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.

Did you know!

This small beach town was the claimed birthplace of the sultry Hollywood screen siren of the 30s, Merle Oberon. She was actually born in Mumbai of a mixed race family, but persisted with the myth of her birthplace until her death, even though she never visited the town.
