How to fill out the state of my overseas address on AOS forms?

Form i-485 Part 3 Address History asks me to fill out my current address and history of addresses. I am filling out the form online. When I type in ‘Australia’ for ‘Country’ fields including ‘State and ZIP Code’ become blank and do not allow me to type. My question is, how do I enter my state on this form?

I'm not familiar with the online forms but if you fill in Australia for country, it should allow you to do this and then the zip code is no longer relevant for overseas addresses.  You can see if it allows you to submit an addendum.
