Employment Opportunities

Our community has an enviable work life balance that is often the main reason people move to our area.

Break O’Day is the home of one of the world’s most beautiful coastal areas, the Bay of Fires which has received international acclaim, as well as some of the state’s most scenic waterfalls and forests. Combine this with St Helens being the central hub for services on the east coast, it is clear that Break O’Day has it all, and that is what we were Tasmania’s Top Tourism Town in 2021 and runner up in 2021!  For more information about our area click here:
