Each suburb is followed by its postcode. (Some suburbs share the same postcode). Most Victorian postcodes start with a '3'.

Note on usage: In Australia, the name of a suburb usually corresponds to the official postal district of a city. Also, the term Inner suburbs refers to the older, denser, urban areas closer to the original colonial centre of the cities and outer suburbs refers to the urbanised areas found in the outer reaches of the metropolitan area. Sometimes the term "middle ring suburb" is used to refer to areas that were urbanised early in a city's expansion after the inner suburbs had become established. This differs from British and North American usage, in which the term "suburb" is usually not applied to urban areas that are close to a major city centre. The size of local government areas within cities varies in Australia. The entire metropolitan area of Brisbane is covered by a single municipal council, whereas other cities are divided into varying numbers of municipalities, each of which would cover a number of suburbs.
