Are tripods allowed through the security checkpoint at sydney domestic airport? I'm flying home tomorrow from sydney to ballina and wondering if they let it on, it'll be in a gym bag with clothes and some technology including my DSLR kit. Silly mum only bought a ticket with carry on lugguage instead of check-in. So if I aren't allowed, I'll have to post it. I've tried calling the security department but their office is unattended atm (WTF?? ), but i left a message, describing my situation and for them to call me back, but i doubt they would though.
