    I live on a Drive.

    We are number 90 of 150.

    They are all 1 acre blocks too. It is a very long drive!

    In my adult life I have lived on:

    Road.

    It is about 50m long, and we are the only building on it.

    we live on a Rd that is 40km long, there are about 7 families living along it( a few kms off it).

    For an address I just write our property name and the small town nearby.

    they introduced 'rural addressing' or something a few years ago here. basically at the turn off to every property/mailbox the council put a black guidepost with a number on in and charge us $80 for it. its supposed to help ambos find properties or something. our number is 537 which means we are 5.37 klm along the road and cause its an odd number we are on the left side of the road. it does come in handy when some online places wont reconise a property name and you have to put in 'number' 'street name' 'st/rd'

    We did have a number appear on our front fence about that time ago, no one told us anything about it lol. Ours was 1312 which is our distance to the T road. Depends now if I use it or not with a road name. If you are rural too you would know that people could just write your name and town/postcode and you get your mail LOL.
    Can be a huge PITA for online things and billing so I used to just call our road the same name as the town it was heading towards. We recently had a sign go up with a new name for this road.

    We often don't use Rd name when posting to my mums farm. All you need is farm name and lot number 1or 2. We have 2 of the numbers on our front fence as there are 2 separate homes. Think it's 9548 on our farm
