Definitely worth the detour if that way but ensure of opening times. The history of when and why this became a Principality is really interesting and you can even get your passport stamped. Glad we done it and got pictures of the Prince.

We stopped at Hutt River on the way to Exmouth recently. We had seen it on the news in Feb 2017 when the old prince handed over the reigns to the younger prince, and the kids were curious to see what it was about. Coming...More

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...More
