St. Helens is one of the most popular seaside holiday destinations in Tasmania. As the largest of the towns that align the east coast, you will find all of the amenities that you will require here as well as small cafes, restaurants, bakeries, clothing stores, resorts, and other small stores that sell local produce. The hostels in St. Helens are located just off the main street, close to all of the downtown action and all of these amenities.

You can lounge around on the beach and soak up some of the sun, go fishing, boating, canoeing, surfing, camping, hiking, and snorkeling. You can take a short trip down the road to visit Binalong Bay or if you are after more spectacular, large white sand, rolling beaches, head over to the Bay of Fires which runs the entire way along the coast from Binalong Bay north to Eddystone Point. The bay was named after the local aborigine fires that were seen off shore from the explorers' ships when the white settlers discovered this region of Australia.

On the weekend, head down to the local pubs and get to know some of the local Tasmanians that either live in St. Helens or are from the city areas, taking a break on their weekend. It is a great place to take some down time and chill out, but still large enough to have all the luxuries that you may want or need on a quiet beachside trip.
