ST HELEN'S

FIVE STAR ACCOMMODATION

ST HELENS

 

St Helen's is located at the western side of Georges Bay at the southern end of The Bay of Fires.  St Helen's is the largest town on the East Coast of Tasmania.  There is an abundance of good quality accommodation and award winning restaurants in the area.  Many adventure tours operate from here.  Being a fishing port, fresh fish is in plentiful supply.  The town hosts many events including the Suncoast Jazz festival during the last week in June every year. The image on the right is Beauty Bay at St Helens.
