Also known as Ampasimanolotra and Vohibinany, Brickaville is located along Route nationale 2 (RN 2), 105 km south of Toamasina (the primary seaport of the country) and 220 km east of Antananarivo (the capital). It is also situated alongside the Rianila river.
Its main industries revolve around sugar.
In 2002, infighting between groups aligned with outgoing President Didier Ratsiraka and his successor Marc Ravalomanana led to the important Route 2 bridge over the Rianila being blocked, choking commerce between Toamasina and Antananarivo.
