We present a detailed study and results of new Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) observations of supernova remnant SNR J0527-6549. This Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) object follows a typical supernova remnant (SNR) horseshoe morphology with a diameter of D=(66$imes$58)$pm$1~pc which is among the largest SNRs in the LMC. Its relatively large size indicates older age while a steeper than expected radio spectral index of $alpha$=-0.92$pm$0.11 is more typical of younger and energetic SNRs. Also, we report detections of regions with a high order of polarization at a peak value of $sim$ 54 per cent $pm$ 17 per cent at 6~cm.
