Brickendon Estate tells much of the history of early settlement in Tasmania. A visit tells the story of the Archer family, Assigned convicts, Free workers and the beginnings of Australia's pastoral and agricultural industry.

Brickendon is one of Tasmania's oldest farming properties, settled in 1824 by William Archer, the farm has been continuously operated and lived on by his direct descendants ever since.

In July 2010, Brickendon Estate was listed as a World Heritage Site being part of the Australian Convict Sites World Heritage Property, along with neighbouring Woolmers Estate.

The two Estates are regarded as the most significant rural estates in Australia having the second largest number of convict workers and still retaining a living history from early European settlement to the present day.

The rural landscape, heritage gardens, collection of convict constructed buildings, family history and memorabilia are all to be enjoyed by visitors and cottage guests.
