Queensland fruit fly surveillance in Greater Sunraysia

The Greater Sunraysia Pest Free Area (GSPFA) is in north-western Victoria and south-western New South Wales. The GSPFA was established to provide local table grape, stone fruit and citrus industries with the control over Queensland fruit fly (QFF) management in the region.

The Greater Sunraysia Pest Free Area (GSPFA) runs along the Murray river in north-west Victoria and the Darling river in south-west of New South Wales and includes the townships of Pooncarie, Wentworth, Mildura, Robinvale, Nyah, Swan Hill and Kerang.


QFF traps are placed in a grid system to monitor this pest.

In towns, fruit fly traps are positioned 400 metres apart, while in orchards they are placed 1 kilometre apart. These traps are cleared fortnightly throughout the year.

Additional QFF monitoring programs are in place in the Goulburn Murray Valley and Yarra Valley. For more information, see our action on QFF in regional Victoria page.
