This place is a credit to the family. It is fantastic to see so much of the early farm preserved and open to the public. As modern day farm owners, our children enjoyed seeing the village it took to run a property. The grounds are well preserved and you can get a real feel for how this farm operated.

It is astonishing that this little convict built village is still in such good condition. That it is so, long after farming techniques and technologies have moved on is a great credit to the Archer family. We were given an interesting couple of leaflets for a self guided tour and were lucky in this quiet, winter season to have the... More

This working farm is steeped in history. The many builijngs that have been preserved were fascinating and well documented in their use. Lots of animals (ducks, geese, chickens, cats) freely roaming about.

A family history built on the back of convicts but not forgotten by the current generation. A must see.

Incredible to find a place like this so unrestored and still upstanding! Love the way it looks like people left but nothing changed, animals and birds very tame. Good price, loved the dvd, what a fortunate family. Staff were great filling us in on extra info. Great place to spend an hour.

An under patronised gem not far from Woolmers. Original farm buildings, lots of history brought alive.

We didn't stay here but just visited one afternoon. As with the other family property, Woolmers, nearby, it's wonderful that this place has been kept as it is. The farm village is not all neat, tidy and sanitised; rather it has a wonderful authentic, working atmosphere, with many little treasures worth looking for. Thank you for this step back in... More

An extraordinary place, the very fact it has survived intact from its former life, and is still functional today. Lovely to see chickens kept traditionally and sheep and pigs. It is a time capsule. Very friendly reception.

A great start to our holiday in Tasmania. Really enjoyed the history of Brickendon, learning about the convicts, seeing all the different barns, the animals. No wonder it is a World Heritage site.

This property while still a working farm is most certainly a step back in time to the convict era. Fantastic buildings helped make this one of our favourite heritage destinations while touring Tasmania this month. Definitely worth a visit.
