Daniel's Harbour, was a mining town for some seventeen years. With the closure of the zinc mine in 1990 it remains a traditional fishing community, with a natural rock wall protecting the small harbour. The town is surrounded by natural attractions, with interesting and beautiful benches on one side, and breathtaking scenery offered by the Long Range Mountains on the other.

Daniel's Harbour is also home to Nurse Myra Bennett and "Uncle" Rufus Guinchard. The nursing accomplishments of Nurse Bennett gave her national and international attention and respect, and her home and personal effects remain in Daniel's Harbour and serve as a significant attraction for the area. The traditional Newfoundland music "Uncle Rufus produced on his fiddle, became internationally recognized as he played in various European countries and as far away as Japan.
