Information about town and facilities:

Located on the celebrated East Coast of Tasmania, St Helens is one of Tasmania’s premier tourist destinations. With its sheltered harbour, sprawling tree-lined streets, distinctive orange lichen coated granites and countless islands, lagoons and bays, the region fosters a laid-back coastal lifestyle that’s all too easy to fall in love with.

St Helens is famous for its fresh local seafood, aquatic activities, and beautiful oceanic scenery. Originally a whaling base in the early 1800s, and later a shipping port, the town today is the state’s second largest fishing port, and a Tasmanian tourism hotspot. St Helens’ mild temperate climate makes it a popular destination, as it’s often warmer than the rest of the state.

Visitors and locals flock to St Helens to explore the picturesque coastal township and its rich history, and to sample its delicious fresh local seafood (including its famous lobster, oysters, scallops and abalone), available at the many cafes and restaurants and the local fish punt. 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 regions in the world by popular travel agency Lonely Planet. Popular activities include, fishing, swimming, surfing, sailing, diving, bushwalking, and just relaxing on the beach.
