Overview
St Helens is the largest town on the east coast of Tasmania. Located on the Tasman Highway (around 160km east of Launceston), it is one of the fastest growing areas of Tasmania with a population of 2,173 in 2011. Named after the town of the same name on the Isle of Wight (England), its history is rooted in whaling, fishing, mining, shipping and timber. The first European to explore the St Helens area was Captain Tobias Furneaux who sailed up the coast in 1773. He named the southern point of Georges Bay, St Helens Point.
