Smeaton - Picnic at Anderson's Mill




Fancy a picnic by a trickling creek next to a hundred year old mill? Anderson's Mill sits in a picture-postcard setting on the banks of Birch's Creek at Smeaton. Classified by the National Trust, it's a magnificent five-storey bluestone building featuring a grand iron water wheel standing today much like it was over a hundred years ago. It's the perfect place for a picnic.

Opening Hours and Cost:


Anderson's Mill is open on the first Sunday of each month from 12 noon until 4 pm (entry and guide by donation). The Mill grounds may be enjoyed at any time.

Great place...what untapped potential just sitting there, beautiful setting. Of great historal interest, as well as an engineering marvel, would be great to see it open more often, a cafe to enjoy a coffee in the sunshine overlooking the creek
