New Zealand Address Dataset (NZAD)

The New Zealand Address Dataset (NZAD) is a snapshot of addresses (at the time of the extract) that contains all addresses in New Zealand Post’s National Postal Address Database (NPAD).

It contains a unique number of up to seven digits (the Delivery Point Identifier or DPID), which makes it easier to manage and match customer addresses. It includes addresses that are delivered by both our postie and courier delivery networks.

Addresses supplied by Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) data have been updated to include information provided to New Zealand Post by City and Regional councils and information collected by NZ Post.

Data you will receive

  • All addresses with an in-use DPID (ie. not retired). These addresses are created by LINZ, New Zealand Post or by Territorial Authorities. An address may or may not be a delivery point. The delivery status is determined by New Zealand Post.
  • Addresses that receive mail delivery at the time of the extract will have the “Delivered To” flag set to “Y”.
  • Addresses that do not receive mail delivery may be vacant sections, reserves or buildings. The usage or occupancy of the property is not identified.
  • Address types of Urban and Rural are based on the postcode that the physical address is located within.
  • Full address details, including both physical and postal address details for Rural Delivery addresses.
  • All let and available (unlet) Box/Bag addresses.
  • All Community Mailboxes (CMBs).
  • All Counter Delivery locations.
  • Spatial coordinates to allow visual representation of an address on a map.
