Location SA - Postcodes

The Postcode layer is a derived data set from the Suburb layer, using the postcode number field within the Suburb layer data to merge the suburb polygons into the relevant postcode polygons.

Postcodes is a digital dataset depicting the postcode boundaries within the state. This dataset is one of many themes that comprise the Digital Cadastral Data Base (DCDB). Postcode numbers are issued and maintained by Australia Post. Postcode boundaries are derived from DCDB Suburb and Rural Locality boundaries. Australia Post accepts the Suburb and Rural Locality boundaries as the defining polygons for all postcodes within South Australia. Postcodes are captured only where defined Suburbs or Rural Localities currently exist.For more information please visit the LocationSA Metadata Portal:
