"DO NOT PACK electric fly/mosquito swatter" Australia Packing List Tip by UKDaisy

Australia What to Pack: 85 reviews and 62 photos

Miscellaneous: For some reason, electric fly/mosquito swatters (often comes in the shape of a tennis racquet) are prohibited in Australia. We had ours confiscated at Perth airport. It would've come in very handy as we were in Australia during the fly season and they (the flies) really annoyed us. I guess the government have banned them to protect the flies, as if I still had mine, there would've been a lot of dead flies!!!
