There is no limit on how much powders, liquids, aerosols and gels you can carry onboard. The weight of your allowable carry on bag is set by the various airlines.



There are limits as to what you can bring in and take out of Australia for liquids, aerosols, gels and powders. Limits on powders does not apply to baby food and cannot exceed 350 grams.

The amount is 100 mls or 100 grams per person.

 Containers must fit into one transparent and re-sealable plastic bag, like a snap-lock bag. 

Exemptions to the limits

You can take baby formula, prescription and non-prescription medicines (including special dietary products) and medical items on-board if you need them during the flight. Please carry with you evidence about your medicines and medical items. This evidence may be a doctor’s letter explaining why you need the medicine.

All organic powders are exempt. This includes most powdered foods, coffee, protein powder and baby formula.
