I don't know about Australia but in New Zealand they're totally paranoid about anything to do with nuts. Here's how paranoid.

We came to NZ via Raratonga which is basically New Zealand East Island. Same shops, same bank, same everything. We stocked up with bits and pieces from the supermarket.

When we got to NZ the MAF boys found a SEALED tin of assorted nuts and confiscated it. When I handed the tin over (expensive) I pointed to some print on the tin and asked "Does this mean anything?" to which he responded "No it doesn't"

What did the print say? "Packed in New Zealand".

Go figure
