Gravity Forms – How to add Australian address type format

GravityForms-AustralianAddressFormat1By default Gravity Forms has three address type formats:

  • International
  • United States
  • Canadian

International is the default address type and provides the most flexibility for the various address formats used worldwide.

You can however use a handful of hooks to customise these options and even create your own address type format.

In this example I’ll be creating the Australian address type format, using standards set by the postal authority – Australia Post.

These are:

  • ‘Address line #’
  • ‘Town/suburb’
  • ‘State’
  • ‘Postcode’ (one word)

This code will also add the Australian states as drop down options for the ‘State’ field, in alphabetical order.

And finally, it will set the new ‘Australian’ address type format to the default format when creating a new address field. (Note: you will need at least version for this)


To use the code simply copy into your theme’s functions.php file – directly below the opening line – <?php

If you’re not sure how to do this you can download and install this plugin, which provides the exact same code as an installable plugin.
