    Hi

    I am planning to bring my bike from New Zealand to Australia (it is on Danish plates), and need a temporary insurance in Australia. Anybody knows where to get that?

    Much of that info was wrong or out of date when I read the exact same document back in 2008 so I doubt it's got any better since :lol3

    For our 2009 trip there on Kiwi bikes we used Swann Insurance for full cover but I'm not sure they'll still do foreign vehicles. Don't mention temporary, just take the pay by installment option & cancel it when you leave.

    As for what insurance etc you actually need legally, that's a whole other mess. Best to contact each state's transport dept cos they all have different rules for visiting vehicles. When we entered via NSW there were no requirements apart from customs/AQIS, SA had a TAC insurance we paid for the time we were there, gave up trying to get sense out of SA & just winged it.

    Cheers
