The largest town on Tasmania's north-east coast, St Helens is a scenic coastal town that offers a relaxing, romantic atmosphere and breath-taking views of coastline.
Enjoy The Best Of The Coast
St Helens is a great place to explore the peaceful bushlands of Tasmania, from the spectacular Peron Dunes to the broad, rugged coast. Rug up and take an enchanting hike to the stunning Binalong Bay, Eddystone Point and the iconic Bay of Fires, a pristine stretch of white sandy beaches and extraordinary giant granite boulders. Or pack a picnic filled with local produce and take a drive along the coastline to The Gardens, where you can catch beautiful views of the Bay of Fires.
A Rich History
Like many Tasmanian towns, St Helens came to be because of its strong population of sealers and whalers. This sad, but fascinating moment in Australia's history can be learnt about at the cosy St Helens History Room, where locals will be delighted to share with you their towns, and their families history.
An Anglers Paradise
Many know St Helens as the game fishing capital of Tasmania, and it regularly draws visitors from around Australia to try their luck at angling along this stretch of coast. During March the popular St Helens Game Fishing Classic draws enthusiastic crowds and always ends in a great feast. If you're keen to enjoy life under the water, St Helens is also a popular area for scuba diving, with its stunning underwater caves and extensive kelp forests.
Homes Away From Home
In winter, watch the storms roll in while curled up by the fire, and in summer enjoy watching fishermen pull in their catches along the Georges Bay shoreline while enjoying deliciously fresh fish and chips. Life in St Helens offers tourists the best of a coastal Tasmanian lifestyle in a setting that has seen tourists return year after year, for decades.
