Information for Travellers
Travellers caught taking fruit or fruiting vegetables into the Greater Sunraysia Pest Free Area without a certificate face heavy fines – this applies to travellers arriving by car, aeroplane or public transport.
Special bins allow you to safely dispose of fruit without penalty and are located along the highway entries to the GSPFA, at bus and train stations and at Mildura Airport.
If you live within the GSPFA and have fruit fly in your home garden, you must not move fruit from your property unless it is cooked, frozen, preserved or canned.
To check what fruit you can take with you on your trip, visit the Australian Interstate Quarantine website: Australian Interstate Quarantine Information
