Inspection only works when travelling west to east. No need to worry in your case.

And the old rule was if you have not been out of the state, you can bring it back through, just check at the ceduna check point of this

What a disgusting thing to say about one of our quarantine stations, this is why Australia and South Africa the ONLY TWO countries in the World that doesn't have the chicken virus because of our strict quarantine laws

I suppose you would be happy if our entire fruit agriculture would be lost because a simpleton like yourself would be more than happy to bring in disease fruit

Honestly, some ppl cannot make a derogatory name except using Nazi's dispictable regime

There is no check going west until Eucla, the check is for east bound only. We stayed in Ceduna and did day trips further west, the quarantine just waved us through when returning to town, they seem discern between local traffic and travellers from the west. As I understand the rules, if you can provide a receipt proving place of purchase that will be accepted. Why buy too much fruit for the trip to Maralinga in Ceduna if you are coming back to Ceduna?

On minor roads, you are on your honesty Boobook. Easy to do the right thing and so important. Theoretically random checks can occur anywhere, and fines occur for breaches.

I lived in Ceduna for a while. Always nice fruit at Ceduna Foodland. Keep your receipt. When you're inspected on the way back in, declare any fruit/veg and just show them the paperwork.. By the way, they are really nice blokes, just doing a great job to protect our producers.
Cheers.

OK, try this............

From Woomera travel south down Goog's Track to meet the Eyre Highway just east of the SA quarantine inspection station close to Ceduna. You have not been out of SA, nowhere near WA, but they took all our fruit from us despite our protestations.

Now I believe strongly in quarantine but this was unreasonable and not in accordance with the expressions of some other travellers. If SA wishes to apply quarantine then their station should be at the WA border not 400km east of it. In fact it would make good sense if SA and WA were to operate a joint station at the border, controlling produce going both ways. But State Governments are not known to be very cooperative.

Barry - stop at the inspection station when you leave Ceduna and tell them you are only going to Maralinga, then returning to Ceduna. You will be given a stamped "Pass" with your anticipated return date. Simply hand this to the check station on your return, and you will be waved through, no problems. We did this earlier this year on our visit to Maralinga. Maralinga, by the way, is fantastic. Cheers, Rodger
