MACHINERY WASH DOWN FACILITIES

It is very easy for seeds to become lodged in cracks and crevices, including tyre treads, radiators, licence plates and the chassis of vehicles or machines driven through weed-infested areas. These seeds may then be carried for long distances before dislodging and contaminating new areas.

It is an offence in Queensland to move or transport a vehicle on a road if it is known (or should be known) that it or its load is contaminated with a declared plant, unless the load is contained.

Washdown bays are provided to help prevent the spread of weed seeds by allowing drivers to remove weed seeds, soil and other foreign matter from vehicles and machines.

Wash down bays are located at:

  • BARALABA:  Rannes Road, Baralaba (opposite the showgrounds)
