The Shire of Denmark worked closely with Landgate, Australia Post and emergency services organisations to introduce a property addressing system which numbers properties consecutively along a road, with respect to the distance from the beginning of the road to each access point along that road.

With the update to the Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4819:2011 “Rural and Urban Addressing”, the Shire of Denmark will continue to review property addressing to ensure compliance with that standard, thus enabling the precise location of a property in an emergency.
