Giralia Station Stay

Beach Camping

Do I need a 4WD to get down to the Beach and Creeks?


Yes you do require a 4WD.




Whats the condition of the road to the beach and creek?


The condition can vary due to the seasonal conditions (Rainfaill). It is maintained and graded 3 - 4 times a year. But as we say its not a highway. You need a 4WD. If you wondering whether you can get your caravan to a site at the beach or the creek please call the homestead to enquire, we do have specific sites down there fir caravans but we need to know a little more about your vehicle. Call us 0899425937




What type of fish can I catch?


In the shallow flats of Giralia have great sight casting for Trevally, Queenfish, Bream and Whiting. Giralia is a great place to launch a small boat to explore the small creeks. The small creeks hold Mangrove Jacks, big Cod, Threadfin Salmon, Bream, Dusky Flathead and Trevally. Around the western headland is a great place for trolling lures for Spanish Mackerel. The reef area here also holds Bluebone Tuskfish. Blue mannor crabs and big mangrove mud crabs run at certain times of the year. Prawns run on the Western side of the Gulf around Roberston island - you will require a throw net.




Where do I launch my boat? Can I moore it?


Boats can be moorded along the beach and in the creek. The tide does go out so your boat will be left on the mud, so its a personal prefrence. You can launch your boat within the vicinity at most sites - its up to you.




Are there sandflies down at the Creek and the Beach?


We strongly recommend you prepare yourself against midgies (tropical strength repellent, citronella etc). Like the rest of outback W.A., sometimes we have those annoying sandflies and bities. Usually they appear after a rain. Aswell as over the counter repellents like bushmans and so on, there are some really good home remedies if you search on the internet - here are a couple tried and tested by our guests! 50/50 Dettol and Baby Oil, mixed in spray on bottle Beer/Listerine/Epsom Salts - 1/3 of each, mixed in spray on bottle




Are there showers and toilets at the beach camping?


No, Giralia Bay's beach camping is completely self sufficient. Therefore you must bring a chemical toilet and your own water. Or you may ring in advance and can rent a chemical toilet from the station while you camp at the beach. Note* Please do not take any shells or leave anything behind, as we are trying to conserve the local funa and flora of GIralia Station.




Chemical toilet camping at the beach FAQ


If youre camping down at the beach you MUST have a proper chemical toilet for your site, you must not go to the toilet in the bush.




Kayaks and Canoes


Currently we do not have Kayaks and canoes but hopefully in the future we will have some for rentals. But feel free to bring your own to use down at the beach.




Where do we clean the fish we have caught?


Please clean and gut your fish and crabs down at the beach as we currently do not have cleaning facilities at the homestead, but are hoping to in the future.




We have a dog, is that allowed? Where do we camp?


We accept friendly dogs at both camp grounds, however, we reserve the right to terminate a booking if a dog is deemed dangerous or a menace to other visitors. If you bush camp dogs must be on a lead at all times and picked up after. If you do have a dog with you, you will be camping at the lower camp ground. Dogs are not allowed inside our rooms due to health and hygeine regulations.

Yes but lighting of fires in the open air within the Exmouth Gulf Coast (Giralia Bay and Homestead) for the purpose of camping or cooking is prohibited on days of Very High, Severe, Extreme or Catastrophic fire danger forecast (this includes gas cooking appliances).

Go on to BOM or Willy Weather and look for Exmouth/Learmonth. Giralia tides are 30 minutes later than Exmouth.












Can we bring a horse?


Yes, but pls contact us first. We have horse yards and riding trails. Paying guests may keep a horse here free of charge, but yards must be mucked out on departure. We accept no responsibilty should any horse injur itself or escape whilst at Giralia.




Can guests get WIFI or telephone anywhere on  the property?


One of the downsides of outback life can be the problem of communcation! At the homestead area, there is no access for guests to WIFI, the reason being is we are remote and therefore get very limited intenet allowance. By remaining very conservative with our internet use, we usually have enough data to get by, however, this means that UNFORTUNATELY, we do not have the luxury of sharing WIFI with our visitors! We have looked into different ways to overcome this situation, but havent been able to find a solution yet. If you have a telstra phone, you will get reception over near the budget accommodation. If you are staying at one of the beach or creek sites you will get Telstra phone reception aswell (the signal comes from Exmouth).
