Can you take rabbits to Oz?
We have two houses rabbits, Honey and Tassletip and they want to come too.

I suggest you ring one of the pet carriers, they'll be able to tell you whether they'd be allowed into Aus, after the due quarantine of course.

Rabbits

I too have a house rabbit but was told by an Australian friend that is illegal to keep rabbits as pets in Australia as they are considered vermin.

As I say though, this was just a friend that told me, nothing official so hopefully not true :cry:

Hi Sally,

That's definitely not true. We kept rabbits for a few years, and lots of kids have them as pets. However, whether they can be brought into the country is another matter. We have more than enough here already :lol:
