Facilities wise this spot is excellent. Easy access drinking water (you can't stay connected though), flushing toilets, clean BBQs and a few tables, some with shelter. The dump point is tricky to find as it is not in walking distance with a cassette. Anyway, it's in William Street opposite Wellington Street and on your left if travelling north from Hobart. If you pass a church, you've missed it! Best to get a map from the tourist office.
Allow lots of time to walk around the township. It has the best collection of Georgian houses in Australia. The oldest building is the convict built old courthouse. Be sure not to miss the "Doctor's House". A photographers delight. If you are interested in old stone buildings - about 140 of them, then we suggest you get the brochure Let's Talk About Oatlands. A couple of pubs and a good RSL means you wont have to cook! Lots of history about Oatlands on this excellent page. The Central Tasmanian Tourism Centre is located in High Street. The main tourist attraction would have to be the Callington Mill - easily seen from the rest area. We found it fascinating as it is both steam and wind driven. There is a brilliant photo of it showing lots of moss and stuff on this page.
