Oatlands Gaol House

Campbell Street, Oatlands TAS 7120

The Oatlands Gaol House is heritage-listed building at Oatlands in the Tasmanian Midlands. Oatlands is an hour's drive north of Hobart (84 kilometres/52 miles). Oatlands was established as a military garrison in 1827 and was the primary military outpost in inland Tasmania. Over the next decade, close to 90 buildings were constructed in the town using convict labour, including the court house, soldiers' barracks, watch house, and officers' quarters. Today, the town has one of the largest collections of intact Georgian architecture in Australia. Completed in 1835, the Oatlands Gaol was designed to hold over 200 prisoners but was never fully occupied. Used as a military Gaol and municipal prison until 1936, the complex was closed and largely demolished in 1937. The Gaol's main use since the 1950s has been as the site of Oatlands' municipal swimming pool. You can still see the Gaol's crumbling sandstone walls and the intact Gaoler's residence, which is rumoured to be haunted. A conservation project is being planned for this historic site, beginning in 2007 with an initial restoration project for the Gaoler's residence.

Heritage Highway

Oatlands, Oatlands TAS 7120
The history of the Heritage Highway region is intrinsically linked to the extraordinary road builidng that occurred in Van Diemen's Land in the first half of the 19th century. An overland route through the Midlands was pioneered by the Surveyor General, Charles Grimes as early as 1807; remarkably it is the route we continue to travel today. By 1819, there was a rough and winding track of about 160 miles between Hobart Town and Port Dalrymple in the north, well worn by cattle, sheep and carts. It was the task of a Major Thomas Bell of the 48th Regiment to construct a road from the Derwent River to St. Peter's Pass near Oatlands. Known as Bell's Line of Road, it would ultimately become part of the finest highways in the Australian colonies. Some of Bell's original road can still be seen from the Heritage Highway passing through the Southern Midlands. Look out for dirt farm tracks winding around and across hilly, rural properties. As you journey through the historic heart of Tasmania, spare a thought for the convict road gangs, many of whom laboured under appalling conditions to open up the interior of a fledgling colony whose very existence remained in the balance....
