The Kincardine Lighthouse is a historic lighthouse located in Kincardine, Ontario near the mouth of the Penetangore River and Inn at the Harbour! Built in 1881, it is 24.4 metres (74 feet) tall and was built above the light keeper's home. The tower is eight sided and sits on a stone foundation. The facility has been renovated and is now the Kincardine Yacht Club and a museum.It is open for tours from July 1 to Labour Day.

Walker House

The Walker House was built in 1850 by Francis "Paddy" Walker and remains the oldest standing wooden hotel in Bruce & Grey Counties, and the oldest building in town. Only ever owned by two families, Walker and Gairns, the House was run as an inn and tavern for over a hundred years. 

Now a local museum and heritage centre, because of a fire that went through the place in 1995. In 1998, the Paddy Walker Heritage Society was formed to save and restore the building. Ten years and thousands of volunteer hours later, the Walker House was reopened in 2008 as a local museum and heritage centre.

Kincardine Station Beach

Station Beach is definitely a beach for every age with its shallow water, gradual slope, sandy beach, and a smattering of pebbles lining the water's edge.

Sunning and swimming are the most popular activities for people of all ages. For the more physically active, there is co-ed beach volleyball every Friday at 7 p.m.

The boardwalk, bordering the beach, is a great place to stroll or jog and catch a bit of exercise. The boardwalk can be a learning experience, too. Soak up some local marine history as well as the sun through the interpretive signs with information about local shipwrecks.
