'''Grey River''' is a town on the [[Southern Newfoundland|southern coast]] of [[Newfoundland and Labrador|Newfoundland]].
'''Grey River''' is a town on the [[Southern Newfoundland|southern coast]] of [[Newfoundland and Labrador|Newfoundland]]. Grey River is one of the last traditional outport villages in Newfoundland that “seems” like it has stayed largely the same despite the many changes of recent years. It’s located in what seems to be the “flattest side” of a mountainous, deep reach where it is protected from the ocean. The people of Grey River are good and kind, and will show you what life in a Newfoundland outport village is really like.

There are some nice waterfalls...and cliffs...and fish....and an abandoned mine...
Grey River is a fascinating place to explore. While there, one can hike the snowmobile trails to the top of the hills that surround the community or hike along the shore that leads to North East Arm. A sense of the community's history can be experienced by visiting the cemeteries.
 
 
 
Grey River is the site of an old tungsten mine and one can easily find pyrite, or fool's gold, amongst the rocks at the mine entrance.
 
 
 
A virtual paradise for the photographer or sportsman, the Grey River Fjord runs past the community and then separates into three river systems. North East Arm is considered to be one of the best salmon fishing rivers in all of eastern Canada. South East Arm offers breathtaking scenery. Its colourful landscape is a palette of lush green forest, rugged mountains and sandy beaches. In some areas, the beaches stretch out for a mile at low tide. North West Arm is also a spectacular site. However, it is best known for the big game animals found there, especially moose and caribou.

There is a general store as of July 2013. It has a surprising amount of housewares, canned goods and food items. As always, if you need something that bad, you should probably bring it with you.

A lot of Newfoundlanders habitually drink tea and Carnation milk (some people drink coffee, but don't expect it). It is an excuse to have a friendly chat to invite someone in for a "cuppa tea". In "town" i.e. St. John's (and the other city centers of Newfoundland) there are many good restaurants for the picking, and several vegetarian and vegan friendly spots.
