Quarantine Restrictions: “One bad apple and a naughty nut”

Plant quarantine restrictions apply throughout Australia.  A national border-protection network operates at airports, sea and rail terminals and road-entry points.

It is illegal to carry fruit and vegetables across all borders into South Australia, unless they have been certified free of pests and diseases.  Quarantine roadblocks are situated at the WA/SA Border Village for travellers heading west and at Ceduna for travellers heading east. Mobile quarantine roadblocks operate on country roads.

You are required to stop at a quarantine roadblock and declare any fruit, vegetables or plant material.  A plant health inspector has the power to search your vehicle and seize any prohibited items.
