Located in Northern Tasmania, Brickendon Estate is a remarkable example of a farming property dating from the 1820s. The property has been continuously farmed by the descendents of the Archer family for six generations, who have ensured that the convict built farm complex, Georgian country house and formal garden remain largely intact. The estate is of outstanding national significance for its association with the convict assignment system and as a designed landscape which provides a record of continuous farming practice.
The historic working farm of Brickendon, situated on the outskirts of the town of Longford - 20 kilometres from Launceston - is open to the public from Tuesdays to Sundays. Brickendon Estate was included in the National Heritage List on 23 November 2007.
