Street numbering

​What is rural addressing?

Rural addressing is a simple, straight-forward means to identify, locate and address properties in rural areas.

Why is rural addressing needed?

The addressing and locating of rural properties has been an issue for some time.  It is vitally important that properties be numbered in a consistent and logical way to assist emergency services.

How does rural addressing work?

We assign each individual rural property (with a dwelling) a unique number based on the distance of the property entrance from the designated starting point of the road which is usually an intersection or junction.

The approach taken by Council is consistent with methodology described in the Australian Standard. Odd numbers are given to properties on the left and even numbers are allocated to the properties on the right.

If you have a query regarding your rural roadside number, please contact us.
