Tasmania’s north-east is the warmest and sunniest corner of the state. The surrounding hills, combined with warm ocean currents, produce a microclimate that makes the St Helens region a warm and inviting place. Regarded not only as one of Australia’s most beautiful natural settings, but also as one of its most idyllic, you wont find cleaner air and water than the likes of which surround the Bay of Fires.
During the summer months, take a lazy stroll along one of the many sandy beaches, watch the waters for schools of dolphins frolicking in the waves, or simply loll on the pure sands and enjoy the sunshine.
When winter arrives it’s just as sensational to rug up and walk these isolated beaches. As white-crested waves pound the coast, keep your eyes on the ocean, you may be luck enough to spot the fluke of a humpback or southern right whale during its migration.
This idyllic, beautiful slice of Tasmania is just the place to get back to nature and soothe the soul.
