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

Oatlands is so pretty and the Callington Mill area, right in town makes it even more special. It is worth the quick stop. We bough some of their flour mill on site and made the best pancakes with it! Make the detour, it is worth it!

One of many quaint little stops between Hobart and Launceston, you can have a wander through the grounds and pick up some tourist information as well as wheat milled onsite. There is a cafe on the grounds where you can enjoy a Devonshire tea.

First night in Tasmania slept in a authentic cottage "the Jenny Wren". And visiting the callington mill and the village. A definitely must do. Beautiful restored town and mill with a big history. And beautiful people who will tell you about the history.

This mill is also in the same location as the town's information centre. You can wander around to most areas free of charge. You can do tours of the operational mill and accompanying buildings for a fee.

The whole town is well worth the drive to see the beautiful scenery and buildings, but the Mill is really a must-see. Such lovely heritage that is so well preserved and you just wish you could see it running as it did back in the day. Don't pass through town without taking the time to stop and see it.

Thank Junior-Nomads
