* Used for PO boxes and large users only

Exceptions to the above postcodes where state borders are geographically confusing or a postcode spans more than one state. There are also some specific postcodes for Australia's islands and territories that do not follow the state divisions.

Calling Australia from overseas

You need the country code for Australia + the area code for the state/territory + the phone number.

For example, to call Queensland from overseas it would be
     61 (country code for Australia) + 7 (area code for QLD) + the phone number.

NOTE: You drop the leading 0 from the area code for international calls to Australia
