St Helens

4.4
Overlooking scenic Georges Bay, St Helens is the largest town on the northeast coast of Tasmania, ranking among Australia's top destinations for recreational game fishing. A stone's throw away from white beaches and clear waters of Binalong Bay, this large fishing port with a laidback vibe offers all the amenities of a busy town with no shortage of shops and eateries where you can sample fresh seafood. Founded in the early 19th century as a whaling base, the city transformed from a shipping port into a popular resort for all kinds of water activities, such as sailing, swimming, surfing, snorkeling, and scuba diving. Although most tours of St Helens revolve around the ocean, its beaches, dunes, and seabird reserves, St Helens holidays would not be complete without exploring forests and waterfalls in its outback. St Helens is in Tasmania. Find what you're looking for from your St Helens holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Australia trip itinerary planner .
