A $524.2 million investment in Australia’s biosecurity system included in Federal Budget will deliver a state-of-the-art quarantine facility and strengthen Australia’s defences against pests and diseases.

This new funding will see more than $1.6 billion invested in biosecurity by the Federal Government since 2009, safeguarding the agricultural sector and underpinning Australia’s strong reputation as a reliable exporter of high-quality food and fibre.

Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Senator Joe Ludwig said $379.9 million has been allocated over seven years for the construction of a state-of-the-art post-entry quarantine facility in Melbourne.
“This facility will mean Australia will have the newest and most advanced technology available to manage the import of high-risk plant and animal material,” Minister Ludwig said.
