Crawley is a suburb of Perth, Western Australia, located within the City of Subiaco. The earlier name of the locality was Crawley Park.
It is home to the University of Western Australia, the state's oldest and most prestigious university. During World War II Crawley was 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.
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 the waters of the Swan River, in Crawley. Created by Tony and Ben Jones, the statue was unveiled on 15 October 2007, to commemorate Crawley Baths, Perth's prime competition and recreational swimming venue from 1914-1964. Eliza is often dressed up in clothing to represent special occasions.
