What a find! And dog friendly too.
Stayed a night in the Old Farm Cottage which has been so sensitively restored and renovated - wonderful ambience.
It was comfortable with all necessary conveniences leaving as much original detail as possible.
Exquisite fenced rear garden (with a beautiful little church!) was perfect for our dog to wander in.
So peaceful. Lovely host.
Can’t wait to return to spend more time and explore the farm and walks.

What a wonderful experience, the history alone of the 7th. generation owners and operators is amazing, and all the historic convict building, many still in use. Saw sheep shearing and walked the to the beautiful river bordering the property.
Well worth a visit friendly hosts make you welcome and comfortable
The walk to the associated "Woolmers" was also great with lovely gardens and historic buildings. Woolmers was "commercial" and lacking warmth.

Someone recommended we visit Brickendon on our recent trip to Tasmania and I’m so glad they did. It was fascinating to walk around and see the convict built buildings and discover the history. We did briefly visit the garden as well, but being winter, there was not as much to see. Will have to head back down sometime in spring. Really enjoyed our visit!

Bird droppings everywhere, including on the bed inside the original Archer cottage. Dead possum in the shearing shed. Cats eating birds. Lights not working.
All in all for a $14 entry fee the cleanliness was well below par.

Hidden gem. Loved the colonial visit. On arrival make sure you watch the introduction video. It makes it a better experience because you feel like ‘meet’ the generations of Archers. We had come from doing a tour of Woolmer house (which has a wonderful cafe/restaurant) and then a walk around the gardens was an excellent way to spend our time. The cottage accommodation is also an absolute treat for couples and families.

Absolutely fantastic to see if you like history and stepping back in time. The video on the Archer family was very informative and well worth the time to watch. Such an amazing family. Thank you.

We thoroughly enjoyed looking around Brickendon, and getting a sense of the history of the place. we hadn't realised previously that it was open to visitors. We did the recommended walk from Brickendon to Woolmers, where we we very disappointed by the lack of signage and facilities.

Stayed in Coachmans Cottage overnight when visiting Evandale for the day. Beautiful little double storey cottage, with own small garden and access to the huge historic main garden. Romantic and interesting trees and flowers. Cottage genuinely old with steep stairs, comfy beds, self contained and old furnishings. Cosy fire and living rooms. Children loved it.

Brickendon is awesome and should be done jointly with Woolmers to understand the whole families past and current status. Wonderful place and in valuable to Tasmania past and present. Still run by the original families.

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. It was so uninteresting and lame I can't believe it's a tourist attraction. This is not an attraction.
