Australian Postcodes on Google Maps
Postcode Finder is a great application that shows Australia's postcodes on a Google Map. Using Postcade Finder a postcode search can be performed as either a text search or as a geographic query with a simple click on the map.
All Things Spatial has a nice post about the latest version of Postcode Finder. The post explains the choice of using Fusion Tables to create the application rather than a Web Map Service (WMS), and looks at the positive and negative outcomes of this choice.
