St Helens (including Georges Bay)
Largest town and holiday destination on Tasmania's East Coast
St Helens is a substantial seaside town located 166 km (via Scottsdale) east of Launceston and 36 km north of St Marys. It is the largest town on the Tasmanian East Coast. Its economy is dependent on fishing, timber and tourism. And, when it comes to tourism, the town prides itself in its warmth and sunniness - the result of a microclimate produced by surrounding hills and warm ocean currents. Consequently St Helens is warmer than Melbourne in winter and enjoys an average of 22°C in February.
