The small Western Australian town of Cookernup recently won a "hard-slog" battle with Australia Post to have its postcode returned. In 1974 Cookernup merged into the neighbouring Harvey postcode of 6220, but several years ago locals began the fight to have their 6219 postcode reinstated. Australia Post believes this is the first time it has ever returned a town's postcode.

"It's just a magic thing to be able to say that's where you call home and that's the numbers associated with it," said Jac Taylor, a Cookernup resident since 2005.
