We stayed in sweetcorn cottage for 1 night. I think we were the only guest at that night. The cottage was clean with comfort beds, and everything we needed! The bathroom was renovated and was warm and clean. We see stars at night and we...More

We got a $2 discount after mentioning we'd been to Woolmers just before. Very helpful to watch part of the DVD put together by the ABC about Brickendon and the family. It helped us to understand more. We loved the beautiful little chapel and seeing...More

I would thoroughly recommend visiting Brickendon. Even the entry building is interesting and redolent of the past. Wandering around you gain an insight into how a colonial land grant was worked and into what life might have been like for the convicts assigned to it....More

If you enjoy a bit of history then you will definitely enjoy a visit here. We took my elderly mum and she was able to walk around the displays and old buildings easily. They are all level, with just a few steps to negotiate. On...More

Perhaps not quite as fascinating as neighbouring Woolmers Estate but it provides a good counterpoint, especially as this is still a working estate. There are a good range of buildings to explore which provide insight into colonial penal practices.

To explain, Brickendon and Woolmers are both World Heritage listed farm estates, adjacent to each other, near Longford, about 1/2 by from Launceston, Tasmania. But they are separately owned and run, and are quite different (see below). Brickendon offers accommodation in a variety of old...More

This place is part of the Woolmers family history, we did this site after our Woolmers tour. This is a working family farm for the last 7 generations. It is worth a visit so you get more of the family history.

We called in here after visiting Longford looking for family history. It is an interesting collection of buildings - fascinating that it’s still in the same family generations later. Worth a look.

Great place to see how people lived and worked in the 1800’s, how they used and shared convicts. Still a working farm, sheep, chooks and ducks wandering around. Friendly sheep as you enter grounds, love a scratch.
