Parry Sound (2006 census population 5,818) is a town in Central Ontario, Canada, located on the eastern shore of Georgian Bay). Parry Sound is located 160 km (100 miles) south of Sudbury and 225 km (145 miles) north of Toronto. It is the seat of Parry Sound District, a popular cottage country region for Southern Ontario residents increasing the town's population to approximately 75,000 during the summer months. It is also the world's deepest natural freshwater port. The town is host to an annual sailing regatta and a classical music festival, the Festival of the Sound. It is the birthplace of hockey legend Bobby Orr, the namesake of the local community centre.

Canadian actor Don Harron's alter-ego, Charlie Farquarson, remains one of the town's most cherished personalities. Former Ontario premier Ernie Eves also called the town home for many years; he was the MPP for the Parry Sound—Muskoka riding from 1981 through 2001. Other attractions include the 30,000 Islands tour aboard the Island Queen, and the newly opened Charles W. Stockey Centre for the Performing Arts in conjunction with the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame. The Stockey Centre has, since it opened, hosted many Festival of the Sound concerts as well as film festivals. The film STHTFH2 was also shot partly in and around the area.
