Issue

Several Australian postcodes are not recognized in Tableau Desktop.

Environment

Tableau Desktop 9.3 and earlier versions.

Resolution

Option 1:

Upgrade to Tableau Desktop 10.0. For more information, see Upgrading Tableau Desktop.

Option 2:

Use custom geocoding. Latitude/longitude coordinates may be obtained from an external website, such as Geonames.


 

Cause

Versions of Tableau prior to 10.0 use an older set of postcode data.
