A working holiday is a great way to see Australia and make some great memories and lifelong friends.
Please be aware that there are a number of pest and diseases that occur in one state and not another. The fruit and vegetable growers in each state are relying on anyone planning to take fresh fruit and vegetables across borders to be aware of what’s allowed and not allowed.
If in doubt throw it out, or call 1800 064 881 or the contact numbers in your destination state for advice on what can and can’t be moved around the country with you.
It’s not just fruit and vegetables: pests and diseases can also travel on muddy boots, clothes and hats. If you make sure you clean anything that you have worn on one farm before moving onto another, you’ll be doing you bit to protect the industry.
The fruit and vegetable growers of Australia thank you for your valuable contribution.
Enjoy our beautiful country and have a great working holiday!
