Has anyone tried to take sea shells into Australia, either in the shipping container or in hand luggage? Did customs let them through & did they need fumigating? If so, how much did it cost? We have a small collection that we would like to take with us but we're getting different stories from the removals companies - one said no, one said yes, another said we'd have to varnish them and another said take in hand luggage on the plane. As far as I can tell, hand luggage is subject to the same DAFF restrictions as shipping by sea so I'm not sure how this helps.... Thanks!
Our gear is being shipped over from UK, are the aussie custom officals likely to not allow me to take my shells into the country? They are all clean and decorative etc. Also I've a bongo drum not sure if the skin is synthetic or real, is this likely to cause probs?
