Oatlands, as you know, is where Naomi lives and I’ve visited the town often over the years.
Oatlands is one of Tasmania’s oldest settlements, it was on the main route between Hobart and Launceston and features many buildings built from convict made bricks. In fact, it is said that Oatlands has more sandstone heritage buildings than any town in Australia.
Until recently Oatlands was a well kept secret, it is off the highway and people travelling between Hobart and Launceston often by passed the town. Now it is becoming a popular tourist destination and Naomi tells me that the RV camping area is almost always full now, even in winter, unheard of years ago when I was a regular visitor. Oatlands gets really cold in winter.
So here are some of our photos of Oatlands and some links to other posts we’ve written about it. I especially recommend reading Naomi’s post “A Little Bit of Hollywood in Oatlands” for some great photos of the town and the actors in the film “The Nightingale”
