Replica of the Brig Amity, Albany
(4.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We loved our exploration of the Brig Amity. Wandering around the replica was extremely interesting and the audio tour helped to compkete the picture. Definitely worth the $4 (concession). 
  • An wonderful audio tour of the replica is a must whilst in Albany. Beware the low ceilings and bulkheads whilst below decks!
