Great way to see what life on a boat was like when travelling in the old days. When you look at all the stuff that was crammed onto it including people it was a hard trip. Well worth checking out

First stop of the day - we visited the Old Albany Goal - there is a small entry fee - worth the visit just to meet the lovely lady at the entry - she will give you a short talk about the goal, who was imprisoned there and other interesting facts. After the talk you get to wander around at... More

We saw this while driving on one of the main roads in Albany, so we decided to stop and stretch our legs. It's a boat in the middle of a little isle near a busy road. Okay place to stretch your legs and walk about but i personally wouldn't make it a must see location

There is a lot to see (other than the Brig) in this Historical Precinct and we spent a good deal of time there. It is relatively easy to get around and my two elderly companions managed it well. In October 2014 they had a wonderful display of post cards from soldiers in WW1.

For just a small donation you can board the replica boat and get a real sense of history. The real beginning of Albany.

Great to be able to crawl around a replica and feel what it would have been like, hear the history audio, and look at items. Was informative and fun.

Great time on board. Learnt so much. Staff excellent. Lay in the cabins below deck. Listened to the noise of how it used to be below decks. How they had some many people and livestock on board all those years ago in such cramped conditions. Really interesting , must do in Albany.

The recreation of the ship is authentic. The head phone narration brings the tales to life. Great for the kids and adults too. Very good price for admission. Setting is pretty, overlooking Princess Royal Harbour, Albany.
