Qld proposes another quarantine facility near Brisbane Airport

Queensland is taking another stab at launching its own quarantine hub, with new plans drawn up for a facility near Brisbane Airport.

It comes after the Prime Minister dashed plans for the Toowoomba proposal, saying it was too difficult to get international arrivals there.

He then also suggested the Damascus Barracks in Pinkenba as a better location.


The state government now has details for a 1,000 room facility there, which could cater for close to 1,500 international arrivals.

The proposal’s reportedly been submitted to the federal government for consideration.
