My 2 boys spent ages on The Amity. They had little listening devices that they learnt many different facts from. It was an awesome shop to climb about on and they were able to do it independently.

Enjoyable visit. Good audio guide giving explanation of ship. Some degree of fitness needed to access all the areas of the ship.

This is a great way to learn about the colonial settlement of Albany. It focusses on the journey from Sydney of the convicts and soldiers.

Friendly staff. The tour is interesting you can pay for a audio, talks you around the boat getting a feel as to what it was like. You have to experience below deck and how crapped the living conditions were!!

If you feel like stretching your legs after a long drive, that's the thing to see. Boat was closed but the warden was kind enough to let us in. Great pics too if you're into photography.

The Brig Amity replica is a must see when down in Albany. It is inexpensive and the guide is just so helpful and kind. if you go, make sure you take your camera and your kids because the kids will enjoy going inside the Brig Amity and learning about its history.

Loved visiting this little ship. You can pay for the tour to go inside (we didn't) or just walk about the top which was great.

I don't think that the replica has sailed but is has been built and rigged faithfully to the original. It is well located on a main road near the water and tours of the interior can be had during the day. At all times it is possible to access the deck and it is well lit at night. If visiting... More

Involved in the establishment of Brisbane, Albany and Perth, this little brig punches above its weight ... Get the guide (Henk) talking about his personal history ... adds so much more to the visit
