June 15, 2019 Saturday turned out one of those fine clear sky mornings often typical of Tasmanian Winter in some parts of the State. No wind and almost no cloud (until mid pm) made it a great day for another walk. So we decided that, as we had to go to town for bread etc., we would drive out to St Helens Point and do the 3km loop walk. In fact it checks out on Google Maps as 2.7km for the loop but with side detours to the various vantage points we actually covered 3.5km by the time we returned to the car.
St Helens Point
We drove to the Burns Bay Boat Ramp and after being confronted by a car park full of boat trailers, set off along the path to walk via the Point to Beerbarrel Beach. Here you emerge into another car park and follow the gravel roads back to Burns Bay. Along the way area few vantage points to small beaches and inlets and very different environment to the Tasmanian Rainforest walks.

You reach St Helens Point after about 15 minutes and get a magnificaent view out to sea to the East.
Now turning more Southward you pass another rocky section and then reach Beerbarrel Beach and a short walk down to the smaller of the two beach areas here. Beyond this is a view over the larger beach and Southward down the coast.

After returning to the car a short drive back towards the Southern side leads to the lookout over Mouruard
