Georgian Bay Wonders-30,000 Wonders

Although neither Georgian Bay nor Manitoulin Island made the seven wonders of Canada as identified by CBC, the reality is there are more than 30,000 wonders in the newest biosphere reserve along the southeast, and east side of Georgian Bay. The 30,000 islands is not only a natural wonder, its history is deeply rooted in First Nations folklore and history. The statue in the town of Penetangishene is the sight of one of the most interesting stories as to how the 30,000 was formed. Georgian Bay has its own "sleeping giant" in Giant's Tomb Island, one of the larger of the islands in Southern Georgian Bay.

The bottom of the statue tells part of the story, however, you need to cruise around the 30,000 islands to experience the power of Kichikewwana.

A variety of accommodation is available. Book your Ontario summer accommodation in the Midland/Penetang area.
