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. There's little precise record of the original, so it isn't an exact copy, but is based on the correct overall dimensions, and based on what we know of the style... 更多
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
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.
Really enjoyed our visit to the Brig. It was great to go down below and see the conditions that people travelled in. Word of warning - mind your head. very low cielings :)
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 .
