Experience the Callington Mill at Oatlands, Australia’s only fully operational colonial windmill. Built in 1837, the Callington Mill offers visitors a fascinating insight into our enterprising colonial past, producing locally grown flour as it was ground in the colonial period.
Set within the beautiful village of Oatlands, which boasts the largest intact Georgian streetscape in Australia, the Callington Mill, with its sails gently turning in the breeze, provides the unrivalled experience of seeing the mill working first hand in an authentic heritage environment.
Oatlands is alive with convict, military and settlement history, and offers visitors a range of professionally guided and self-guided tour options, including:
The Millers Way – includes a tour of the Mill tower.
The Executioners Walk – a tour of the Oatlands Military Precinct.
Oatlands Town Tour – unlocking the stories behind the sandstone.
Heritage buildings have been reinvented as cafes, antique shops and galleries, showcasing unique Tasmanian craft, including pottery, knitwear, children’s clothing, jewellery, paintings, fabric and baked goods created by skilled artisans.
Oatlands also offers great accommodation choices from grand Georgian B & B’s through to gorgeous self contained cottages.
