Add Oatlands Historical Society Museum, Tasmania – to your list!

by Leisa Cooper, CAMPS Researcher Whilst out checking some sites and taking photographs of the Southern Midlands of Tasmania, I came across the Oatlands Historical Society Museum at the entrance to the town.  The museum doubles as the town’s Information Centre and is a treasure trove of the area’s history.
