3 Correct addressing at a glance What is a Correct Address The address on every mail article is a direction to Australia Post. It directs the article through the mail delivery process, from street post box or Mail Centre to peoples letter boxes. It should be complete, concise, and clearly written or printed so that Australia Post can process and deliver the article accurately and speedily. Correct addressing conditions ensure Australia Post delivery systems can recognise and interpret the delivery address.

4 Correct addressing at a glance Components of a correct address The address on any postal article must be left justified and contain the following components: name of addressee Attention of: or other reference details street address: house or box number, street name and type or Locked Bag number locality name or the name of the office of delivery State or Territory abbreviation postcode Punctuation must be avoided in the last line of the address, including full stops and commas. No part of the address should be underlined. Specific standards relate to each line of the address. These standards are covered on the following pages. Australia Post Attention of: Mr A. Sample 321 Exhibition Street MELBOURNE VIC 3000

5 Advanced: Correct addressing Correct addressing standards Introduction The advanced letter sorting equipment used by Australia Post can read not only the place name, State, postcode (essentially the last line of the address) - it is able to read the full address information. This enables letters to be sorted to a finer level. The following 10 address presentation standards outline the correct format Building/Property name Building/Complex Sub Unit Floor/Level House/Property Number Lot/Section Number Street Name and Type Postal Delivery Type Placename/Suburb/Locality State/Territory Postcode Each standard is covered in more detail on the following pages.

6 Advanced: Correct addressing Correct addressing standards Introduction All abbreviations used by Australia Post are based on Australian Standards AS The Address Presentation Standards does not contain a complete list of abbreviations, only those commonly used. Whilst these standards have been specifically developed for the machine addressing of Small letters, it is recommended they be used for all categories of mail, including hand addressed mail articles.

7 Advanced: Correct addressing Correct addressing standards 1. Building/Property name The full name used to identify the physical building or property. Usually this information is not abbreviated, and should include any reference to a wing or other components of a building complex, if applicable. The building/property name is considered an optional element of an address, however in certain circumstances may be considered an essential requirement, if other elements are missing, for example a thoroughfare number or thoroughfare name. Examples NORTH WING TREASURY BUILDING Travel World House Medical Suites Louis Pasteur Complex BRINDABELLA MR C.R. MACDONALD AO Mr C.R. MacDonald AO MANAGER Manager ORBIT TRAVEL CO Orbit Travel Co TRAVEL WORLD HOUSE Travel World House Note: These addresses are incomplete. They are only examples of the construction of an address using Building/Property Name. Complete addressing is covered later.

8 Advanced: Correct addressing Correct Addressing standards 2. Building/Complex SubUnit If applicable, specifying the type of a separately identifiable portion within a building complex or marina with its associated number or identifier to clearly distinguish it from another, is an essential element of an address. Abbreviations can be used, however they are not essential. If abbreviations are used they should be structured in accordance with the table below.

9 Advanced: Correct addressing Correct addressing standards 3. Floor/Level If applicable, descriptors used to identify the floor or level of a multi-storey building or complex are considered an essential element of an address. The Floor/Level is positioned as the first item, located on the same line as the House/Property Number and Street Name. However, it can be placed on a separate address line, above the line containing the House/Property Number and Street Name, if necessary. Abbreviations can be used, however they are not essential. If abbreviations are used they should be structured in accordance with the table below.

10 Advanced: Correct addressing Correct addressing standards 4. House/Property number To record the numeric or numeric/alpha reference number of a house or property (also referred to as a street number) is an essential element of an address. The House/Property Number is positioned before the Street Name and Type, located in the same line containing the Street Name. Generally, only one house/property number is used. However, if the house/property number includes a number range, the range of applicable numbers should be included, separated by a hyphen (-), with no spaces between numerals, i.e Ideally, the alpha characters should be printed in upper case, with no spaces between numerals, for example 11B. Examples 11B Waterman Ave WENTWORTH RD 17 Jones St MR C.R. MACDONALD AO Mr C.R.

Lot/Section number The Lot/Section reference is allocated to a property, recorded by the appropriate Government Department, during the sub-division of a particular parcel of land. Lot or Section numbers should only be used prior to the formal allocation of street numbers by the appropriate Government Department. If formal street numbers have not been allocated this becomes an essential element of an address. The Lot/Section Number is positioned before the Street Name and Type, located in the same line containing the Street Name. Ideally to be printed in upper case, however upper case for the first character and lower case for subsequent characters is acceptable. Examples LOT 17 JONES ST Lot 16 Godfrey Ave

12 Advanced: Correct addressing Correct addressing standards 6. Street name and type The full street name used to identify the street location of the property, together with the thoroughfare type. Only one street name should be used. This is an essential element of an address. The street name and type is located on the second last line of the address, together with the street number (or if applicable floor/level, building sub-unit). The thoroughfare type should be abbreviated in accordance with Australian Standard AS , however they can be spelt in full. The following is a list of commonly used thoroughfares types, together with appropriate abbreviations.

14 Advanced: Correct addressing Correct addressing standards 8. Placename/Suburb/Locality The full name of the placename or Post Office of delivery containing the specific address, which may include a Delivery Centre (DC) or a Business Centre (BC), is considered an essential element of an address. The placename is the first item located in the last line of the address, together with the State abbreviation and postcode. This information must be printed in upper case, with no punctuation. Generally, the placename is not abbreviated, however certain elements of the placename may be abbreviated based on common acceptance, i.e. MT for Mount and ST for Saint. Examples or MR C.R.
