Replica of the Brig Amity, Albany

4.4
#11 of 49 in Things to do in Albany
Replica of the Brig Amity was built in 1975 to commemorate Albany’s first settlers, who arrived from Sydney in 1826. The settlers were part of a British Army expedition, led by Major Edmund Lockyer, who became famous for rescuing Aboriginal Australian women kidnapped and enslaved on the offshore islands by local sealers. Lockyer’s courageous rescue cemented the good relationship between native tribes and the European settlers. The full-size replica of the famous brig was designed and built as the focal point of celebrations held in honor of the 150th anniversary of the settlers’ arrival. Guided tours of this iconic attraction are available daily, but keep in mind that advanced bookings are required.

Where to stay in Albany

While virtually free of large hotels, Albany does offer visitors a vast selection of guesthouses, motels, and rental apartments. Many of these are conveniently within the city center, perfect for sightseeing. If you prefer to stay closer to the beaches and a bit farther from the center, the suburbs of Middleton Beach and Emu Point are the places to go. Also on the coast, the Collingwood Park area is the best choice for golfers, with the 18-hole Albany Golf Course just around the corner.
