Groote Eylandt Biosecurity

Quarantine and Biosecurity across the Groote Archipelago is vitally important to help protect the pristine ecosystems and unique native flora and fauna from introduced pests and diseases. The Groote Archipelago is relatively free from many of the introduced and invasive species that are common across Northern Australia including feral pigs, water buffalo, goats, tramp ants, cane toads and gamba grass. It is vital for the economic, environmental and social values that the Groote Archipelago remains free of invasive plants, animals and diseases.

Please note that luggage will be inspected for cane toads and other biosecurity threats. Animals (including dogs) are not permitted on this ferry service.
