Don’t forget to check Australia’s biosecurity requirements when packing your personal items. Some food, plant material and animal products are not permitted and should not be brought to Australia. Airport clearance is quicker if you don’t bring food, plant material or animal products. Most of these items can be easily purchased in Australia.
