Historic Barkerville

a step back in time


Billy Barker’s legendary gold strike set off a billion dollar industrial revolution that built a province! Today, the historic town of Barkerville, which was named after Billy still stands as testament to BC’s origins. It was declared a National Historic Site of Canada back in 1924. It’s one of the largest living-history museums in North America.

Explore more than 125 heritage buildings, period displays, restaurants, shops and more. Experience all these historic offerings at your leisure. This getaway takes you to Quesnel where you will spend two nights at the Billy Barker Hotel & Casino. Heading south, the final evening will be spent at the majestic Sun Peaks Resort staying at the Sun Peak Grand Hotel.


Sun Peaks Grand is located in the core of the European-inspired village at the Sun Peaks Resort. Enjoy boutiques, restaurants and mountain.
