Neither of these do what you're asking for, but they may be useful.

	Regexp::Common::zip  can verify the _format_ of Australian postcodes
	Geo::PostalAddress   can be used to verify/generate addresses in
	                      Australian format

If you write a module to deal with AusPost's database, you may want to work in 
the Geo::Postcode:: name space, and to conform to their existing interface.

All the best,
