​Planning ahead before you get to the airport will help you get through security screening quickly and easily. There are restrictions on what you can pack in your baggage or carry onto an aircraft. Check in advance what you can and can’t bring.

Some items have the potential to be used to harm other passengers and crew. You cannot take these items beyond the security screening point or on board an aircraft.

If a screening officer finds these items in your carry-on baggage, you will not be able to take the items through the screening point. Airports and airlines do not have to store or return items to you.

If you aren’t sure if you can take an item, check with your airline or leave it at home. In some circumstances, you may be able to pack the item in your checked baggage, but you should check this with your airline.​

Checked Baggage

While some items that cannot be carried onto an aircraft can be packed in your checked baggage, you should check with your airline in advance. Some items are considered dangerous goods and may be dangerous even in your checked baggage. The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) administers the rules and regulations for dangerous goods.

If you aren’t sure if something is a dangerous good, check if any restrictions apply at Can I pack that?
