About interstate quarantine

Pests, diseases and weeds can travel with you as you visit different areas of Australia.

There are restrictions on what you can take as you cross state and quarantine borders within Australia. Following the rules about moving these items will help to minimise the risk to Australia’s unique environments and valuable agricultural markets.

Travellers face on-the-spot fines for taking prohibited items across borders.

Check what you are carrying. Penalties apply.
