Information

A full sized replica of the brig "Amity" that sailed from Scotland to NSW and then again to WA with convicts and cattle. This visitor exhibit is located next to the museum and the old gaol. Free to enter, walk on deck. For a few dollars you can go below deck and inspect the quarters. You receive head phones that allow access to the information about cargo, sleeping quarters and general conditions on the ship.

The original ship was built in 1816 in Saint John Mew Brunswick Canada. It was named Amity meaning friendship. In 1826 the ship was hired by the British Government to transport 21 soldiers and 23 convicts and support staff to construct a new settlement. The ship had an active “ life” until it ran aground after a heavy storm off Flinders Island in Bass Strait in 1845. The replica was built to honour the 150th birthday of when it was built.
