In 1967, the Australian General Department of Postmaster introduced for the first time in Australia the postal codes. The old systems were removed, such as the alphanumeric codes of sorting used in Melbourne. At each place there was awarded a Post Office. Today, all these are managed by Australia Post. The four-digit code is used for sorting and delivery of letters and parcels.
