Address format
Punctuation should not be used in Australian addresses. Nor should any words be underlined.

Local addresses should be no more than 3 lines long. Always use abbreviations for the state or territory and four-digit code. These should be written on the same line as the town/city/district.

The four digit code depicts state/territory and local areas.

Addresses can be written in capitals if desired, ie:
