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.








You can also take the Transperth bus no. 950 from Elizabeth Quay bus station and drop-off a few meters from the timber boardwalk of the boatshed.

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.

In the 1940’s it was bought by Nattrass family, who had purchase the property behind the boatshed. At the time, the boatshed was purchased for an additional 5 pounds when the family bought the property. The family then built a larger, more modern boatshed around the original. 

In 1972 Roland Nattrass gave the boatshed it to the Perth Sea Scouts patron, Ron Armstrong and in the 1990’s ownership passed to Barry Krollman a keen sailor from the Royal Perth Yacht Club.

In early 2001 the boatshed was put up for sale and was purchased by Perth Lord Mayor Peter Nattrass – the son of Roland Nattrass. It was extensively renovated by his sons Tom and Nick Nattrass and, on 6 February 2004, the newly refurbished Crawley Edge boatshed was re-launched by triple solo-circumnavigator of the world Jon Sanders and single solo-circumnvaigator David Dicks.

Today, the boatshed sits prominently on the Swan River, a nostalgic reminder of the river’s past.
