Surveillance will be conducted by Authorised Officers, predominantly by visual ground inspection. Inspection may also be undertaken by aerial survey or fixed camera traps

(e) Provide information and advice to property owners or relevant parties regarding the level of risk and appropriate control measures required to meet their general biosecurity obligation

(f) Provide information about support programs that may be available, and
