Random question but planning on moving to Oz and now panicking that I have to leave my beloved dogs ashes behind (she only died 2 months ago so a bit raw).

How do I go about taking her with me?

Human and animal ashes are allowed into Australia and do not require accompanying documentation. If the ashes are contained in a container made of wood or other material of quarantine concern, the container must be declared and inspected on arrival at the airport to ensure the container is free from contamination, such as bark or insect infestation. To check the container for insect infestation, look closely for holes, sawdust or any signs of boring insects. If signs of insect infestation are found, the wooden item must be fumigated. Fumigation or re-export of the items must be paid for by the importer.

Thanks for that. Her ashes are sealed in a wooden dog. Have crem certificate but unsure how were would go about "fumigating" the wooden dog. No signs of woodworm etc

Please could you re-post the link - it doesn't seem to work

Sorry, can't as copied verbatim from another forum to which I belong. Looks like you might have to search again on the government site.
