A far more interesting attraction than I expected. Great to be able to go below deck and have a look at the conditions that those arriving to our shores experienced. Good audio tour that provided information at your own pace. Well worth the $5.

Taking a tour of the Amity is a must - as is minding your head when you go below decks.The audio wands provided give a great insight into the history of the Amity and the conditions on board. Well worth a visit.

A visit to the Amity highlights to young people a valuable lesson in the hardships and bravery of English sailors in the early settlement of Albany. The brig is in very good condition and a great tourist stop. Interesting information is availble on board.

This is a 'must see' if you're interested in Australia's history. The ship is beautifully built as a replica of the Brig Amity. I accepted the hand-held sound description unit which one takes around as a "self-guide" to the 20 or so "stations" on the...More

Another tourist trap, but worth a visit just to see how the old sailors got here from Europe - and be damned glad that we can hop on a Boeing or Airbus. The old guys must have been really tough. There is NO way I...More

If you are in the area to visit the museum and the Old Prison you may as well come on board and check out the Brig Amity - only takes a few minutes
