My first visit to Perth's Blue boat house

Updated: May 29, 2020

My first visit to the "Blue boathouse" was during the storm that left over 50,000 homes in Western Australia without power when the remnants of ex-Tropical Cyclone Mangga hit the coasts of WA on May 25th 2020.


During this trying time and motivated by my wife as well as some pictures from the media, I decided to visit this famous landmark that I had somehow driven past but never stopped at in my 14 years of living in Perth.


Lucky for us, there was a bit of a break in the storm and we didn't get completely soaked, just "a bit" wet.


On this day I also learnt that the famous "Blue boathouse" is actually called "Crawley Edge Boatshed".


In the odd chance that you're not familiar with this landmark, this is my take on what it looked like the day I visited it for the very first time.
