Output

Combined

Post Code,Suburbs,Distance()

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

I know this is probably out of scope but postcodes within a driving distance radius would be really useful.

Wonderful help. Thankyou.

Great help thankyou.

Booyah. This tool things your tool is the business. Great work. BTW, can anyone explain the relevance of an AU postcode? Back in the UK, you can address a letter with only the postcode and it will almost always get to the recipient as a UK postcode narrows an address down to a few properties. An AU postcode narrows an address down to a few thousand. Almost as pointless as the accolade of making the Australian AFL team! Booyah

Hi Bill, sorry, we don't understand. In what context do you see these two terms?

Hi, have been getting the same error message as Vicki for a couple of weeks now. When I open the console I get a "You have exceeded your daily request quota for this API" message, but since this is the first time I have opened up this site this week I don't think that's the problem (well at least not on my end).

Sorry! Something went wrong. This page didn't load Google Maps correctly. See the JavaScript console for technical details. These words are showing in the radius search map box...can you help
By vicki on 10th July 2017

The combined output is now sorted by distance from centre of the radius.

Would be good if you can order the postcodes from nearest to furthest from chosen postcode

DarethMortuus, displaying them on this page causes performance issues so that's why there is a limit. So it can be done via an API but there may be a cost to use this. Get in contact if you want to discuss further.

Is there any alternative we can use that gets us over 700km?
By DarethMortuus on 21st June 2017

Hi Ben, thanks for the feedback. 3141 has now been corrected so will not appear on the 5km from Bendigo search.
By Free Map Tools on 20th June 2017

This tool is fantastic, thank you! I just entered a 50km radius from Bendigo 3550 and everything seemed okay except the first result was 3141, Chapel Street North in Melbourne. Not sure why, but I don't think that should be there!
By Ben on 19th June 2017

Thanks for developing this! It is perfect to help define shipping zones. saved me hours of manual entering

Christine, there was a small update needed to the database. 2400 (Moree) should no longer appear in a 150km search from 2850.
By Free Map Tools on 18th May 2017

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.
