Blue Boat House

















About




also known as Crawley edge Boat Shed 

The Blue Boat House or the Crawley Edge Boatshed as it’s officially known, sits on the Swan River just below Kings Park.

Despite simply being a boatshed painted blue, it is one of the most photographed location in Perth. On our visit, we had to queue to take photos of the boatshed and ourselves. We also read about the place being usually occupied with wedding photographers taking bridal shoots. So do be patient for your turn.


The Crawley Edge Boatshed has provided stunning backdrops for thousands of photographers around the world.

History


This iconic boathouse is accessible from Mounts Bay Road below Kings Park. Built in the 1930s, to house and shelter boats, it has changed ownership numerous times, as well as undergone various repairs and renovations over the decades after storms and floods. It was restored it to its former glory in 2004.

Following major works to restore it to its former glory in 2004, the historic structure was re-launched by triple solo-circumnavigator of the world Jon Sanders and single solo-circumnavigator David Dicks.



A stunning piece of nautical architecture, we think it would make the perfect boutique weekender (if only we had the money).
Alas, it’s just sitting pretty for the time being, causing people to stop on Mounts Bay Road, take out their cameras and capture its beauty.


History

It would, being built in the 1930s, have been designed for a pleasure craft of some sort – a sailing boat or rowing boats – that would have cruised the Swan River, past the Crawley baths and other boatsheds dotting the shoreline.
