Holidays in St Helens Waterfront

Holiday Travel Guide
St Helens Waterfront

Relax on a grassy reserve or take a seat at a restaurant overlooking George’s Bay to enjoy the views of St Helen’s marina precinct.

From the mouth of Medeas Cove to Colchis Creek at the northern end of town, the St Helens Waterfront precinct is one of the most picturesque parts of St Helens. Here, the peaceful water of the protected George’s Bay is lined by soft, green grass and picnic tables are scattered around the Percy Steel Reserve. Stroll along one of the many jetties that jut into the water or take a seat at a waterfront restaurant to watch the water change colour as the sun disappears.

While most of the fishing, diving and sightseeing charter boats leave from the other side of George’s Bay, the waterfront precinct is a great place to watch private yachts and boats docking and sailing on the bay. Spend some time on the jetties on the waterfront to observe locals cleaning their boats, fishing and enjoying the sun.

Take a seat at one of the restaurants in the waterfront precinct to enjoy Tasmanian wine and seafood. The region’s cool climate produces fantastic pinot noir, chardonnay and sauvignon blanc varieties. Ask to try local oysters, which also thrive in the cold conditions. Enjoy the views across George’s Bay as you relax with some of Tasmania’s finest produce. Coffee, lunch and light snacks are also available in the area.

Pack a picnic with ingredients purchased from stores along St Helens’ main street, adjacent to the waterfront, to enjoy on one of the many picnic tables scattered throughout the waterfront reserve. Spread out on the grass that almost meets the water’s edge. Families with young children will love the sheltered water of George’s Bay as well as the children’s playground.

Find St Helens Waterfront on Marina Parade and George’s Bay Esplanade, in the heart of the town. There is free parking lining the water and the waterfront precinct can be visited year-round.
