St Helens

St Helens is a popular tourist destination, just a few kilometres from Binalong Bay and the beautiful beaches of the Bay of Fires, one of Lonely Planet's top 10 regions in the world.
St Helens is the largest town on Tasmania's North East Coast and an ideal base from which to discover this varied, interesting and beautiful region. The town overlooks scenic Georges Bay and is sheltered by the long headland of St Helens Point, much of which is a public conservation area and popular with bushwalkers; the walk from St Helens Point Conservation Area to Beer Barrel Beach takes in the spectacular Peron Dunes.
St Helens is the perfect place to laze away a few sunny seaside days with the beaches ideal for swimming and surfing. Its all year round sunny climate and warm seas, the result of a microclimate produced by the surrounding hills and warm ocean currents, makes St Helens a popular tourist destination.

It's also popular with divers for its extensive kelp forests and underwater caves.
Inland from St Helens you'll find rainforest, waterfalls, the lush Pyengana Valley and historic pubs dating back to the region's tin mining era, while further north is Mount William National Park.
