Traditional Place Names In Addresses

You may have noticed on our checkout page we have included Indigenous Country where Address Line 2 normally is.  That's because we're getting behind Gomeroi Woman, Rachael McPhail's campaign to see Australians include traditional Indigenous place names in addresses. 

We recognise that Australia always was and always will be Aboriginal land and we hope this action encourages the wider community to learn more about Indigenous culture, history and language. 

You can find your traditional place name by referring to the AIATSIS Map of Indigenous Australia.

Rachael also recommends speaking to the Elders or lands council of a community for traditional place name information.

Australia Post fully supports this initiative. According to an Australia Post spokesperson in this article,"when it comes to the addressing of letters and parcels, customers are welcome to include the Traditional Nation name in the address."
