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.[1] The main manor was built in 1829-1830 in a Georgian style.[2]

It has been World Heritage listed with sister property Woolmers Estate since 2010,[3] and it is also listed on the Tasmanian Heritage Register[2] and the Australian National Heritage List since 2007.[4][5]


Brickendon, like most Archer estates, is named after a location in England - in this case, the village of Brickendon in East Hertfordshire.[6]
