Brickendon Historic Farm and Convict Village

Part of Tasmania’s World Heritage Convict Sites, Brickendon Historic Farm and Convict Village is located just outside Longford, in northern Tasmania. Built by William Archer in 1824, the village is still owned by his descendants.
You have a rare chance to see the convict-built Gothic chapel, Dutch barns, chicken house, blacksmith shop and tool shed. There is a four-hectare (10 acre) historic garden for you to explore. Close to the Georgian homestead, there are garden beds featuring soft plantings of roses and perennials to complement the house’s historic façade. Walk along the paths to outlying features including the orchard and original shrubberies. You can experience the ‘garden rooms’, each with their own mood and ambience.
Stand beside the 1830s English and exotic trees including oaks, elms, cedars and pines, sourced throughout the world. Connect with the property’s 19th Century beginnings as you walk along the carriageway. Children will love feeding animals or trying their skill at gumboot tossing. Overnight guests at Brickendon can stay at a number of historic farm cottages and have free entry to all the attractions.
Longford is about a 20-minute drive (27 km) from Launceston.
