Regional Contacts & Activities

How Queensland regional groups are assigned

In the Queensland Branch we have eight regional groups located outside of the Greater Brisbane area (metro area).

The postcode of the location where a member resides determines the regional group to which they are assigned or whether they are members in the metro area.

(a) Members in Metro Area
Members who reside in locations with Australian postcodes
4000 to 4184 but not 4133
4300 to 4340 and
4500 to 4506

are regarded as being in the metro area.

(b) Members in a Regional Group
Members who reside in locations with Australian postcodes other than those above are assigned to a regional group. The postcodes used to determine each regional group are as follows

Name of Regional Group
