St Helens - Cities, Towns and Localities
Only 36 km north of St Marys, on the Georges Bay, within the north east and east coast of Tasmania, St Helens began its history as a whaling and sealing settlement back in the early 1830s. Today, the town is known as the ‘Game Fishing Capital’ and still retains a fishing fleet, making it a great place not only for the anglers, but also those seeking the freshes of seafood. A place that provides not only good eating, but great accommodation.

For the visitor, St Helens makes a great base from which to enjoy the coastal beach reserves, with its fishing, surfing and scuba diving. There are a number of great walks, as well as the nearby St Columba Falls, Ralph Falls and the Eddystone Lighthouse.

Walking maps of the Blue Tier and surrounds are available from the local visitor centre, which also has an interactive model of the Anchor Mine Water Wheel in the History Room; which is built to 1/24 scale and was the largest water wheel in the southern hemisphere in 1898.

There is also an extensive library of genealogy for family researchers and a large library of Tasmanian History. Entrance to the history room section is by gold coin donation.

Check out our range of St Helens accommodation, Break O’Day Region accommodation, North East accommodation and East Coast accommodation. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
