Do you know how to format addresses?

Last updated by Brady Stroud [SSW] about 1 month ago.See history

Use a consistent format when writing addresses.

The structure should follow: Number, Street Name, City, State (abbreviation) Postal Code, Country

  • Beware of the commas positioning (inexisting between State and Postal Code)
  • Don't use dashes, slashes, or bars to separate the elements (OK if it is in the Street Name part)
  • Country is not always necessary depending on the audience
  • If you have enough space, it is OK to write it in 2 lines
  • We're in Australia and this should work for most countries' addresses, but some specific locations might have different address structures that won't allow following this rule

Level 1, 81-91 Military Rd | Neutral Bay - NSW, 2089 Australia

Figure: Bad example - SSW main office address not following the standard address formatting

Level 1/81-91 Military Rd, Neutral Bay, NSW 2089, Australia
