If you are coming during winter, you will find that the gardens are not in bloom, but the amazing 180-year-old trees are a feature. Tasmania is a temperate climate, and the plants are normally in hibernation during the colder months. The Farm Village is also a little quieter as we move some of the animals into other paddocks to spell them ready for spring growth. We do, however, feed the animals each morning at 10.15 am, and the buildings are all open for you to explore.

Brickendon has a number of interesting options for group tours and school groups. As a World Heritage Site we can offer our guests a unique Tasmanian experience. We are very happy to work with you to make sure your group has a wonderful time.
