I was amazed that there was a mill in this town. We could see it, but we had to find it closer. It is historic as well, as it was built in 1837. In those days it worked perfectly. Eventually it could not work any...More

I thoroughly enjoyed walking around and photographing these lovely old buildings. Sadly the windmill wasn't open and I'm led to believe that it hasn't been open for quite some time. However the Millers cottage, the stables and the granary were all open. Everywhere was clean...More

We made 2 trips to see the mill. The first was on a public holiday and so when it was closed we were surprised as there was a lot of people around wanting to also see it. So we went back a day or two...More

A lovely 19th C town featuring a still-working Windmill fully restored and surrounded by beautiful sandstone stables, granary etc. well worth a visit. We stopped in the middle of a rainstorm and after a cup of coffee, the weather cleared enough for us to explore....More

Grew up with this building an empty shell. The refit is amazing and great to see it as a working mill again.

Visited Oatlands today. Very disappointed that the mill has closed. The restoration of this beautiful site cost a lot of money and one would have thought bought tourists to the area. Can’t believe that no one would run this

We were lucky enough to visit this mill today. Although, sadly, the cafe and the visitors’ centre are not open, our visit was one of the highlights of our drive around this part of Tasmania. We were lucky enough to be able to chat with...More

Regrettably the visitor centre and cafe are closed as of October 2017. You can no longer do tours of the mill. There is an exhibition of how the mill works and its history. Given that the mill only opened in 2010 after its very expensive...More

We parked at the rear of the mill near Lake Dulverton and walked through the complex towards the Main Street. It is really worth a stop, a very historic building along with most of the rest of the town. The mill has a shop and...More
