NZ Addresses is the national authoritative dataset for physical addresses in New Zealand.

This dataset contains the street number, street name and suburb of an address, as well as a unique ID and Territorial Authority.

Refer to the NZ Addresses Data Dictionary for detailed metadata and information about this dataset.

Please note this dataset replaced NZ Street Address in January 2023.


This dataset provides all allocated addresses as advised to Toitū Te Whenua LINZ by Territorial Authorities (TAs). Under the Local Government Act 1974 (section 319) it is the responsibility of the TAs to advise the Surveyor-General at Toitū Te Whenua LINZ of all allocated addresses in their district.

Address data is maintained by Toitū Te Whenua LINZ in the Address Information Management System (AIMS) and Comprehensive Address Data Store (CADS), which are centralised databases for the management of national addresses, including for electoral purposes. This dataset is updated weekly on the LINZ Data Service.
