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.

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
"A much loved landmark" Throughly enjoyed the guided tour of the Callingtom Mill Complex, an authentic working 19cen Tower Mill, in beautiful historical Oatlands. The tour includes climbing to the top of the windmill. Having the amazing engineering feat explained, along with the production of flour, in a mill that was built in 1837. Quite remarkable. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and informative. We were able to ask questions, which were answered intelligently and professionally. We were not rushed, or pressured. This mill has many Tourism Awards for Excellence. Well worth the visit. The Information Centre includes, The Mill Keepers Cafe, where we enjoyed a coffee and snack. Attractive lunches are also a available. Well worth with the visit.
A very interesting tour of the windmill, showing how flour used to be manufactured.
