Things To See & Do

The best thing about St Helens is that everything is so close, yet so far away. Within an hour of St Helens you can be deep in the rain forest, swimming in the Bay of Fires, barrel rolling down Peron Dunes or surfing the waves at Four Mile Creek. St Helens and the Bay of Fires region are a perfect base to explore the East Coast, Freycinet, Bicheno, Scottsdale and beyond.
