What you can't bring into Tasmania
Tasmania has some of the world's most stringent quarantine regulations. Please help us retain Tasmania's disease-free status by ensuring that when you visit us you are not carrying or importing any restricted items. The introduction of a pest or disease into a production area can result in expensive controls being implemented and loss of markets, which can cost primary industries and the community millions of dollars.
