Check your gear
Long distance driving can often involve recreational activities such as hiking, fishing and camping. The equipment used during these adventures, such as fishing rods and hiking boots, can collect soil, plant material and water.
To ensure you can keep enjoying such adventures, biosecurity needs to be considered to help keep our forests and waterways healthy.
Before loading and unloading your gear, check for any unwanted guests (e.g. pest insects or plant material). This is an easy, yet effective method to do your bit and help maintain Australian biosecurity.
