Inspirock Rating:
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.

  • Lovely the Brig built in Scotland (I think) used for the transport of small quantities of livestock (if I'm not mistaken) then sold to the Government of the city of Sydney and after using it for exploration and travel, has been "parked" in Albany. Mind you I went to Albany to visit only the Brigantine, but already I was ... is still interesting

  • Crawl over shipboard life in the seafaring days for $5. Prominent location next to museum overlooking the bay. 
  • Located at the entrance of the city, this attraction is visible from the car on the princess royal road. However, do a detour takes only 5 minutes, time to do a photo and go around (unless you want to get in the boat, to which cases should fulfil the admission price).
