Georgina is bounded by Lake Simcoe to the north, Township of Brock to the east, Cook’s Bay and the Town of Bradford–West Gwillimbury to the west, and the Town of East Gwillimbury and the Township of Uxbridge to the south. The municipality is predominantly rural consisting of three larger urban centres – Keswick, Sutton/Jackson’s Point and Pefferlaw – and the hamlets of Virginia, Udora, Baldwin, Belhaven, Brownhill and Ravenshoe.
Lake Simcoe is located approximately 60 km north of the City of Toronto and is a little more than an hour’s drive from half the population in Ontario. The watershed has a total land and water surface area of 3,580 km2, of which the lake occupies about 20 per cent or 722 km2. Lake Simcoe is part of the Trent Severn Waterway that connects Lake Ontario to Georgian Bay in Lake Huron.
