Info About Crawley Edge Boatshed
Thought to have been originally constructed in the 1930s though nobody seems to know exactly when it was built. It been rebuilt and repaired on a number of occasions, and has had lots of uses. 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.

Untuk mereka yang sukakan photography, lokasi bergambar di sini satu kewajipan kalau dah sampai Perth. Memang tak rugi. Banyak shoot menarik boleh anda ambil di sini, lebih-lebih lagi bila tiba waktu matahari terbit atau juga matahari terbenam.
Kami sekadar singgah dalam 30 minits sahaja untuk bergambar. Nasib kami, waktu kami tiba, tiada orang. Namun selepas itu, sekitar jam 5.00pm ramai turun ke sini untuk bergambar.
