Found this handy snippet in the Google Cache when searching for a list of Australian States – original page seemed to be deleted

Handy if you’re having to make drop-down lists of Australian States & Territories

	<option name="wa">Western Australia</option>
	<option name="sa">South Australia</option>
	<option name="tas">Tasmania</option>
	<option name="act">Australian Capital Territory</option>
	<option name="nt">Northern Territory</option>

And if you’re after an abbreviated Capitalized list for the WordPress ‘Contact Form 7‘ plug-in


ACT||NSW||NT||QLD||SA||TAS||VIC||WA
