    Another question please.

    We need to take 4 boxes of formula. So can I just transfer them to ziplocks and put in the check in bags or should we take sealed boxes? Will the ziplocks cause a problem with the customs there?

    I'd take them sealed. Australian quarantine is pretty full on about food entering the country and if they can't identify it easily they may confiscate it. At least if its sealed the officer can see exactly what it is and there should be no issues. We have taken formula in no problems and some of the time they've not even asked to see it, but be prepared that they will want to check it.

    Flack is correct. Australian quarantine is very strict. Keep them in sealed boxes. Just to let you know how strict they are, fruit is strictly prohibited, even if it is given on the plane. You have to dump it.*
