Prohibited Items and Weapons
Some items are classified as prohibited items, weapons and dangerous goods that cannot be carried on board an aircraft. If you have any of these items in your carryon baggage, you will need to surrender these at the screening point. Surrendered items are dealt with in accordance with the relevant state and territory legislation. If in doubt about whether an item can be carried on board, check with your airline prior to arriving at the airport. In some cases, you may be able to pack the item in your checked baggage.
For further information on what cannot be taken on board an aircraft, please see the Aviation Transport Security Act 2004, the Aviation Transport Security Regulations 2005 and the Aviation Transport Security (Prohibited Items) Instrument 2012 at: Federal Register of Legislation
The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) also has a list of dangerous goods that are not permitted in your carry-on or checked baggage. Before you pack, visit the Can I pack that? dangerous goods app to check what items you can and cannot take onboard
