Travelling within Victoria

Movement of plant products into and/or out of the following zones is regulated:

 

Greater Sunraysia Pest Free Area
The Greater Sunraysia Pest Free Area (PFA) was established to protect fruit production areas along the Murray River from Queensland fruit fly. Do not take fruit or fruiting vegetables (including capsicum, chilli, tomato and eggplant) into the PFA. Fruit disposal bins are in place in the PFA and quarantine roadblocks may operate in this zone. Signs on major roads indicate when you are entering the PFA. 

Phylloxera control areas 
Control areas have been established in Victoria to prevent the spread of the grapevine pest phylloxera. Signs on major roads indicate when you are entering a Phylloxera Exclusion Zone or leaving a Phylloxera Infested Zone, and that restrictions on the movement of grapevines exist for each zone.

Potato Plant Protection Districts
Potato Plant Protection Districts (PPDs) are established around some Victorian seed potato production regions in order to reduce biosecurity threats. Signs on major roads indicate when you are entering a PPD and what restrictions on potato movement apply.

Toolangi Plant Protection District
The Toolangi Plant Protection District is a protected area in which plant breeding programs are conducted. The entry of plants for propagation into this area is restricted.

 

For more information about these zones, please contact DEPI Victoria on 136 186 or visit DEPI - Moving plants and plant products.
