PEQF (Post Entry Quarantine Facility) was not an acronym I had heard of until I was commissioned to shoot it's new facility that has risen stealth like from the plains of Craigieburn. It's purpose? Australia is free of many diseases and pests that exist in other countries. The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources operates post entry quarantine facilities to help maintain the integrity of Australia’s biosecurity. Animals and plants are not released into Australia until they have fulfilled quarantine requirements – this often includes a period of quarantine at PEQ facilities to ensure animals and plants are free from pests and diseases.
