Some fruit and vegetables such as tomatoes and capsicums cannot be brought over the SA border. Fruit and vegetables purchased in SA must be in the retailer’s original packaging where possible and you must have all the receipts if you are stopped by a random fruit fly inspection patrol on the Sturt Highway at Blanchetown.

We recommend buying all fruit and vegetables in Renmark.
