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.

  • Beautiful Australian history. Fantastic friendly staff. Great food and coffee. Gift shop well stocked. Highly recommend. 
  • Observing from the main road the unmistakable silhouette of this mill we opted for a restful stop before continuing their journey South. The mill has been restored, is fully functional and serves several farmers in the area. The village is really cute and worth a stop for a bit in this area.

  • "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.
  • Working flour mill with great flour and wood-fired bread available. The whole town is full of beautifully restored sandstone cottages and houses. Well worth a visit. Also good trout fishing and camping on shores of Lake Dulverton
