The Postcode Boundaries dataset is the definitive set of postcodes developed by Australia Post and PSMA Australia. It includes postcode boundaries (polygon data) and postcode centroids (point data).
Postcodes are allocated to geographic areas to facilitate the efficient processing and delivery of mail to customers. The Postcode Boundaries dataset represents postcodes as both a polygon and a point.
Access and applications
The Postcode Boundaries dataset is available through our value added resellers. Our resellers also develop products and solutions using the data. Applications of this dataset include:
Many organisations rely on address databases for the delivery of effective and efficient services as well as for dealings with suppliers, customers and stakeholders. With Postcode Boundaries you can pinpoint and verify addresses within a boundary to reduce data duplication and increase database accuracy.
Postcode Boundaries can be used to show internet or smart phone users an array of services in their nearest suburb.
Social, demographic, economic and environment data can be combined with the Postcode Boundaries dataset to build profiles of suburbs and wider areas.
Postcode Boundaries can be used in conjunction with G-NAF to verify addresses for 000 calls and help to reduce response times.
The Postcode Boundaries dataset provides a starting point for demographic and socio-economic analysis by government agencies.
