The Perth Crawley Edge Boatshed (or commonly known as the Blue Boat House) is really the most highly Instagram-able place. It is also known as the Blue Boat House…. When you’re there, expect a queue for a turn to have your own photo shoot. Everyone wants a shot with that house and post on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat etc.
I admit.. I was there during this trip and took this photo and post on FB !
And according to the staff at the Pan Pacific Perth that I was staying at, it is usually Singaporeans and Malaysians who asked how to get there.. why huh 🙂
Some history of the place:
At first, I did some research in the internet when I was planning to go there and thought it would be really difficult to get there….
Actually it turns out to be pretty easy.
For me, I cheated. Due to the lack of time (it was my last few hours in Perth), I took an Uber taxi from my hotel (in Pan Pacific Perth). It cost about AUD10. I think it is worth it since I was not driving at this time and it is really easy and fast to get there from downtown CBD and not expensive.
I think the main point is this. It is right close to Perth down town area and really not that far or ulu. So don’t worry as long as you are in Perth downtown area. In fact it will be cheaper than my own uber trip as downtown Perth (eg Apple Store Perth) is much closer to this place than my hotel. Ha.
Now if you are driving, your main concern will be where to park. Some would suggest some sailing club nearby but actually I noticed most people just park along the side road (next to a condominium) just opposite the boat shed. That road is called King’s Park and the condominium name is 2 Kings Park Avenue, Crawley, WA 6009
Alternatively, you can park along the Crawley Avenue or Park Avenue. I am not saying this is the right thing to do but usually you will not take more than 15 mins at that place, so it should be park at your own risk…..
And then you cross the road carefully, okay. Very fast traffic and then a bicycle track just outside the entrance to the bridge leading to the Blue Boat House.
Finally you can always take a bus. There is a bus stop just right next to the entrance to the Bowe Boat Shed and the bus numbers that go there are:
You can take bus 950 from the Elizabeth Quay which is like, right in the middle of Perth CBD.
