Physical Description

The 1910 accommodation building on Giralia Station has corrugated iron walls and roof with pressed tin ceilings. This has been retained for use despite extensive additions in 1916 to create what is now the mainhomestead. The newer section also has corrugated iron walls and roofing but some walls and and the ceilings are constructed of tongue and groove timber.


The original grant of 204.698 acrcs of Giralia Station was taken up by H R Frencry & Co as leasehold from the WA Government in 1888. The first part of the homestead was built in 1910 and additions were made in the form of the present homestead in 1916. In 1921 the Blake family took over the property and continued to graze sheep. In 1972 Rac and Denver purchased the shares from other members of their family, becoming the sole owners of the property. Further additions to the homestead were made in 1976 and the area of the property has expanded to 265.000ha (654.000 acres).
