Beautiful, relaxing scenery, Highly Recommend.
"This place is a ripper. They are working hard to improve the aesthetics for what is already a great experience. They have grass sites and beautiful, relaxing scenery. There are some nice walks you can do and the drive to the beach gives you some great views and fishing as well as plenty of solitude. HIGHLY recommended. Our three kids loved it!"

What our Guests are Saying
"True Blue Outback Aussie Experience! "
"Giralia is the perfect stop for a wide range of travellers. Whether you've got all you're own gear and just looking for somewhere to park up or you want to put your feet up in a nice room Giralia's the place. We were 3 young guys just travelling with swags and the bush camp sites near the homestead were ideal. The toilet and shower facilities were really flash especially considering how remote you are, but they still have maintained the "old station look," with the corrugated iron etc which is all part of the outback experience. We were there in the middle of winter and warm showers were great. Also you get mobile reception which is unheard of in the bush! Denver and Jennifer are great hosts and go above and beyond to look after everyone plus they're great people to top it off! The reception area has a lot of really interesting information about the history of the station, School of the Air and the pastoral industry in general, all well worth the time to take a look at. The homestead accomodation is top class while still giving you a great outback experience which is what you want. We were also treated to a roast dinner and desert and couldn't fault it. There is also camping available down at the beach which is a great fishing spot so we'll be back again to stay for longer! Access into the station is easy and the road from the highway is in good condition for all cars."

"The Best Place on Earth"
"We were traveling and got stuck here with the covid thing.
Well we are so thank-full we got stuck within this paradise.
Weve had time to get to know the station stay, as well as the creek sites and beach sites. Ive had some amazing fish and mud crab catches, along with the most glorious sunsets by the fireside and the most peacefull nights under the stars, imaginable.
Yes the real is here.
Bring some spray if planning to go near the mangrove as sandflies live in the North West of Australia.
Easily Managable though just spray. I found Aerogard Tropical the best. Baby oil mixed with eucalyptus oil and some tea teee oil aint half bad either.
Both are good for the flies too.which are also potentially part and parcel of an outback experience.
If heading to the beach lower your tyre pressures and drive to conditions. The lower tyre pressures really help comfort levels on corrugated roads. Its rhe outback :)
Ive travelled the world and ive travelled Australia more than most.
The owners here are the real and genuine deal. They simply can't do enough to try to accommodate you.
For those few negative posters, I can only say you were the few that couldnt see the woodlands due to the trees.
Being real, it isn't the prestine, all but impossible within this environment, outside of paying $500 odd per night for some fake inderstanding of what things are really about.
It is however homely and clean as what can be and very comfortable, being as advertised with more than reasonable prices reflecting the outbacks reality.
Its certainly infanately more comfortable than it was for the shearers in the old days I would say, looking at the beds they used to sleep on, which you can see around in the old sheds around the homestead when doing a bit of exploring :)
What I see as so amazing about Giralia, is that magic experience, where you can get a real feel for what the outback is really about, being a little different from the norm. Above all, it gives opportunity to explore and understand such a unique place while being under the caring eye of Denver and Jennifer Blake, with the Blakes being generational owners of Giralia station.
An experience not to be missed, in my humble opinion."
"Wonderfully Relaxing and Far Less Crowded then Other Station Stays"
"Stayed in the ensuite accommodation which was really lovely. Being in the homestead, had kitchen facilities nearby and a lovely outdoor verandah to relax on at the end of the day. Felt really safe here. Explored the mangrove coastline as well as doing a couple of excellent walks round the property. Loved the big red dune area - and spotlighting was a highlight. The owners were really friendly and helpful and the display in reception was impressive. Loved the Fossil Find area too - must go back to explore more!"

"Two Weeks of Haven, Living on the Waters Edge"
"Had the best two weeks at the Giralia Station beach camp and finished up at the homestead for the last night .
No, not 5 star on the usual scale. But for a relaxing, clean and friendly stay couldn't get any better. The best 5 star stay I've enjoyed in many years. Much quieter and untouched compared to Nigarloo Coast camps.
Beach camp was pristine and quiet. Need to be fully self sufficient as there is nothing there except sand, the ocean and clean air.
Had the boat moored 20 metres from the camp site. Just need to work with the tides. They are big! Take a tide app with you.
Fishing was ok for July. Didn't go hungry and came home with a freezer of reef shark, GT and mackerel. Had a 4.3 m boat with 60 hp. Easy tow in from homestead, just be prepared to take 1 hour 40 to get to the beach camp to keep your gear in one piece.
Good Telstra reception at beach camp.
Amazingling friendly and helpful management and staff.
The room at the homestead had ensuite. All beautifully clean and welcoming. Dinner was fantastic after a day packing and travelling back from the beach camp."
