St Helens — 3 nights

Overlooking scenic Georges Bay, St Helens is the largest town on the northeast coast of Tasmania, ranking among Australia's top destinations for recreational game fishing.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Priory Ridge and St Columba Falls Reserve. Venture out of the city with trips to St Marys (St Marys Cranks and Tinkerers & Seaview Farm) and Bay of Fires (in Binalong Bay). There's much more to do: stroll through Bay of Fires, take in the exciting artwork at East Coast Art Supplies & Gallery, look for gifts at The Shop in the Bush, and get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

To plan St Helens vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Brisbane to St Helens is an approximately 6.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. Traveling from Brisbane in September, expect St Helens to be little chillier, temps between 17°C and 4°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Tue) so you can drive to Coles Bay.
