Australian Postcodes Format
postcodes have four digit number format.
The first digit
of Australian postcodes usually stands for a state or a territory. On this page
you may see the list of Australian postcode ranges for each state. But some
exceptions to these Australian postcode ranges take place in state or territory
digit of Australian postcodes usually indicates a region within the state. Australian
postcodes with a second digit of 0 or 1 are located within the metropolitan
area of the state's capital city. Australian postcodes with other second digits
are located in rural or regional areas.
Main Australian cities or towns usually have zero or two zeros at the
end of their postcodes. But exceptions also occur.
Australian postcodes carry routing information. A postcode is often
associated with a single geographical area (town or suburb). Some geographical
areas in Australia have two postcodes. One is for Post
Office Boxes, another is for street deliveries. Some departments or
corporations that receive a lot of mail have their own Australian postcodes.
Australian postcodes are written at the end of the
address after the city (suburb or town) and the state (or territory).
