Petair knew that at some point soon Sydney quarantine would close and all pets will have to travel to the new large quarantine station in Melbourne. We have had a date put forward by a friendly agent in Australia that Sydney will close on October 15th. so if you want to travel late summer or early Autumn then you are best to get the flights and process started soon so that you can get the space booked. this is the message we have received -
The Australian Government Department of Agriculture has Decided to cease taking bookings at our Eastern Creek Quarantine Facility for arrivals after 16 October 2015. This is in keeping with the consolidation of Post Entry Quarantine to one facility in Melbourne. For further information on the new Quarantine Facility in Mickleham Victoria please click here.
There will be an official announcement from Biosecurity Australia at some point soon, but this is the first warning.
Here is a video to help you visualise what is going to happen
