We visited Brickendon Estate after our stop at the Brickendon farmstead across the road. The gardens they've created there in the families' long residence are amazing! The main house is very beautiful, but as it's a private residence you can't go in. You could easily spend an hour just strolling. So peaceful.

If you are lucky enough to be invited to see the house gardens then it is a visit well spent in a glorious historic garden but it is polite to remember that this is the family's private grounds and stick to the paths.

A very good experience for us especially we are living in city. We stayed at the Garden Cottage, a cozy, comfortable with well equipped cottage. Felt like home inside and we liked the real fire place very much. Warm & romantic! The animal feeding time in the morning brought us lot of funs too!

A very warm welcome from one of the owners who gave us a comprehensive history of the family estate. The farm buildings were very interesting and the garden at the main homestead were truly beautiful.

Brickendon Estate is still a working farm with many historic farm buildings. The buildings are spread out but easy to walk around. The big drawback is that almost none of the building have anything in them and there is a lack of information about the buldings in the buildings. The chapel is easily the most interesting building in my opinion.... More

W enjoyed everything about our stay here. The cottages are wonderful and as you are on site you can wander around in the evening or go and eat in Longford or cook in the cottage. We enjoyed feeding all the animals and looking at the interesting buildings especially the tiny church and the shearing shed.

Theres a great little video to watch about the family. If yopu... More

We left Hobart with our friends to stay a night on this famous early colonial working farm, prior to visiting nearby Evandale the next day to see the famous Penny Farthing Races. The cottage is a rustic copy of the real thing, perfectly comfortable, with verandah overlooking the farmland and river, our own 3 horses, dozens of tame chickens and... More
