Please note the import restrictions established to minimise the risk of Myrtle Rust entering Tasmania:

Learn more »

  • Myrtaceae - All species in the family Myrtaceae are currently prohibited entry to Tasmania (see Appendix 2.2 of the Plant Biosecurity Manual Tasmania), unless prospective importers have sought and been granted written approval to import by means of a Section 67 exemption under the Plant Quarantine Act 1997 via application to Biosecurity Tasmania.
  • Nursery stock - If you are searching TBIRD for import requirements associated with a specific commodity, if that commodity is ‘Nursery Stock’ then Import Requirement 38 will apply in addition to the listed Import Requirements. Nursery stock means plants in soil-less potting media, bulbs, corms and rhizomes, and bare-rooted plants or cuttings, with or without leaves. It does not include plant tissue cultures, cut flowers, seeds or bagged or bulk potting media. Separate conditions and restrictions apply to those items. Prospective importers should consult other parts of this manual as relevant, or confirm conditions and restrictions with Biosecurity Tasmania.

Welcome to the new TBIRD System (Beta early access)

TBIRD is a new system that allows you to search Animal, Plant, Weeds and Wildlife based entry conditions for imports into Tasmania. Improving access to information for both members of the public and commercial importers alike.

Please keep an eye on this site over the coming months as we continue to make improvements in an effort to provide a better service to clients who wish to import items into Tasmania. If you have any suggestions, would like to report any issues or provide feedback please make contact with us at: tbird@dpipwe.tas.gov.au we would value your contribution.

Please note that TBIRD is a new product and while we have sought to include a full range of commodities into the system, we may have missed something. If your search does not return a result please have a look at the below links for further information:
