This is a great little story of one's mans fight against bureaucracy.
The Principality of Hutt River, previously known as the Hutt River Province, is the oldest micronation in Australia. The principality claims to be an independent sovereign state and to have achieved legal status on 21 April 1970, although it remains unrecognised by Australia and other nations. The principality is located 517 km (354 mi) north of Perth, near the town of Northampton in the state of Western Australia. If considered independent, it is an enclave of Australia. It is a regional tourist attraction.

The principality was founded on 21 April 1970 by Leonard George Casley, who styles himself as "Prince Leonard", when he and his associates proclaimed their secession from Western Australia. His wife Shirley, styled as "Princess Shirley", died on 7 July 2013.
The principality started issuing it's own stamps (Cinderella's) in 1973,they are not recognized by Australia or any other nation.But they are a nice addition to any Cinderella collection.

I wonder how many stamps get used? Do you know if a recognized printer does these or if they are printed within Hutt Province? Interesting..

Hi Cheryl
They use different printers including Cambec (who print AP stamps )also.Coastal Printing Burleigh Heads,Multi Graphics.
I only found these on the full sheets I have.
A gentleman in Western Australia has produced his own catalogue (and it's copyrighted)It's been produced by R.W.Lowry.Here is the cover page ,it is printed on A4 pages in colour.
