Port Union is located in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

Most people travel here via the ferry service between the province of Nova Scotia at North Sydney to the Town of Port Aux Basques on Newfoundland's southwest coast or via the seasonal ferry run from North Sydney to Argentia, on Newfoundland's Southeast coast. There are also many airports throughout the province with two International Airports, one at Gander and the other in the capital, St. John's.

Port Union is approximatly a one-hour drive (100 km) from the Trans-Canada Highway at Clarenville. Take Route 230-A from Clarenville or Route 230 from the Discovery Trail Overpass, or Route 233 at Port Blandford. Look for the Historic Port Union signs on the highway and on Route 230.
