Plate History1940's - 1990's
Plates are normal series plates issued in most country towns and shires.
They resemble the state-wide plates in design but have one to three letters signifying the issuing entity and up to five numerals.
Shire plates have a disc divider (e.g. Kimberly West, Roeburn) whereas town plates do not (e.g. Albany, Narrogin).
Shire/town plates are also issued to farm vehicles and motorcycles.
Hutt River Principality came into being on April 21, 1970 when it "seceded" from the Commonwealth of Australia by Leonard George Casley who became the sovereign prince.
It is not officially recognized.
Western Australia is a state of Australia. The capital is Perth.
