Rural Street Numbers have been implemented in Murray in accordance with a national model and in partnership with Landgate, Emergency Services, utility providers, the Electoral Commission and Australia Post.
The allocated number becomes the property’s street address/house number whilst the property’s lot number is retained. Where there is a separate entrance to a secondary dwelling on a property, each entrance requires a unique Rural Street Number.
The objective is to provide a Rural Street Number to every Rural and Special Rural property to ensure all partners including the Shire are able to locate a property quickly and easily, particularly in the event of an emergency.
Cash, card, cheques and money orders are accepted.

Uniform address plates ensures every Rural and Special Rural property is easy to find, particularly important in an emergency.
Emergency Services, Police and other first responder services will only recognise the Shire supplied address plate as an official street address - lot numbers, or mailbox numbers are not recognised.
We encourage you to complete and lodge a Rural Street Number application at the same time as any building applications in order to avoid delays with the provision of services from Western Power and Telstra and to ensure properties are easy to locate for tradesmen.
We recommend not using your new address until the Shire has installed the address plate at your property.
Once installed, you are responsible for advising all other relevant parties of your new address (i.e. insurance, personal).
Allow up to four weeks from the initial payment or request until installation of the address plate.
Rural Street Numbers are based on the distance of a property’s entrance from the start of a road with odd numbers on the left and even numbers on the right. For example, the number 1902 refers to a property on the right hand side of a road 19.02 km from the road’s beginning, number 325 refers to a property on the left hand side of a road 3.25 km from the road’s beginning.
Rural Street Numbers are only a number and as such will not compromise privacy, instead there will no longer be a need for names on gate posts. Landgate advises relevant authorities of new Rural Street Numbers.
