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
Central Queensland 4680 to 4736 (based on Rockhampton)
Mackay-Whitsunday 4737 to 4805
Townsville 4806 to 4854
Far North Queensland 4855 to 4888 (based on Cairns)
