State and Territory Notifiable Animal Diseases lists

State and territory governments recognise the importance of protecting Australia from exotic animal diseases and managing endemic animal diseases.

Each state and territory has a list of 'notifiable' animal diseases. These lists contain animal diseases that are of national concern.

These diseases are notifiable, meaning there is a legal requirement for anyone who suspects or diagnoses a disease on the list, to immediately notify their relevant state or territory animal health authority.

The requirement to report notifiable disease is contained in individual state and territory legislation. States and territory notifiable disease lists contain all the diseases in the national list and can include others specific to that state or territory.

Below are links to each state and territory's notifiable disease list.
