Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We first visited Hutt River Province in 2003 when Princess Shirley and Prince Leonard were fit and well. Sadly, since, both have passed away and it would appear the Province is no more. The history is very interesting and well worth researching. Prince Leonard came across as a very eccentric and interesting character when he was alive.

Having been to Kalbarri a few times, a visit to Hutt River Province has been on the bucket list for a few years. Places like that fascinate me. Anyway, it’s about a 50 min drive from Kalbarri down some well-maintained unsealed roads. There’s a chapel, a wonderfully eccentric museum and a post office which doubles as the government offices. We met Prince Graeme who told us all about the place and was happy to answer any questions we had. He gave our daughters a Hutt River visa and we spent about an hour and a half just walking around and looking at the curios in the museum and trying to piece together the narrative of how the place declared its independence from Australia in 1970. Youngest daughter is the proud owner of a Hutt River flag as well. It really is worth the trouble of a detour to have a look round and to immerse yourself in something that is quintessentially Australian. Loved it more than I thought I would.

I heard about Casey doing his anti wheat board thing many years ago. The fact he found a loop hole in removing his property from the Commonwealth shows the fighting spirit of the man. But sadly that's where it ends. He could have turned this event into a huge business Venture. Casey styled himself as Prince. When I think Royalty , I think Stately Manors or Castles. A place a visitor could be dined and entertained for the day or evening.
(it's a full days drive from Perth to get there!) But it's just a wheat farm in the middle of nowhere. After hearing the "story" there is practically nothing else to do but more on. You're welcome to camp overnight but the 30 billion flies are just insane.
A cash injection of $5 million could really boost this vast spread into an Outback Tourist Gem. Motel rooms , a Tavern , lots more shade & Trees , swimming pool for kids , on sight tours , lookout tower , Quad bike hire etc etc , all these attractions would boost and add value to this piece of History at the end of a long dry Road.
Seen some history , but nothing to see again.

I believe there is a similar "seceded territory" in Texas but otherwise the Principality is unique. Prince Graeme took over form his founding father who dies in February - he meets and welcomes visitors, albeit not in full royal regalia. He explains the history. Your passport can be stamped if you have it with entry and exit visas; various souvenirs can be bought. The delightful chapel is open with its specially commissioned paintings and thrones for the Prince and Princess. The "museum" is an eclectic collection of eccentricity, ephemera and memorabilia - like the contents of an attic. Your visit will costs you nothing, but most visitors buy some kind of souvenir. Not worth a trek of hundreds of kilometres to see but if in the area well worth the diversion.

Prince Graeme greeted as the door to the Post Office with a warm smile.
He then spent 15 minutes telling us the story of The Province. It was obvious the pride he has for his late father Prince Leonard.
It really is a slice of Australian history.
It is also a working Post Office and farm. Highly recommend.

A unique attraction with a chapel and museum. As we are on holiday from Cornwall in the UK, we were surprised and delighted to see a Diocese of Cornwall tea towel affixed to the inside of the chapel door! The owner Prince Graeme is a lovely chap and very friendly. We had our visa duly stamped by him. The museum is stuffed with items from around the world. Some people were impressed ... others not so! Beware, there is a 30 km drive on unsealed and dusty roads.

I'm surprised a movie hasn't been made about Hutt River.. the underdog tsking on the Government and winning the initial fight. Although the fight with the ATO continues.. The place is a little tired, the artwork amazing... go at least once!

I’ve been there 10 minutes before the opening and has been welcomed poorly. The guy almost threatening me not to give my passport back if I didn’t apology to be there early!
Unbelievable what a man allows itself to do when he has a little power on others...

Waste of time and fuel to come there

My husband thought that this was like visiting an old relative's place with all their memorabilia on show. It is definitely like this but Prince Graeme is such a charming, friendly man and the story is a story worth visiting for. Take the trip off the main road and break up your journey!

Have been following and reading of the Princes endeavours for years, and as we were in the area, decided to stop by. We were met by Prince Graeme, a lovely chap and still enthused sharing the families story with visitors. Highly recommend stopping by if you are in the area.
