We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New year.

Grow Help Australia receives and tests samples from all over Australia. You are responsible for meeting any quarantine laws before sending the sample. Ensure you include Attn: Grow Help Australia on all packages.

Before sending, ensure you correctly package your samples, and complete the online sample submission form.

Delivering in person

You can drop off samples to the loading dock on Joe Baker Street between 7.30am and 3.30pm, Monday to Friday.

  1. Drive up Boggo Road and turn right at the roundabout (there's only one way to go and there are significant construction activities impacting Joe Baker Street).
  2. Drive down to the bottom of the hill on Joe Baker Street (there are no street numbers) to the B3 loading dock sign.
  3. The loading dock has a roller door with a buzzer to hand over samples.
  4. Ring the buzzer for help if there is no one present when you arrive.
  5. Label your personally delivered sample as:

Attn: Grow Help Australia
Department of Agriculture and Fisheries
Ecosciences Precinct
Loading Dock, Basement 3
Joe Baker Street
