Returnees from Australia

Quarantine Free Travel with Australia has been suspended since 23 July but since then there have been a number of managed return flights, which ended on Friday.

As a result of Queensland’s decision over the weekend to enter a three-day lockdown in parts of the state, we’re contacting all travellers who’ve returned since last Monday, asking them to check locations of interest on the Queensland Health website.
