How Queensland regional groups are assigned

In the Queensland Branch we have eight regional groups located outside of the Greater Brisbane area (metro area).

The postcode of the location where a member resides determines the regional group to which they are assigned or whether they are members in the metro area.

(a)  Members in Metro Area

Members who reside in locations with Australian postcodes

4000 to 4184 but not 4133;

4300 to 4340 and

4500 to 4506

are regarded as being in the metro area.   

(b) Members in a Regional Group

 Members who reside in locations with Australian postcodes other than those above are assigned to a regional group.   The postcodes used to determine each regional group are as follows

Name of Regional Group                          Postcodes

Gold Coast                                                2478 to 2490; 4205 to 4287; 4133

Sunshine Coast                                        4507 to 4580

Darling Downs                                          4341 to 4490 (based on Toowoomba)

Bundaberg                                                4581 to 4678
