This Brig Amity is a full sized replica of the original vessel that sailed into Albany (then King Georges Sound) from Sydney back in 1826 with the first white settlers of the area onboard. It is located right on Princess Royal Harbour. Entry fee of $5 entitles you to get onboard with an audio guide and see what life was... 更多
A great little place to stop at and take some great photos. Close to the old Goal as well. You can purchase tickets if you wish to get a tour of the boat.
Being able to go over the ship was a wonderful experience and insight into life and travel on such a vessel. The commentary was very good also.
A good diversion form the 'mian museam'. helpful staff willing to give extra information and detail. Lots of information boards to read in the immediate surrounding area as well as on board.

For only $5 you get a fascinating audio tour with many interesting snippets of information. Plenty of doors, drawers and boxes to open below decks to keep kids happy too. Loved it!

I've decided they should charge more for entry into this, it's such a bargain. For your $5 entry, you get a self guided audio tour which takes all over the ship including down into the galley and bottom deck of the ship too. There's some amazing history here and the audio guide helped to understand the history of the Amity... 更多

I tried out a sleeping hammock, and sat at a meal table for a while imagining myself on a journey in this little ship. Lovely to be able to turn the ships wheel and see the workings of the rudder respond. It... 更多
