‘Conveniently close to Australia’
Welcome to the official website of the Republic of Wynnum, which declared independence from Australia (and also therefore the state of Queensland and Brisbane City Council) on Wednesday 12th November, 2014. It is one of the newer nations in the world, although it does not yet have a seat at the UN (we’re working on that).
It takes its place quite close to the bottom of countries ranked by population size, but, with a population of ~24,000, is more highly populated than four existing independent nations.
Where is The Republic of Wynnum? The Republic is situated approximately 19 km east of Brisbane, state capital of Queensland, Australia. It is accessible by road (approximately 25min drive from Brisbane), by sea and is only a 17min drive from Brisbane International Airport.
Hence our official slogan ‘Conveniently close to Australia’.
