Rural Road Numbers (RRN)
Rural Road Numbering is a permanent and easy to follow means of identifying properties in sequence along any street or road in non-urban areas.
The advent of rural addressing occurred in 1986 in the Shire of Corio and was taken up by the Rural City of Wangaratta around 2003. Rural Road Numbers improve the efficiency of deliveries to, and collections from, your property as well as making it easier for visitors to find your home.
Making your property easy to locate is particularly important in emergency situations when time is critical. Emergency services can be delayed if a property address is difficult to find. It is important to use your rural road number when providing your address, and that the number is clearly displayed on the main access point to your residence.
