Default Travelling to the National Rally - Please Read.

I have been asked to pass on the following information to those readers who may be travelling to the National Rally at Murray Bridge.
In an attempt to save your money and not burning a hole in your wallet,
It is printed here for your interest

P.s. I’m just the messenger

Restrictions apply for people bringing fruit, vegetables, other plants and plant products into South Australia.

As of 4 January 2019, if caught with fruit or fruiting vegetables illegally at the Yamba Quarantine Station you will be fined. A zero tolerance approach is also in place at random quarantine roadblock operations in South Australia.
Signs and disposal bins are located across the state including at road entry points, airports and rail terminals. You can use these locations to dispose of restricted products.
Road signs will inform you that you must dispose of restricted fruit and vegetables before you enter South Australia. Additional signs are placed within the state to inform you when you are approaching the Riverland fruit fly exclusion zone.

What you can bring into South Australia
Fresh fruit and fruiting vegetables cannot be carried from interstate into South Australia, unless they comply with import requirements. [Commercial importers generally need a plant health certificate or plant health assurance certificate]to bring these items into the State.]
Uncertified fresh fruit and fruiting vegetables (those generally carried by the travelling public) cannot be brought into the state. Fines and penalties of up $100,000 apply if you breach these regulations and requirements.

Taking Fruit and Vegetables into the Riverland
Restrictions apply for taking fresh fruit and vegetables into the Riverland fruit fly exclusion zone from other parts of South Australia to help protect the Riverland’s status as a recognised pest free area for fruit fly.

You will be fined if you are found carrying restricted fruit and vegetables past the disposal bins.
