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

We didn't have enough time (catching a plane!) to go on the indoors visit (about $20 I think) so took the $14 option to see the outdoors, we were told the rose garden was not in flower seasons, which we expected. The walk was nice and the buildings are beautiful but probably not quite worth the $14, specially when it's... More

I spent a couple of hours wandering around this lovely property on a beautiful sunny day and the views across the Norfolk plains were stunning. It is certainly a step back in time, and to read of the prosperity of estates like Brickendon due to the skills and labour of assigned convicts both men and women was of great interest.... More

We spent several hours exploring Brickendon recently and loved it. I recommend watching the DVD before you explore to better understand the history of the farm village and the families who established Brickendon and nearby Woolmers. The same family has been farming here since the 1820s and there are a lot of buildings to explore. This isn't a stuffy museum... More

For the $12.50 per adult entry fee you get the chance to go back in time and be part of a convict-built settlement which now has a world heritage listing. There are about 20 buildings to see including the old wool classing building and a stunning old church. Well worth the visit!

We were greeted with a warm fire in our cottage and as overnight guests given fresh milk, eggs, juice, bread, jam for breakfast. Cooking was easy with a full kitchen and feeding the animals and exploring the grounds kept us busy with family fun activities for several days. Peaceful and quiet nights were filled with farm noises and the sky... More

We arrived early and were able to help feed the ducks, chooks and pig. Whole family had a great time and the service was good too. Don't forget to visit Woolmers too. Such a great story.
