The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources is responsible for protecting Australia’s environment and agricultural industries from the introduction of pests and diseases from other countries.
However, Interstate quarantine is a serious issue. Pests, diseases and weeds can spread from one part of Australia to another through the movement of:
- plants or plant products
- animals or animal products
- agricultural machinery and other equipment
- recreational equipment.
The Quarantine Domestic website, published jointly by Australian state authorities, gives you all the quarantine information you need for travelling within Australia.
