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.

  • Along the way to Hobart, this park is truly "curious" in Tasmania. Reported by guides this mill is really interesting. When we arrived we were not possible a guided tour.

  • We were only going to drive through for a quick look, we ended up staying longer than expected as it was a very nice little town. Worth having a look around.
  • Callington Mill, a well known landmark is a fully operational flour mill. Interesting walk through the grounds and well maintained gardens. Worth a visit.
  • A historical landmark here. This mill still in operation until today. I took some photographs here. Unfortunitely no tour to the mill was available due to the inappropriate time at my arrival. The garden is well mantained and the majestic windmill is good to be captured in print.
  • 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.
