Callington Mill, Oatlands
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.

The warm air surrounds you, like an inviting hug that soon becomes an unwanted embrace. The world around you looks yellow from the fires nearby, everything looks like someone put a filter on the quaint town. The only sounds you hear are a creaking sign that ways in the wind, the barking of a dog, the whistle of wind through the trees and stone houses, the turning of this lovely mill and your own footsteps. Welcome to Oatlands.
A brilliant piece of history, and still operating!
