St Helens, standing on Georges Bay, is home to Tasmania’s largest fishing fleet. Tracing its roots back to a little 19th century fishing town, today it is known as the state’s angling capital. Every season, droves of anglers and tourists descend on the coastal town for the wonderful game fishing opportunities and, of course, the delicious food! St Helens is popular for its fresh seafood, especially oysters. Try taking a boat ride over the sea to spot whales and seal colonies.
