Fruit and Veges into Qld from NSW
Submitted: Thursday, Aug 13, 2009 at 20:57
Going to Birdsville
via Lightening Ridge from Sydney
; from LR we will be entering Qld and tracking across via Cunnamulla
, Nockatunga etc.
The Missus wants to know are there any fruit and vege restrictions on the way to Birdsville
as described? I know that there are restrictions going into SA - are there any going into Innamincka
Are dried fruit excluded? Or included in the restrictions? (Dried apricots for instance, dates, etc)

I dont know about QLD but here is SA as long as you have receipts the fruit/veges were purchased in SA you are right to bring them into the restricted areas ie: the Riverland, other wise getting rid of them before is the best option.

Try qld.gov.au and then search "quarantine"

Hi there viz.
Try this link for quarantine info: http://www.quarantinedomestic.gov.au/
Please note that Fruit Fly restrictions are only a part of quarantine issues, so the Tri State Fruit Fly website you were referred to is not the full picture, which is why we lost onions , spuds and goodness know what else returning to SA from NSW a couple of years ago!!
Hope this helps
