The PSMA Predictive Address Verification service finds the most appropriate Australian addresses based on user input and returns fully parsed address data. It incorporates auto-completion and 'fuzzy' matching logic to provide a superior address searching experience. Potential user errors such as misspellings and neighbouring localities are corrected to the official address.

The Suggest Addresses endpoint will return a number of suggested addresses, including temporary address IDs. This address ID can be sent to the Get Address endpoint which will return the full address details, including geocoding information.
