List of postcodes in the Northern Territory

List of postcodes in the Northern Territory

Postcodes are used by Australia Post to identify postal districts in Australia.

The NT system is organised such that:

* The numbering follows a broadly north-south pattern;

* Except in Darwin's suburban area, the final digit indicates:
** 0 - major centre (Palmerston, Katherine, Tennant Creek, Alice Springs, Nhulunbuy)
** 1 - PO box
** 2 - region surrounding major centre
** 3-9 - other towns in district

Historically NT codes were in the 5750-5799 range, with a similar organisation except that it followed a south-north pattern, with Darwin being 5790. The move to the new range occurred in the early 1990s.
