For people travelling out of Western Australia across the Eyre Highway (Nullarbor), the quarantine checkpoint is at Ceduna. If you are travelling into Western Australia the quarantine checkpoint is at the Border Village (WA/SA) state border.

For people travelling to South Australia, make sure you eat your fresh fruit and vegetables before you get there! You will not be allowed to take any fresh produce (fruit & veg) through. Good news! You can keep your honey! and the Esperance Visitor Centre stocks locally made honey. Soil is another issue, if you are taking any plants through, check at the border village and ask for assistance.
