​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Tasmania is an island with a natural water barrier which helps protect us from invasive pests such as fruit fly. Fruit fly host produce brought into the state by visitors and Tasmanians returning home poses a real threat to our agricultural industries, economy, environment and our way of life.

It is the responsibility of all those entering Tasmania to follow our strict biosecurity regulations.

You can help protect ​Tasmania

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

Tasmania's biosecurity is a shared responsibility. Your help in being vigilant and obeying the strict import requirements is essential to protecting our industries, economy, environment and our way of life from the consequences of unwanted pest and disease incursions.
