St Helens is a fishing and beach resort town on Georges Bay, on the north-east coast of the state of Tasmania. It is the largest coastal town in the region.
St Helens is on the Tasman Hwy, which tracks the eastern coast of Tasmania north of Hobart. It is around two hours drive from Launceston, which is also the closest airport.
St Helens has pretty white sandy beaches, rocks covered with spectacular orange lichen and crystal clear water.
