A short 10-minute drive from the Langdale ferry terminal, Gibsons was carved out of the hilly forest terrain of the Sunshine Coast. Known across the world as the home of the popular CBC Television series, The Beachcombers, the Town of Gibsons has two main commercial areas: Upper Gibsons which has shopping malls, restaurants, services and a light industrial area, and Lower Gibsons.
The main street in Lower Gibsons is filled with people visiting the bakeries, cafes, and shops, or strolling along the bustling fishing wharf and a seaside walk that link Gibsons Harbour, with its log wharfinger’s building and boardwalk over the breakwater to Winegarden Waterfront Park.
