Brickendon is a World Heritage site, probably one of only a few in the world that is owned by the original family and still operates as a farm. The old buildings remain and you have the chickens and ducks wandering around. You get a good feel for convict history and it is a complete opposite to Woolmers, another World Heritage... More

Brickendon offers historic intact farm buildings and the beautiful homestead gardens of a farm that has been owned and run by the same family for 7 generations. When paying, be sure to ask to see the short DVD before you start looking around as it paints a fascinating historical and contemporary family portrait and whets your appetite to also visit... More

Great to see an original working farm from the convict assignment process. It is still basically in original untouched condition which is where its value lies. World heritage significance.

We stayed in the Gardner's Cottage. A very good breakfast was provided with toast local jams coffee and cereals. A wonderful place to walk around and the history of the family that has owned it for nearly 200 years is very interesting

After visiting Woolmer's we were advised to also find time to visit Brickendon Village. The buildings are beautiful and the home is lovely. It is still being lived in so we were only able to view from the outside. The gardens are green and serene. the church and cottages on the grounds were a delight to behold.

Brickendon Colonial Farm Village is well worth a visit. The Archer family has opened up part of their farm for tourists to visit so that this unique part of our history can be preserved. There is open access to farm buildings to wander through and a good audio visual presentation from an ABC documentary that explains the relationship between Brickendon... More

We were able to wander around the farm village late on Sunday evening and again early on Monday morning, and we were fortunate to have the place to ourselves due to the lateness/early hour. The village is delightful, photo opportunities abound, the animals are friendly (including the cats who accompanied us on our explorations). The signage explaining the significance of... More

Don't bother visiting in winter. I felt embarrassed that overseas visitors would turn up at this property and its so unprofessional and unkept. I was frankly flabbergasted. We had to pay $15 on a cold July day and handed a map. Great....couldn't get in buildings, not given any advice except drive across the road to get to the village. You... More

I am in utter awe that people actually enjoy visiting Brickendon. I can't believe they charge $12.50 entry fee for this rubbish. It was literally an old farm. Nothing exciting, nothing interesting. Nothing worse seeing. Inside the boring buildings were just farming tools. Honestly I can never get the 30 minutes I spent there back and it makes me sad.... More
