Hi guys, We are leaving for a long trip from WA and was wondering if the quarantine checkpoint is in both directions from SA or just on the way coming back into WA??

Cheers, Dave

The SA checkpoint is on the outskirts of Ceduna - that way you can enjoy your fruit and vegies up till the point where you can buy some more. NOT SO in WA of course :-o).... there you have to be fruitless and vegieless at the border and then risk your health eating hard tack all the way to Norseman !! (sigh).

Coming across the Nullabor it is just before you get to Ceduna.

The checkpoint at Border Village doesnt operate in that direction as I went to stop and the Roadtrain behind me gave me a quick lesson LOL

I didnt have time to notice if it was open for business going west.

Travelling into and within South Australia

It is illegal to carry fruit and vegetables across all borders into South Australia, unless they have been certified free of pests and diseases.

South Australian Quarantine roadblocks and honesty bins are strategically placed throughout South Australia. Mobile quarantine roadblocks operate on country roads.

Don't risk a $100,000 fine

There is currently a fruit fly outbreak in the Mildura (VIC) area and it has the potential to wreak havoc with their export programs. Could cost them millions of dollars. South Australia is generally fruit fly free and the Govt. has every desire and intention (as do growers and producers) to keep it that way.
Any breaches of the above are treated seriously and heavy fines can be imposed.

If you want to check on what you CAN'T bring back into WA check out the following website
agric.wa.gov.au and go to quarantine pages

or pull off the road at the Border checkpoint and ask the inspectors.
