Know if your mate is welcome interstate
Moving interstate can be a hassle at the best of times and not everyone realises that there are biosecurity rules in place for moving between states, particularly in regards to restrictions on the types of pets people can keep.
Restrictions are managed state by state, so it is important to check before transporting your animals over the border or other quarantine zones. Rabbits, cats and bees are all examples of animals that have some interstate restrictions and, while this doesn’t apply to all states, it is important to check if there are any restrictions before you move.
You can find out what these restrictions are by downloading a copy of
