Free the G-NAF Address Dataset

"G-NAF is the authoritative index of geocoded Australian addresses. This award-winning dataset contains more than 13 million physical addresses that are sourced from the address custodians from each state and territory, the Australian Electoral Commission and Australia Post."


Compiled and maintained using data from a wide range Government agencies, it's only available at a cost, which means address geo-coding, a basic location service isn't freely available to foster innovation.
