade Cape Breton souvenirs.

Sightseeing in Sydney

- St. Patrick's Church Museum


The museum of Saint Patrick's church sits right on the coastline, a pretty stone-built structure with a small bell tower and slate tiled roof. White shuttered windows and gothic archways give away the age of this quaint building, the oldest Roman Catholic Church on Nova Scotia. You can’t enjoy services here anymore, but you can view exhibitions of early religious life on the island.


- Jost Heritage House


This was once the home of a prominent merchan. Today a museum, it displays local marine life, Cape Breton history and a reconstructed apothecary.


Transportation in Sydney

Although Sydney is the largest urban community on the rugged island of Cape Breton, it’s not well serviced by international transportation links. The closest terminal sits at Sydney Airport which is ideal if you’re traveling on a connecting flight from Toronto or Halifax. It’s easier to fly international to the southern island and hire a car to drive over the Canso causeway to your destination. Local buses provide a good service around town but since most attractions lie outside its boundaries, a hire car is a worthwhile option.
