It is best to visit the Hutt River Province by way of a FWD, the road is unsealed for most of the trip once you leave the H'way. But you will be so delighted when you get to the Principality. Take your Passport and have it Stamped, also you will need a Visa to enter the Principality - but they... More

How fortunate we were to be able to meet and speak with Prince Leonard -- and wish him a Happy Birthday. We stayed a couple of nights at the caravan park so had the time to spend quite some time going through the displays and memorabilia; steeping ourselves in the history; enjoying the chapel; and also speaking with Prince Graeme....

If you want to go to another country and not leave Australia, then this is it. You have to get a visitor's visa from the Post Office at a cost of $4.00,stamped. Also available is a members certificate or an officers certificate, both personally signed by Prince Leonard. These cost $35 and $55 each including postage. There are other souvenirs... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to another country! Who knew there was a little country (Prince Leonard's farm) hidden within Australia! What a clever man to fight back with the government of the day, and stop them from destroying his family's livelihood. It became an Independent Sovereign State on the 21st of April 1970 and the stories that Prince Leonard... More

We visited here recently & what a hidden little gem. Got to meet HRH Prince Leonard himself now in his 90's. They have a great collection in their museum, alot of history to the story a quirky but very interesting place to visit. Nice easy drive out to the place, visa costs $4 & you get your passport legally stamped

You know "Ab-Fab" - where the hippy parents aren't quite over it yet. No doubt this place had more significance once - maybe 30 years ago. It's an interesting stop - we were shown around by a princess, but it's all a bit dated. The story of creating your own country to avoid paying tax is interesting, but no doubt... More

Stopped past on a long weekend exploring the Geraldton-Kalbarri region from Perth. Unusual but really entertaining and worthwhile! The family are great and it's just a typically Aussie place. Highly recommend!

If you are in the area and have an extra 1hr, it is definitely worth a visit! Especially if you are the kind of person who enjoys meeting slightly crazy(?)/bizarre people and be polite and nice to them, even though you are actually thinking that their whole story is... humm 'nonsense'. It was amazing to see how other people can... More

Don't expect anything amazing, this is effectively just some guys farm. What you can expect is one of the most bizarre and wacky experiences you'll get in Australia. The Prince took us around the Capital, basically showing us his souvenir collection. It's all very weird.

Well worth the visit if your in the Geraldton, Northhampton, Kalbarri, Port Gregory area. A great story and should be a part of Australian history in high schools. This is a credit to a man whose family potentially could have been forced off his land by government bearocrats if he had gone along with it! Similar Government bullying that went... More
