Humbug Point Recreation Area is situated northeast of St Helens on Tasmania’s east coast.
Bushwalking and birdwatching are popular in the Humbug Point Nature Recreation Area (1620 ha). The heath attracts a large number of birds, including yellow-tailed black cockatoos, wattlebirds and honeyeaters. Sea birds include the spectacular white-breasted sea eagle, gannets, petrels and even the occasional albatross.
In spring the area is ablaze with colour. The distinct yellow cones of Banksia marginata are a common sight.
There are good camping and picnic areas. Take the Binalong Bay road 10 kilometres north from St Helens.
