The location of Aviron Bay













Welcome to Aviron Bay ...

Although we found mention of Aviron Bay during our research, we really don't have any information about it.<1> Given the context of how Aviron Bay was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..

We've added Aviron Bay to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Aviron Bay, please Contact Us.


Aviron Bay is located on the south coast of Newfoundland (on the Cabot Strait).

We aren't confident of the location of Aviron Bay, so consider the above location as an estimate.<2>

Aviron Bay is 950 feet [290 m] above sea level.<3>.

Time Zone: The area where we believe that Aviron Bay might be (or was) located is in the Newfoundland Time Zone (NST/NDT) and observes daylight saving time. The time zone in French: NST- Heure Normale de Terre-Neuve (HNT), NDT- Heure Avancée de Terre-Neuve (HAT).

We believe that Aviron Bay would be found within the (709) area code.

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went north past Aviron Bay and then turned east". While Aviron Bay could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Aviron Bay as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Mile's to see Pete ... Mile's is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Aviron Bay could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong . Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.

<2>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or gone without an obvious trace.

<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Aviron Bay) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Aviron Bay. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 47.5845, Longitude: -56.8149     [Map].

<5>Unless noted otherwise, the population counts we use should be considered estimates. Our population values for Aviron Bay were taken from various sources and although they can be traced back to Statistics Canada (StatCan), they should not be considered official.
