Kazabazua Real Estate Listings and Information
Kazabazua is a village located about halfway between Maniwaki and Hull at the intersection of Route 105 and Route 301, just west of the Gatineau River.
The village and municipality are named after the Kazabazua River which passes through it. This word comes from the Algonquin word kachibadjiwan, from kach ("hidden") and djiwan ("current"), hence it means "underground river". This name is a reflection of the local topography because the Kazabazua River disappears underground and resurfaces a few dozen metres downstream. The river then flows through rapids and passes under a natural stone bridge.
The communities of Danford Lake, Kazabazua Station and Aylwin are located nearby. The area is dotted with many lakes, most with sand bottoms, and has been a favourite cottaging area for many years.
