Overview

Highlights

St Helens Point Conservation Area in north-east Tasmania features extensive sand dunes and is popular for surfing, fishing, beach walks, boating and bird-watching. There are also good camping sites. The sand dunes and ocean beach of St Helens Point are a short drive from the township of St Helens. There are several good walks at St Helens Point and certain sections where it's permissible to use dune buggies. Various walks take you past outcrops of rocks and offer beautiful views of the fishing harbour and sweeping beaches. St Helens Point also has wheelchair access and toilet facilities.

While you're in the area, visit Binalong Bay, a small holiday resort town well known for its rock and beach fishing. St Helens Point is around a two-hour drive from Launceston.
