The following information is to assist owners of rural and special rural properties within the Shire, with the allocation a new number or change to an existing rural property address number. Allocation and display of rural property address number is covered under the Shire's Street Numbering Local law 2015.
A better addressing system
Rural property address numbers have been implemented within the Shire in accordance with a national model, partners include Landgate, Emergency Services, Utility providers, Electoral Commission and Australia Post. The objective is to provide a uniform address to every rural and special rural property to make it easy for all partners including the Shire to find a property, particularly in the event of an emergency.
Property numbers are based on the distance of the entrance to a property from the start of a road. Odd numbers are on the left and even numbers on the right. For example, the number 1902 refers to a property on the right side of a road 19.02 km from the road’s beginning. Number 325 refers to a property on the left side of a road 3.25 km from the road’s beginning.
