Sydney overview

Sydney is the second largest city in Nova Scotia and the only city on Cape Breton Island. A visit to Sydney means being well located to enjoy everything Cape Breton Island has to offer, in addition to exploring the attractions that are unique to Sydney.

Time permitting, take advantage of Sydney’s proximity to the Cabot Trail, known as one of the most scenic drives in the world. Many people choose to take the drive over a few days, stopping in various towns along the way, but it’s also possible to drive a portion just to get a taste for the beautiful scenery.

In Sydney itself, there are many things to see and do. The Fortress of Louisbourg is the largest historical reconstruction in North America and a visit here is like stepping back in time. More than a dozen buildings are open to the public where you can experience life as it would have been in the 18th century.

Sydney is also home to the world’s largest fiddle, which can be found at the Port of Sydney. The fiddle and the bow reach a height of over 59 ft (18 metres). Sydney’s waterfront area is not only home to a giant fiddle, it’s also a scenic spot to walk around, or watch ships in the harbour. There are also several hotels on the waterfront.

Stop by the Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design for a look at the work of over 70 Cape Breton artisans, learn about Cape Breton’s coal mining history with a visit to the Cape Breton Miners Museum, and get a better idea of the history and culture of Cape Breton with a trip to The Cape Breton Centre for Heritage and Science.
