The Hutt River Province

Miriam Shilling

Burrill Lake, Australia

Artist's Description

I visited another counrty the other week. When i arrived I met the head of state, Prince Leonard. This photo shows a carved bust of his head in his country which is called the Hutt River Province. This country is only about 60kms from where I live in Kalbarri, mid west Western Australia.
In the 1970’s the land was a wheat farm. The farmers got sick of the government restricting how much wheat they could sell so they found a loophole in the law and declared their property a new country. The owner now calls himself Prince Leonard. Very interesting man!
