Oatlands: Population 540

At first glance the town of Oatlands can look like a sleepy little place with not much going on.  That is until you find there is a great little camp spot which places you in close walking distance to everything such as:

  • Dulverton Lake is full of bird life and stocked with Trout.
  • Callington Mill (1836) is a gorgeous working mill where you can take a tour - It has been fully restored after it was gutted by fire in the early 1900s and now makes organic flour the traditional way.
  • Visitor and information centre (handy if you want to get some info about the old buildings, there is also a Historical Walk)
  • Town and the local IGA.
  • TKO Bakery at the Kentish Hotel where you can get the best Scallop Pies ever made.

This is one of Tassie's hidden gems with many convict-built buildings in town and it is just loaded with atmosphere and history.
