The mill tour is definitely the highlight as the town isn't dying it's dead! Sad to see a town that has closed down and is up for sale. Still mill tour is very informative with upfront exposure to raw engineering. Can't wait to see if the flour we purchased lives up to its organic heritage and price.

A mill that has been restored to its former glory,buildings and outhouses around it too have been lovingly restored too. Plenty of history to be seen and enjoyed, feeling of stepping back in time. Got some great photos.

We took a detour off the highway to check out Oatlands and were charmed by the beautiful old buildings throughout the gorgeous town and to our delight could see a huge old windmill dominating the skyline. Callington Mill's huge sails were rotating majestically and are a thing of beauty when watching them from ground level. We had a close up... More

We felt transported into history when visiting the mill and surrounding areas. Waht a beautiful little town Oatlands is.

As a collector of windmills I couldn't miss out this impressive one, which must be the most Southerly in the world?. Didn't take a tour, but it was working on the day we visited. Oatlands itself is also worth a wander.

The windmill is worth a look,it has been very well restored to it's former glory.We did not do the tour as we have been to many mills back in the U.K. where we live.Probably worth doing the tour if you have not seen a working mill before.As expected there is a gift shop and coffee shop as well.

Stopped off here on our way through as the mill stands out against the skyline as you are coming into town. The information centre located at the site is handy and it's great to see the work done to restore the mill to working condition today, selling produce in the information centre. Had a coffee and scones while we were... More

The history of the mill and the fact it has been restored to again function as an operational mill - to me - is fascinating! The surrounding buildings also offer an interesting insight to the mill history and are also structurally beautiful. I loved all the sandstone of the town as well.

On our way from Hobart up to Launceston and stopped at the Information Centre and found this amazing Mill. The village of Oatlands is interesting generally and quite laid back but the Mill stopped us in our tracks. We were able to join a guided tour although you can look around yourselves but the talks were interesting. There are several... More

Although the mill has been rebuilt internaly it stil retains the charm and history of yesteryear. We tried scones from the cafe and brought some of their locally produced flour. Could not believe how good the flour tastes. Our guide gave us sample and I reluctantly tasted it only to find it has a distintive flavour which accounts for the... More
