Callington Mill is a historic tower mill built in 1837 by John Vincent, a successful local proprietor. Extensively restored in 2010, this is the only operating mill of its type in the Southern Hemisphere and the third oldest windmill in Australia. The mill site includes a windmill, granary, stable, miller’s cottage, and a mill owner’s house. Stop by for a guided tour of the Mill Precinct and see locally sourced flour ground using the same methods employed over 120 years ago. Visitors can also climb the mill’s internal stairs for a view across Oatlands village and the surrounding area, noted for a large number of well-preserved colonial sandstone buildings.

Love Oatlands and this mill is amazing. Fully restored and used again. Plenty of history and I had holidays in Oatlands over 50 years ago. Worth a visit for sure. Got some great photos. more »
Well worthwhile stopping here; enjoy the view as you step back in time to the agricultural era, watching the "dusty" miller ply his trade. This refurbished and fully working windmill is unique in the Southern Hemisphere!
Given a perfect duplicate wind wheel so that Don Quixote does not want to fight with it.
Lovely place, just for the sake of driving, stop here take a picture eat something in town. There are some camping space down the lake.
I , my wife, mother in law and two children (5 and 3 years old boys) have visited the Callington mill today. It is such a beautiful and educational place for children and myself as I only have subtle knowledge on windmill. It has a great garden and playground as well as a beautiful and magnificient lake. It is free to have a look around mill. I strongly recommend guided tour to the mill as you will get to go up all the way to the top of the mill and a very patient and kind tour guide will tell you its history and explanation on how it operates. My whole family absolutely loved time there. We also bought a big oats made flour as it taste totally different from the flour we buy in Melbourne. The flour taste sweet without a drop of sugar. We would love to go there again soon. Thanks a lot for accomodating us especially with my extremely curious boy. He said he forgot how the mill operates within 10 mins after all the tour. Lol. We are looking forward to visiting the callington mill soon.
Lovely landmark and u can join a tour that show u the windmill and wheat production
