St Marys

Urban

St Marys is a small township nestled beneath St Patrick’s Head, an impressive rocky outcrop in Tasmania’s North East.
The town is a 10-15 min drive inland from the coast, 600 metres above sea level and surrounded by hills, pristine forests and majestic lookouts with fantastic views of the coast below.
St Marys offers a range of accommodation, a craft gallery, bakery, shops and supermarkets, while the St Marys Hotel, built in 1916, is a feature of the town centre.
There are also some lovely old buildings along the main street including the original railway station, now a quirky museum of local relics and oddities.
From St Marys, visitors can drive up the Fingal Valley to the Evercreech Forest Reserve. (There’s signage to the reserve in the township of Fingal.) As well as its spectacular trees, ferns and mountain streams, Evercreech is home to the White Knights – the tallest white gums in existence.
St Marys is also close to Douglas-Apsley National Park with its beautiful forests, waterfalls and excellent bushwalks. The coastline is a short drive away via the Elephant Pass or St Marys Pass. Both roads hug the mountain and are popular for training cyclists.
St Marys is a 1 hr 40-min drive (128 km) east of Launceston.
