The first European settlers arrived in the 1840s, initially sheep runs and harvesting timber. The historic Woodlands Estate was also erected during this time by WJ Clarke. The original building is preserved and can still be visited today.
Through the years, more people began to arrive in Crowlands and in 1914, the Navarre railway was constructed so that the community could travel to nearby towns.
Today, Crowlands is home to facilities including a community hall, recreation reserve, a few hotels, and a church. The establishment of a historic walking trail in 2012 helped boost local tourism. Visitors also come to sample the many excellent wines on offer at Dogrock Winery.
