Instructions

Input a radius to search within in KM or miles. Click on the map or type in an address or Australian post code on the center of your search. After a delay, the results will appear in the text box. If there is a reasonable number of points, they will also be shown on the map. If you hover over a marker, you will see it's post code.

You can find a comma separated list of the post codes and suburbs in the large text box below the map.

There is a limit to the radius because excessive results can take a long time to load and some web browsers struggle to load them all.

Future Improvements

  • Display distance between centre point and marker when you hover of the marker

Christine, there was a small update needed to the database. 2400 (Moree) should no longer appear in a 150km search from 2850.

Tried to do a search with a 150km radius of postcode 2850 and it has bought in areas 400 km away eg. postcode 2400. Have been using this tool for a couple of years and have found it to be mostly accurate but now not so sure. Any suggestions as to why this has happened.

Thanks for your explanation of 3rd April 2017. Back using your cool tool today. Dave

Great resource! Thanks for making this available for free, it has helped with working out what regions we can deliver meals to in a 125km radius after TC Debbie.

Hi Dave, I ran your search and agree 3033 isn't found. If the radius is increased, it is found at an 8km radius. This tool works by assuming a single point as the postcode and for 3033 it is on E Esplanade where it meets Briggs St. I believe its for this reason it isn't found for a smaller radius even though the search area my have some overlap with the postcode area.

Great tool thanks saving heaps of time but concerned about accuracy. If I do a 5km radius search on Niddrie, VIC, Australia with p/c 3042, the sweep isn't picking up the adjacent suburb immediately to the west being East Keilor p/c 3033. Any tips?

Sorry mate, I tried Chrome(54.0.2840.99 m), IE(11,10, 9), and FireFox(50) but unfortunately, still get same blank results. This used to work though. I just stumbled upon this issue as I mentioned your tools to one of my friends to show off the "postcodes inside a defined area". I'll try and figure out why it's only happening on my end. Not sure but it works on my mobile device on a 3g network. maybe it's the network where my desktop is in. Anyway, thanks for your help and great tools, love em.

JPD, things seem OK at this end. Can you try a different browser or clear your temporary internet files and load the page again?
By Free Map Tools on 29th November 2016
