Immerse yourself in the Australian outback 
Exploring the vast redness of the Pilbara or casting a line into the calmness of the Exmouth Gulf.

The Giralia Ranges consist of the latest Cretaceous (68-66 million years old) Miria Marl in the Southern Carnarvon Basin which is a source of world-class fossil material. It has yielded the world’s richest ammonite (an extinct group of cephalopods) assemblage of this age.

Wander Giralia's History

Go explore our museum at the homestead, see how the jackaroo's lived in the original nissan hut and wander the old blacksmith workshop. The history of Giralia dates back to the late 1800's.

Leaving the homestead follow the 32km dirt road to the Bay. Such access to our coastline is for guests camping at the homestead or the bay. The road  provides 4DW easy access. Try your hand at catching spotted cod, brim, mangrove jack, prink snapper, flathead, golden travelly, giant travelly and more. Or grab a hook and go down on low tide and for mud crabbing.

Bird Watching in the Outback

Within the mangrove forest at Giralia Bay is the southern limit for Mangrove Golden Whistler and Mangrove Robin. Additionally Giralia Bay, although not on the Peninsula is very important for its seaward zone of thick-trunked tall trees changing to low forest then stunted thickets. Collared King sher has been recorded here and it includes a 2020 Shorebird Survey Site.  Check our bird list in the office for recorded sightings.

Picnic at the sand dune while the sun sets

Take a drink and wander up Sunset Strip or the Big Dune trail towards the sand hill.  Stay for the sunset from a view unlike anything else...
