About


est: 1940 as one of the 1st settlements there are significant historical landmarks in this zone 

Crawley is a suburb of PerthWestern Australia, located within the City of Subiaco and City of Perth. The earlier name of the locality was Crawley Park.

It was named by an early landowner Henry Charles Sutherland, whose mother's maiden name was Crawley.

It is home to the University of Western Australia, the state's oldest university.

Grassy, riverside Crawley is a popular spot for swimming and boating, as well as for picnics around Matilda Bay. Trails lined with fig trees lead through Kings Park and the Botanic Garden, and along the shoreline to the Blue Boat House, a popular spot to watch the sunset. Cosy cafes and upscale yacht club eateries dot the area, and the nearby University of Western Australia hosts talks, plays and art shows.






Riverside features



Statue, shed and University tower from the east

The Crawley Edge Boatshed is a well-recognised and frequently photographed site in Crawley.
 It is thought to have been originally constructed in the early 1930s. It has changed hands several times, and after being refurbished in the early 2000s, it was re-launched by triple solo-circumnavigator of the world, Jon Sanders, and single solo-circumnavigator David Dicks.

A statue called Eliza is also located in Matilda Bay in the Swan River, in Crawley. Created by Tony and Ben Jones, the statue was unveiled on 15 October 2007, to commemorate Crawley BathsPerth's prime competition and recreational swimming venue from 1914-1964. Eliza is often dressed up in clothing to represent special occasions.

The Royal Perth Yacht Club re-established on the shore of Pelican Point also in Crawley, after moving from its location in Perth, in 1953.





Historical landmarks

The jetties were built in the late 1940s to provide people access to deeper water for swimming and recreational purposes

A well-known bronze sculpture that is located at the site of the former Crawley Baths – Eliza is displayed just offshore from Mounts Bay Road and depicts a woman preparing to dive.  Matilda Bay Reserve is a recreational parkland between Hackett Drive and the river. It includes Pelican Point, which is an important breeding sanctuary for migratory birds.  Matilda Bay is believed to have been named after the wife of John Septimus Roe, Matilda (née Bennett).




World War flying boat base

The Swan River at Crawley was utilised before the war as a flying boat landing location

During World War II, the bay in the Swan River at Crawley was the location of a flying boat base, for Patrol Wing 10 which had to leave Surabaya in Java. The base was also known as Pelican Point due to the feature in the river being the defining and identifiable location from the air, at the end of the bay.

After the war and decommissioned as a base a move to re-develop and expand the base was opposed

It was also the start point for The Double Sunrise squadron which was formed in 1943 to keep the air route between Australia and the United Kingdom open.
