Anglesea River Historic Boat Sheds
Circa:1916 -

The three boat sheds on the west bank of the Anglesea River, Anglesea, have significance as the only known-surviving early 20th century boat sheds in the Surf Coast Shire, and as a physical legacy of the importance of aquatic recreational pursuits in Anglesea from the 19th century. The central boat shed appears to have been built in 1916-17 to a design by the Geelong architectural firm of Laird and Buchan for the Bingley family of "Loma Larnee". The boat sheds are associated with the evolution and development of the locally-important annual Anglesea Regatta which formally commenced in 1910-11 and involved several events and particularly rowing, with the main event being the Grand Challenge Cup. This race involved representatives from the various houses of Anglesea, Gladstone (now Anglesea), Airey's Inlet and Torquay. From 1910-11, the AngleseaRegatta has been an important annual community event at Anglesea over the Christmas holiday period and continues to the present day. The surviving boat sheds are in poor condition and of moderate integrity.

In early 2019 the largest of the boat sheds was completely restored back to its former glory.
