The location

Located on the East Coast of Tasmania, St Helens is one of Tasmania’s premier tourist destinations. The largest town on the East Coast, St Helens is also the state’s second largest fishing port – there are few better places to sample the abundance of amazing fresh seafood than the local eateries or harbourside fishing punts.

The ocean provides a focal point for leisure activities in the region. Dotted up and down the coast are excellent spots for sailing, surfing, swimming, whale-watching, or just enjoying the laid-back coastal ambience. Visitors enjoy exploring Georges Bay with its white sandy beaches, turquoise waters, kelp forests, underwater caves, and vibrant marine life. The town is also close to the famous Bay of Fires, a renowned Tasmanian holiday destination which was listed as one of the top 10 destinations in the world by Lonely Planet.

The town itself is a hub for the greater region, ensuring a comprehensive coverage of services including several great school options, and a wide range of shops, eateries and entertainment venues.
