St Helen's is one mile from Seddonville,and the same distance from Mokihinui ,near the mouth of the river of that name. It is 28 miles distant from Westport,and forms part of the Karamea Riding of the County of Buller, in the electoral district of Motueka,and the provincial district of Nelson. The population of St Helen's was not separately recorded at the census of 1901,but was evidently included in the 331 persons returned as residents in the Mokihinui Valley,in which it lies. Besides its flag railway station,St Helen's has a hotel and a store, where the business of the Post Office is conducted. The surrounding country is largely covered with bush,but many of the residents have small homesteads, some of them only a few acres. St Helen's is on the south side of the Mokihinui river.
