Travel back in time and experience how it really was in the "good old times",- young and old can walk and climb the ship and see for themselves how small ships were and how difficult it must have been to travel in the olden days - it's a real "hands on" experience to be on the Amity and you can...

When I first saw the Brig Amity, what amazed me first was how well she looked, despite being located in a very public place with no security. Had this been in other cities, I'm sure the local yobs and vandals would have made their mark, but no, not here in Albany; she looks glorious! I love taking long exposure night... More

Don't just look at the Brig Amity from a distance, get a ticket and go on board for the self paced audio tour. It takes you back in time as you follow an enjoyable recount of the ship's sail to Albany. You have to manage some small step ladders down to the low roofed lower decks but well worth the... More

A visit to Western Australia is not complete if you have not toured southwest, so goes the saying. However, you haven’t seen southwest if you have not visited the stately Albany. Into my sixth visit to Albany in October with family, my first impression of Albany is neither its white beaches and rugged coastline nor its Whale World Museum, but... More

This was a great tourist attraction. To be able to climb through and all over the ships was great. This attraction is also free of charge.

All members of our travelling group enjoy sailing and we couldn't resist having a look at the replica boat. The helm actually moves the rudder and the anchor winch works too. Be careful if you have kids who are climbers. You may have to extract them from the crows nest!

An accurate reconstruction of the Brig Amity that Major Edmund Lockyer arrived in Albany upon. A small fee payable but the proceeds go to maintaining the vessell and helping the Albany Historical Society. The attendants (Volunteers) are very knowledgeable about the history of the ship. Well worth a visit.

We were pretty disappointed that it was not open on a sunday so we could only walk around the topsides. It is a great replica and as others say would be good in a more sea setting rather than a park but maintenance would be an issue. Worth a look great photo oppourtunity

Its ok if you wanna see a boat sitting in a park. I would prefer to see it where it is meant to be... in the sea!

We could only see it from the outside, and they are doing renovations on it at the moment. Not sure when it will be open.
