Australian Postcode and Suburb Next-Door Tables

 
   

Latest update - 3rd April 2015

With these products you can use any given postcode or suburb to find all neighbouring and adjacent postcodes and suburbs. The Next Door table is available at either Postcode or individual suburb level for the ultimate in precision.

Tables contain an attribute column "Direction" which is taken as From->To and is one of N,S,E,W,NE,SE,SW,NW

   
 

How it works: The table containing all the next-door records is created by taking every every postcode or suburb and comparing to every other postcode or suburb to create a list of which postcodes or suburbs are immediately adjacent, hence 'Next Door'.

   
 


   
 


Perfect for creating a directory system to handle the case where no matches are found for a particular postcode or suburb then just continue the search using the information in this table so you can always deliver a search result.

The production process creates a set of records ideal for direct use in a database system - no complicated 3rd party software licences or costs - you use your own familiar and compatible tools.
