​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Fruit fly was detected in Tasmania in early 2018. The Government, industry and the community have ​worked hard to eradicate this pest from our state. 

Every Tasmanian can help protect our state from a future fruit fly outbreak by following these simple guidelines:

  • Most importantly, do NOT bring host produce into Tasmania. Fines may apply.

  • Be on the lookout for signs of fruit fly​ and report suspect produce to Biosecurity Tasmania on 6165 3774.

Visit our Traveller's Guide webpage for further information on what you can and cannot bring to Tasmania.
