The Brig Amity is a replica of the ship used to bring convicts across from Sydney, and who subsequently began the first settlement in Albany in 1826 under Edmund Lockyer.

A great little piece of history allowing people of all ages to explore and experience what it was like for the shipmen back in the day. Being able to go all over the boat in every level with an audio guide really dove into the past. A lot of fun for all ages.

The Amity is a replica of the first vessel to colonise Western Australia. It is full size and can be walked on to show the cramped conditions the early convicts and settlers endured from the Eastern States.

This authentic reconstruction is a must-see. Three decks to view with an excellent audio commentary it brings alive the history of the men who came to settle Albany and how they managed. Highly reccommended

Not expensive at all! Just the price as much as a coffee! With a sense of the history of the convicts that came to Albany. With an idea of what life was on the Amity back in the day. Don't miss out on this site.!

I didn't think I would enjoy this attraction but I was wrong. The 'phones' that you get with the commentary about The Brig are informative without being long and boring. Well worth the trip.

This is an excellent exhibit, the replica is a real must see and the tour is well worth the few dollars. Great to learn first hand how Albany came to be .
