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 are Tasmania’s Top Tourism Town!  For more information about our area click here:


Why St Helens Tasmania to live?

A lifestyle like no other.  Beaches at your doorstep and mountains to walk or ride in your backyard.  Within close proximity, there are some of the world’s renowned landmarks to explore. Only two hours from Launceston to access ‘city’ like shops and services.  Break O’Day is fast becoming the desired place to not only holiday with Wotif voting one township, Scamander, as one of its Australian Towns of the Year in 2019 and St Helens being recognised as Tassie’s Top Tourist Town in 2020, but a much wanted destination for young families through to retirees as the place to establish their forever home.
