Interestingly I note New Zealand Post seems to have changed the country’s name to New Zealand Aotearoa on nearly every one of its recent new issues and in a recent tweet the New Zealand High Commission referred to New Zealanders as “the nation of Aotearoa”. How far away are we from a name change down under?


  1. Australia Post allows use of indigenous country names in addresses, but people still have to use the official suburb and postcode (there are 250 indigenous countries in Australia, unlike in New Zealand, so Australia is unlikely to change its name, but we might see more use of traditional names for locations used on stamps). I can ask people to address mail to me at Wajuk Country, but it must finish with my actual home suburb and postcode in Perth, Western Australia.

    1. WK responding - ‘250 indigenous countries in Australia’, and we thought the UK had problems with just 4!
