Oatlands - Cities, Towns and Localities
Almost midway between Launceston and Hobart, on the Midland Highway, promoted as part of the Tasmanian Heritage Highway, is the historic town of Oatlands.

Located on the shore of Lake Dulverton, Oatlands is the largest town in the Southern Midlands area, being the service centre for the surrounding farming community.

Oatlands historic past is evident in the many sandstone buildings, in fact it has the largest number of Georgian sandstone structures of any country town in Australia, with a large number that can be viewed in the Main Street. Much of the sandstone used for the buildings were quarried from the shores of Lake Dulverton, a man-made lake that is also a wildlife sanctuary. Today, Lake Dulverton Wildlife Sanctuary is designated an important Australian wetlands, noted as the only known breeding site for the rare Great Crested Grebe1.
