It is in Division No. 6, on the Exploits River, near the town of Grand Falls-Windsor and the town of Botwood. It is commonly thought of as having the warmest summer temperatures in all of Newfoundland and Labrador.
The railroad played a major part in the area's history, as the town was a central hub during the travels of the "Newfie Bullet". There is a trestle in the town which is the longest east of Quebec. The existing trestle is the last of many which were built and destroyed by the strong ice flows (and a flood) that occur in the winter. The town sits along the Exploits River which flows through and to the falls from which the town takes its name.
Bishop's Falls also boasts a famous NHL player name, Alex Faulkner who played with Gordie Howe.
