Hand Luggage Restrictions
The following hand luggage restrictions apply to all passengers arriving on international flights, passengers who are transiting in Australia and passengers travelling on the domestic leg of an international flight within Australia.
Liquid, aerosol or gel products (including toiletries) must be in containers of 100mililitres or less (broadly equivalent to 100grams or less). The containers must be carried in one transparent, resealable plastic bag (no larger than 20cm x 20cm or 15cm x25cm). Containers larger than 100 millilitres, even if only partially-filled, will not be allowed through the security screening point.
Necessary prescription and non-prescription medicines (including special dietary products), medical items and baby products are exempt from the 100 millilitre limit but will need to be presented separately at airport security screening along with any supporting documentation (eg: prescription or medical certificate in the same name matching the passengers boarding pass) and are permitted at the security officer's discretion. Other prohibited hand luggage items include weapons, explosive, flammable and caustic materials and any items with sharp edges or points capable of injuring someone.
Any prohibited items or excess liquids, aerosols or gels will be confiscated at airport security. Valuable items such as lap-tops, cell-phones and cameras are accepted as cabin luggage but will be subject to security screening checks.
