Brickendon is a great view into the farming and convict era of the early 1800's in Tasmania. The guided tour was excellent. Even some of the original buildings are still being used for farming, in conjunction with the World Heritage listing.

Adored Brickendon - well worth the visit if you are passing. Some beautiful architecture, the style of some of it was totally unexpected and very European. What an insight into the lives of our forebears.

The village farm is a working farm with an amazing history. Part of the Archer family story which includes the Woolmer Estate. Definitely worth a visit. Fantastic historic buildings.
