St Helens is approx. 113km from Coles Bay, it will take you a bit over an hour to get there. With a population of over 2000, there is a little bit more shopping to be had than Coles Bay and Bicheno.
Here are just a few idea to get you started;
– Up there in our top 3 day trips is to Pyengana . A further 27 km, (about 25 mins drive) from St Helens and well worth the trip, particularly for cheese lovers. Pyengana Dairy Co. and the Holy Cow! Café is one of our favorite places to go when we need a day trip out of the Bay. (Don’t forget to buy a beer for Priscilla, the pig!)
