"There's no place I would rather be than here in Newfoundland" .. St. Philips, NL Canada
The isolated community of McCallum is probably most reminiscent of the typical Newfoundland outport that would have existed prior to the 1900's. Access to McCallum is by air or boat only. The community is approximately a 90 minute ferry ride from Hermitage and the ferry runs once a day. The community is situated in a relatively enclosed harbour situated between two hills sheltering it from the rough Atlantic Seas. Travel around the community is primarily by foot.
