        Yes.                 Only if we have access to the phonebook
                             High Court ruled in '02 that the AU

zip -> constraint on phone prefix
Not really. area codes are assigned by Telstra which often don't correspond with Australia Post. E.g. Wodonga on the Victoria-NSW border,
has Victorian postcode, but shares an exchange with the larger
Albury in NSW.

Typical anglo-saxon disorganisation I'm afraid ;-)

Area codes within Vancouver and Toronto are also no longer associated with geography, which is why there is 10 digit dialing in those places now. It was a lower-cost option.
