G'day,

i think it is the ones still in their shells that are the concern. eg. like the ones in the enormous macadamia tree in my backyard :) mmmmm, fresh macadamia nuts and home brew in the back yard..............

If the nuts are processed or in a sealed packed they will be OK.
But I would still check with S.A Quaranteen website.

Spuds and carrots can be taken across if PEELED as the peel is the problem not the actual veg. Dont pack anything in cardboard boxes with spud packaging/logo`s on box as boxes will be confiscated as well.

Border keeps changing first time it was near Ceduna, last time it was closer to the border. Bottom line is there is all kinds of filth that live in WA and not in SA honey and fruit are just 2 how hard can it be to to cross the border with BA take stuff all and restock at Ceduna

The quaqrantine station is at the border heading west and just on the outskirts of Ceduna heading east.

As suggested above, check with the authorities as the lists are quite involved and seem to change from time to time.

We have a booklet we picked up at one of the checking stations which is quite good. I believe it is available from the various motoring organisations, NRMA, RAA etc.

It is a good idea to pick up new copies regularly.

Also if you are heading west through Broken Hill to SA there is a checking station 10km east of Broken Hill and another at Oodlawirra which is about 260km west of the Hill in SA on the Barrier Highway. Both west bound only.
