Nedlands

Nedlands is located between Crawley and Claremont and bounded by the Swan River and Stirling Highway. The land was bought by Colonel John Bruce in 1854 as an investment for his son, Edward. The land was referred to at the time as Neds Land. Some 29 years later the son visited the area and he used the name Nedlands, as it appeared on his inheritance documents. Despite early interest, development in this area did not occur until the 1910's and 1920's
