Discover

St Helens

Life in St Helens is all about the ocean. The beaches, bays and estuaries here are perfect for swimming, beach walking, sailing, snorkelling and scuba diving and every kind of fishing. Hire or bring your own boat, join a charter to fish for big marlin and tuna on the edge of the continental shelf, or simply drop a line from the jetty to try for some of the tasty local bream. This is also the place to indulge in delicious, freshly caught seafood, including oysters, scallops, abalone, rock lobster and all manner of scale fish, sold at the local fish punts and in cafes and restaurants in town.

St Helens is the gateway to the Bay of Fires and Binalong Bay. Closer to town, you can take the one-hour return walk to spectacular Peron Dunes and the vast ocean beach. Browse the town’s shops, cafes and galleries and visit the History Room at the St Helens History and Visitor Information Centre to discover the Trail of the Tin Dragon—a series of experiences from St Helens to Launceston that tells the story of Chinese tin miners who lived and worked in north east Tasmania.

Choose from cosy bed and breakfast, resort, hotel, motel, holiday house or cabin and caravan park accommodation, or experience St Helens’ incredible coastal environment on a camping holiday.
