Abstract: Let $ \Lambda $ be a complete metric space, and let $ \{S_\lambda (\cdot ):\ \lambda \in \Lambda \}$ be a parametrised family of semigroups with global attractors $ \mathscr {A}_\lambda $. We assume that there exists a fixed bounded set $ D$ such that $ \mathscr {A}_\lambda \subset D$ for every $ \lambda \in \Lambda $. By viewing the attractors as the limit as $ t\to \infty $ of the sets $ S_\lambda (t)D$, we give simple proofs of the equivalence of `equi-attraction' to continuity (when this convergence is uniform in $ \lambda $) and show that the attractors $ \mathscr {A}_\lambda $ are continuous in $ \lambda $ at a residual set of parameters in the sense of Baire Category (when the convergence is only pointwise).
