    The Algonquin Gateway Business Association is based in the east of the Haliburton Highlands, covering a physical area just south of Algonquin Park, including all of the Municipality of Highlands East and the east side of the Municipality of Dysart et al, referred to most recently as, the East. The East consists of several distinctive communities: Irondale, Gooderham, Tory Hill, Wilberforce, Harcourt, Highland Grove and Cardiff. The Gateway to Algonquin Park, the GeoCaching Capital of Canada and so much more. We are excited to host one of only five geotours in Canada, the Geocaching Capital of Canada GeoTour with the kickoff event in May of 2015. Located less than two and a half hours from the Hwy 401 corridor in several directions, and the same from Ottawa, makes the area easy to visit.

    Members of the AGBA are proud of their community and are dedicated to improving business and promoting tourism throughout the region. We work together as members, and with other agencies, municipalities, and tourism organizations to learn and grow.

    The area has, and always will be, a place of serenity, and calls out to many just as it did to those pioneers so many years ago. Who can deny the incredible beauty of the rolling hills, the crystal clear lakes and streams, and the clean northern air? The great outdoors beckon those who are active in paddling, biking, fishing and hunting, hiking or just plain walking and let us not forget those who are content just catching a glimpse of our incredible and diverse wildlife. Geocachers always find their way to The Geocaching Capital of Canada to enjoy an event or just to find a stash or two. The creative come here to photograph, film and paint in the great outdoors.

    If you are visiting the area, plan to stay a while as there is plenty to discover. We offer comfortable accommodations, unique shopping, and some amazing events. For up-to-date event listings, check online at highlandseast.ca or experiencehaliburton.com

    Do as little or as much as you want everyone is welcome in our wonderful four-season wonderland!
