Any travellers heading through the fruit fly exclusion zone should check www.pestfreearea.com.au for an up to date list of banned produce.
The few times that we have approached the area has produced many arguements over the uhf over what is/isn't banned.
Cheers.

Personally it's a crock... you can travel from Sydney to Adelaide, hand over your fruit, drive into Renmark buy more then hand it over again... I thought the little things had wings? Best tip is to cut you fruit up into salad and put it in your cooler or fridge, it's then an allowable product...

The rate that growers are 'falling by the way-side- because of lack of water for irrigation, F/F checks might soon become a thing of the past. In the meantime just ask any of them of the importance of 'bio-security' and the need to keep FF out of SA and many parts of VIC.

Cheers for the link !

Best way of the lot, is not to carry fruit & veg into, or out of, these areas, or take it in cans.

Purchase fruit and veg within the areas, and keep receipts.

I cannot be bothered "blewing" over what is, or what is not banned, as those officers ( mongrels ) are renouned for changing the rules "on the run", just to prove a point. ( Why ... because they can)

Cheers
Bucky
