Overview

Vicmap Address is the authoritative geocoded database of property address points for Victoria.

The product predominantly includes, but not exclusively, locational property address identifiers assigned by Local government. Local government is the primary creator and custodian of property addresses.

Vicmap Address also contains, where accessible, other 'real life' property addresses created and used by the community but not recognised by local government. Examples include: retirement villages, assisted care facilities, industrial estates, alpine resorts and public housing estates.

Vicmap Address can be used to map the location of addressed assets or to verify the content of business address data.

Vicmap Address includes:

  • Street number and street name
  • Locality
  • Cross reference to Local Government
  • Post code and state
  • Cross reference to Vicmap Property, and
  • Census District Attribute

Vicmap Address does not include non-property related and electronic address details such as email, post office (PO) boxes, roadside delivery points and roadside mail boxes.

The minimum address attributes required for a property address to be included in Vicmap Address are road name and locality.

The standard address details include the unit/house number(s), road name (including any type or suffix) and locality (town/suburb/rural district).
