Rural Property Addressing

As part of a national rollout, rural property addressing will provide all occupied rural properties, homes and businesses, with a numbered property address. This is consistent with the national standards for Australia and New Zealand.

Currently, finding many rural properties relies heavily on people's knowledge of the local area and reference points. This can be confusing and time consuming.

Giving rural properties a consistent address will:

  • assist emergency services and service providers find properties - eg vets
  • improve the safety of people in rural areas
  • improve delivery of services and infrastructure
  • provide a certainty of location and a recognised address that can be understood nationally.

To find out if you are eligible for a rural address please contact Council on 8733 0901, or visit the SA Planning Rural Property Addressing.
