In 1923, Frank Whitlock, (Mayor of Carnarvon), along with two other partners, purchased Giralia and Artesian Stations. They combined both properties to run as one ‘Giralia Station’. Mr Whitlock and his family kept their interests in the property and in the late 1950s, his grandson, Denver Frank Blake, came to work on the station, first as a jackeroo, then manager, until finally purchasing the place outright in the 1970s. In 2005 Giralia was sold to the Department of Conservation and Land Management and destocked. Today Frank Whitlock’s Great Grandson, Denver H Blake resides at the property welcoming tourists to the former sheep station, once home to 30,000 merino sheep. Giralia is located on the trail of the old Wool Wagon Pathway and takes in the beautiful Exmouth Gulf, approximately a 45 minute drive from the homestead; a haven for both fishermen and explorers alike.
