The Amity replica can be seen in Albany, Western Australia.

The Amity sailed from Sydney on 9th November 1826, carrying a party under the command of Major Edmund Lockyer, who had orders to form a settlement at King George Sound.

After a difficult voyage, the first half battling through heavy weather in Bass Strait and the second enduring the summer heat of the westward run, the brig reached Princess Royal Harbour on Christmas Day.

180 views. And zero everything.

I retired to Frankland River 10 years ago, after living in Perth since 1971; originally I was from Shropshire, England.
Most of my work, is done in the lower south of Western Australia, mainly Frankland, my garden, and Albany. However, I do visit my family who still live in Perth, and try to take the opportunity to photograph other places.

    I am surprised that it has slipped everyone’s attention, you may like to add to the nautical group and traditional wooden boats group too

  • Thank you very much for the suggestion Kala. I’ve just added it to Nautical, as I’m already in that group, but I don’t have enough pictures of wooden boats to join the other.
