Excellent ! Ship was bought by Scottish family from Canadian owner and sailed to Albany. Trip took 6 months. It is an exact replica of the original Amity which was lost at sea. Well worth a visit and try and talk to Hank who is very knowledgeable about the history

Hubby wanted to see this attraction. We went in the afternoon but it was closed so went back next day when it was open to visitors. The guide was very informative and as no other people were there at the time enjoyed hearing about his maritime adventures. The history of the Brig is quite remarkable and we were awed by... More

We visited the museum and the brig with our little kids. They have been very interested in the ship. Our 5 year old son wanted to play the captain all the time. It is very well rebuild and you can easy imagine how travelling was in ancient years

It was very interesting looking over the Amity. Such a small vessel to carry so many people and supples across the big oceans.

I was restricted to the car when I visited here as it was raining, but it looked like a few people had parked their campers and were wandering about. Great Views of the ANZAC PEACE PARK and Harbour

We went in summer, so being close to the sea enjoying cool breeze whilst all the kids ran amok and enjoyed themselves, was a nice break for us. My kid made friends with other kids there and went exploring, and the 'Captain' entertained us all with his antics. Just seeing how they lived on the ship was interesting enough for... More

So lovingly made and looked after. The guide is quite a character and certainly knew his stuff. Worth a look

My husband was very inpressed and spent a good hour moving around the brig and chatting with the volunteer. He found it very interesting and I enjoyed a quiet sit under the shrubbery, having not enjoyed a very short visit to the nearby museum
