Brickendon Estate is a farm estate located in Longford, Tasmania. It is one of the two main ancestral homes (with Woolmers) of the Archer family, prominent local pioneers and politicians. Founded in 1824, it consists of a village and manor house, as well as 465ha working farm. The main manor was built in 1829-1830 in a Georgian style.
Brickendon Estate was one of the first (and most successful) farms in the area. It has been lived on and operated by direct descendants of the Archer family since it was established. It’s now a popular tourism destination offering farm activities, heritage accommodation, garden tours, and wedding/functions venue.
Brickendon, like most Archer estates, is named after a location in England - in this case, the village of Brickendon in East Hertfordshire.
