Biosecurity Matters

​​​​​​Australia is free from many pests and diseases found around the world.

Our animal, plant and human health rely on stringent controls and measures to manage the risk of these pests and diseases entering and becoming established in Australia.

This is known as biosecurity.

Many people are familiar with quarantine at the border and in airports, but there are many other biosecurity measures in place within Australia. As members of the community, we all have a role to play and there are things you can do to help protect Australia from unwanted pests and diseases.
