At St. Helens, Tasmania.

We left Devil's Kitchen and continued to travel up the highway and stayed at Swansea for several nights then onto St. Mary's at the fairly new NRMA Caravan Park for several days.

St. Helens is the largest town on the north east coast of the Island, on Georges Bay.  It's known as the game fishing capital of Tasmania and is also well known for it's oysters.  St. Helens is about 160 km from Launceston which is not that far away obviously.


The flat area of the Caravan Park in St. Helens on the east coast of Tasmania.  These buildings are cabins which are rented out like a motel room but cabins have facilities for cooking.




Photo below is part of the park on the flat, most of the park is up hill.




Above photo is of the amenities with a wall this end which means you have to walk to the other side to enter.  They are lovely and clean and have fans going all the time plus music.

Outside the camp kitchen below and two photos of inside the camp kitchen.  There is a separate building that is the games room.

    1. I should imagine they are lovely inside being new. Stayed in one once in when travelling, rather cold but was in a cold place at the time.

  4. They do look exceptionally well set up - a far cry from the caravan parks I remember as a child.

  6. That is a most impressive caravan park.
    Obviously the citizens and council of St.Helens is a civic proud town.

    1. The town itself is not too bad, a lot has been done, is being done to improve it for the tourists.

  9. That's the nicest camping area I have ever seen, is it privately owned? Someone certainly takes pride in the maintenance of it.

  10. Nos encanta acampar Margaret. Hoy día los camping tienen todas las comodidades. Tenemos caravana, pero ultimamente viajamos más con la moto y solemos alquilar bungalows en los camping.
    Buen miércoles.
    Un abrazo

    1. Hello Laura - Happy travels, be safe on your bike, the two of you.
      We sometimes just take our car and stay in motels but of recent time we take the caravan.

  11. Precioso los murales que hay en las paredes de las cabañas. El área de servicio tiene buenos equipamientos.

    Tan sólo una vez en toda mi vida me he alojado en un bungalows, estaba en una zona de pinares en un pueblo marítimo.
