The Rural Addressing Project is a joint State and Local Government initiative aimed at providing all occupied rural properties in South Australia with a nationally consistent numbered address. Many properties are currently located on un-named roads, requiring the property owner to rely on local knowledge and reference points among emergency services personnel (and service providers like vets and livestock officers) to find their property. Descriptions of property location are often confusing leading to time loss and frustration. The Rural Property Addressing Project is aimed at ending that confusion and ambiguity.
