This region of Tasmania is actually quite well known for its delicious local produce, so stopping for a tasting or two is definitely one of the top things to do during your stay. Visit the Holy Cow! Café to sample their world famous cheeses and ice creams, try the award winning produce at Eureka Farm, delight in the fresh cherries at the Cerise Brook Orchard, and pick up a few bottles at the gorgeous Priory Ridge Wines Cellar Door.
Being located on Tasmania’s wild east coast has meant that St Helen’s is home to some truly magnificent natural sites and attractions. In particular, we recommend checking out the nearby Bay of Fires, the Peron Dunes, Halls Falls and St Columbia Falls, Mt Paris Dam, and the Evercreech Forest Reserve. There are plenty of walking and cycling tracks in the area, particularly around the Blue Tier, Mathinna and Weldborough areas.
If you’ve got the kids along for the ride, we’re sure that finding things for them to do is going to be high on your list of priorities. Fortunately, St Helens has plenty of family friendly attractions on offer. Play a round of mini golf at the Cerise Brook Orchard & Family Golf, take them to one of the many playgrounds in the area, watch some BMX racing at the Falmouth track, treat them at Choc-A-Lolly sweets, or any number of other activities.
What if you want to take it slow and learn more about the history or culture of the St Helens area? The good news is that you have plenty of opportunities to do so, including: Gallery Parnella (which features ever changing exhibitions) and St Helens History Room (which is home to some extensive collections detailing the history of the region). Plenty of the buildings in the township (as well as the surrounding towns) are also quite old.
If you happen to be travelling when the weather is fine, we’re sure that you’ll be wanting to hit the water. Swim or surf on one of the region’s many beaches, book yourself on a fishing charter (marlin and albacore are abounds), try your hand at fly fishing on the Scamander or Ansons Rivers, throw a line in from any of the beaches or jetties (without need for a license), or take an eco tour to learn more about the water life that is prevalent in the area.
Why not complete the experience by playing a few holes on one of the local golf courses? Scamander River only has 9 holes, but the course itself is quite beautiful and very well maintained. St Helens Golf Club has 18 holes and offers peaceful surrounds as you play. And St Marys Golf Club also has 18 holes that have a unique layout (the grounds also house a horse track, football and cricket oval, and lawn bowls green – give them a try, too!).
