Amazing replica of a boat originally built in 1816 in Canada. Hard to believe it sailed from there around Scotland and Ireland and through to Hobart via Rio De Janiero.
A very interesting history. Make sure you do the tour below.

What a delight! Historic, interesting. We had informative help from knowledgeable volunteer Trish. What good work all those involved have done. Snow brig Amity replica reminds visitors of the great feats of our forbears in making Australia what it is in the 21 century. Take the kids! .

Awesome, great for 12 and over. My kids loved laying in the replica bunks and listing to the audio information. We got great photos and enjoyed this experience. One tip, you have to climb down steep stairs, and this is not great for people with knee problems!

This is a fabulous replica of the Amity, for a gold coin voluntary donation you can walk on and have a look around. There was an extra charge to go below deck to have a look. We were happy just to experience the top deck. Lovely views , it's right near the town centre so an easy walk to get to.

Let the kids run all over this old ship and experience the thrill of (pretending to) sailing to the new world.

I found the information on the headphones very interesting as I was a first time visitor to Albany and learnt about the history of settlement there

I initially wanted to get happy snaps with the kids on the upper deck of the Brig Amity replica which you can do for the price of a gold coin donation. However, there is also a self-guided audio tour you can do below deck if you pay $5 for an adult and $2 for children: it turned out to be well worth the price. I learned a lot about the ship and Albany's history through the tour, and discovered how cramped it was to travel in sailing ships of the 19th century. In fact, on that point, if you're mobility impaired or have back issues, you won't be able to do this tour as there are tight spaces requiring you to bend over a lot and there are also steep ladders. The kids loved it too, although I was the only one that received the audio tour equipment which unfortunately meant the kids missed out on the narration: they had to hear it from me second-hand.

Good history to read about. Several houses displaying a lot of history. Worth the visit. Museum is free but donations welcome. The replica is free to go onboard to visit.

We saw it from across the street and is very impressive to see such a small ship being a great ship at that time

Visited the Brig Amity, we couldn't get onto the ship, as they are replacing all the rigging, but got right up to it, and could see around it. Views over the Bay are sensational as well.
