Property numbering

Council is responsible for allocating street and property numbers for townships and rural areas within the Shire.

Rural property numbering (also known as rural road numbering) is a permanent and easy to follow means of identifying rural properties in sequence along a street or road. 

From the beginning of a road, property numbers increase by 10 for approximately each 100 metres.  Odd numbers feature on the left hand side of the road and even numbers on the right. 

It is the responsibility of residents to display their property number so that it is seen clearly from the road. This is important in ensuring fast response by emergency services such as ambulance, CFA, SES, Police and service providers such as Australia Post or Electricity Companies.

If you are unsure about your property number contact Council’s Rates Unit on (03) 5772 0333.
