Oatlands Town and The Callington Mill_Part4

From Hobart we drove heading to Oatlands town. I made some homework checking out what to visit at each town. Most of the time I will refer to my fav blog TravelFolio for this journey. You can see beautiful photos and tips visiting to TAS as well..

We reached Oatlands town and it was very windy and cold that time.. Oh yes it's summer.. yet very cold. We were like jumping in and out from our vehicle trying to avoid from the coldness haha.. it was slightly drizzling too.

Here in Oatlands town we coming for the WindMill.. Many travel blogger said this is a must see if visiting Oatlands. So here we come.

The Callington Mill is actually a flour processing factory using a traditional way. Using the wind to spin the fan to move all the machines. I did not managed to enter inside but more info of this place you can visit here..

At the back of Callington Mill there are a huge pond.. So many geese and ducks swimming around. The wind blowing hard this time and it getting colder. My big boy is such a hero not wearing any jacket.

We met some Malaysian who stayed in TAS for more than 40years already visiting this place too.. They are so friendly and even invited us to join them for their relatives wedding In Melbourne if we have more time  here in Australia. How kind.. but we are not able to do it of coz and just thanking them for kind enough to invite us.

Next post the journey continues..
