If you wanted to get really serious about accurate address processing,
you could contact a company called Axciom and get their PAFLink
software, it will tell not only if the postcode is correct, but also if
the address is valid, and potentially reformat it to AusPost
requirements, plus give you the DPID for the address.
AusPost do have a subscription service for the postcode, NSP etc tables.

Hi All,
 Does anybody know of any method of looking up Australian postcodes?
I need to validate the input on a postal address, and confirm that the
postcode given for the suburb is correct.
A quick search of CPAN doesn't yield anything promising.
