Domestic travel- quarantine restrictions?

Just wondering if there are any quarantine restrictions in domestic travel (North to South Island)? In particular, fruit & veg?

Thanks

item purchased in NZ there is no problem for travel. for a while beehives were the only item not permitted to cross the cook straight due to the vero mite which had become established..

At one time it was not possible to move pine trees from one island to another either!!! So long as you only plan to move normal food items (and no beehives or pine trees) you'll be fine.

Thanks, I'll make sure I leave the beehives and pine trees out of my bags!
