About Naturaliste

Our region has a fascinating history, with one of the earliest fleets to our coastlines being a French expedition commissioned by Napolean which navigated the area from 1800 to 1803.

Led by Nicholas Baudin in two Corvette ships called ‘Le Geographe’ and ‘Naturaliste’ the aim of their mission was to map the coast of New Holland (now Australia).

With an existing restaurant & cafe ‘Geographe’ located in Coles Bay on the beautiful Freycinet Peninsula, we are now proud to add another restaurant to our ‘fleet’ in St Helens, and to call it ‘Naturaliste’.

Like the early explorers, we also hope to make our mark too, but instead of achieving it from gathering information on the early people, plants and animals of New Holland to change Europeans perceptions of these foreign lands, our mission is to provide a cafe, restaurant & bar which harks back to our history, and which locals and visitors alike love.

Featuring vintage drawings of the unique marine life of the area, our cafe, restaurant and bar will showcase the best of Tasmania’s seafood, meats and fresh produce, and of course our exceptional wine.
