This is currently closed but you can still walk around and view the mill and surrounds. There is a park nearby with a clean BBQ and lovely lake across the road! This town is a must see and it’s great to walk around.

Beautiful Historic Inn and Wind Mill
Nov 2019
I came here last Friday after spending a few days travelling around Tasmania. I was super impressed by the history of this place and all the other buildings in Oatlands. I even met a local saying you are so lucky living here. It was closed by my husband came across it and we had a good walk around. Such beautiful buildings and the plaques on the fence give you an idea about the history of it being built and who built it. It's quite easy to get an idea on what the mill is about. I fell in love with Oatlands and wished I had stayed another night. It's a beautiful little town with gorgeous english looking buildings. Being a history buff I enjoyed walking around. Yes, it was cold but we survived. If you do visit Oatlands make sure you visit the museum and park. I saw some swans and cute ducks. It's really worth just having a look at the historic buildings if the mill is closed.

Carrington Mill is as worth a visit! Beware that at the time of posting works are on the way to do major repairs.
Oct 2019
Carrington Mill is a prime example of early colonial engineering. It never made it as a commercial viable productive windmill possibly due to its English design not being suitable to Tasmanian conditions. The restoration of this windmill is a credit to all trades involved and is on going due to the high maintenance of the harsh conditions in Oatlands and numerous moving parts involved to keep this "machinery" going! This season (2019) the "fan tail" had to be replaced by local trades men and it is good to know that local apprentices participated so when it is due again some one local can do the job!!

ITS CLOSED UNTIL 2020 AUGUST
Sep 2019
We saw this mill on a tv program and decided to come to Tasmania and include it on our 'must do' list of things to see and do.
IT IS CLOSED ...... Silly me we did not check up if it was open , we just assumed it would be . .
In any event we were happy to see the mill from the outside and to see the rest of the town . On enquiry we were told the mill will reopen next year when it will be used to crush grain to make whiskey and a whole revamped center will emerge in the space.

Disappointed
May 2019 • Friends
We had seen recent television advertisements and heard through friends of this working Mill and decided to visit the site. We checked the website prior to arriving and it stated it was open from 10am to 3pm on the Sunday. Unfortunately, when we arrived at around 1:30pm the Mill was not operating and no sign of life apart from a few people working on some welding project. One person acknowledged us by a simple wave and then went back to his job. We stood around for several minutes and then shrugged our shoulders and left. No signage on the entrance gate or anywhere else. The Mill itself was barricaded up with locked gates. It would have been good to have prior knowledge that it was not open. A simple sign on the gate and updated website is beneficial to visitors. One plus is the magnificent wetlands area directly opposite the Mill site. It was teaming with black swans and plus the public toilets are clean and modern.

Congrats to the locals
Feb 2019 • Couples
Great little town where the locals obviously love the history and are great custodians of a bygone era. Loved the mill it was so
beautiful and well maintained. The walled gardens and grounds were delightful.
I recall having watched a tv show about how it was a working mill but sadly it is now closed, I assume because operating costs are higher than maintenance costs. Very pleased that there is still the opportunity to be able to walk around the beautifully maintained grounds.
Congratulations and job well done to the local volunteers that preserve and maintain this little town and it’s history.
This gem is only an hour or so from Hobart and provides visitors with a great early settler experience.
Day trip from Hobart or passing by on your road trip this town provides great cafes and restrooms and camp/caravan grounds to accommodate short or longer term visitors.

Eerie loneliness of the place...........but found the Wooden Spoon Cafe!!!
Mar 2019 • Couples
It was a blustery day and the eerie feeling as you walked around the grounds of the Mill, didn't make it feel any warmer. We did find the Wooden Spoon Cafe and had warming creamy hot chocolate (with marshmallow) and a hot flat white. Food looked good too, but too early for lunch.

Place is closed.

Disappointingly, we planned our visit to Oatlands largely to visit the mill only to find that it's closed. Apparently there are plans for it to reopen as something else. At least we found some good food at the local bakery.
