Business Location does not have street address

I am trying to get Google my business to accept my address and location but it will not do it.


Firstly I live on an island ( Bremer Island NT Australia) , so I do not have a street address and it will not allow you to continue unless I put in a street address, So I put in Bremer Island as the street as well as the suburb. Then it tells me to move the marker to indicate the address, when this is done it tells me that my address does not match my location. FRUSTRATING! Also if it matters the postcode I use is the local town of Nhulunbuy which is our closest town. This is our penalty for being remote.


Can anyone help?

a primary purpose of google-my-business is to place a marker on a map --
with posted open-hours and phone-number, so that potential customers can
receive exact directions to the business, for a walk-in, face-to-face, purchase
of a product or service.

a google+ brand-page may be more appropriate for businesses that do
not have accurate street addresses or no brick-and-mortar office/shop,
or do not allow for exact map placement with accurate directions.

otherwise, the google-my-business-forum may offer
more specific information and is currently here --
