I am currently in quarantine in Perth Australia. There was no chance to walk away at the airport, once off the plane you proceed to passport control and luggage collection, then you are interviewed by a police officer handed a Centre direction notification, then herded onto buses, once all passengers are on the buses, a police escort takes you to a hotel. Once there you will be in confinement for two weeks, personal items are confiscated (cigarettes, alcohol, sharps) in one
room. The room has no opening windows and you are not allowed to leave your room for any reason, food is sent to your room, you do not get a choice in what you are given, dietary needs are not met (unless you really make a fuss about it). It is only once you are here do they tell you that they will carry out a Covid test on your 12th day, if you refuse they threaten you, saying it is mandatory and you will not be released on the 14th day if you do not comply. Convicted criminals are treated better. If you can avoid traveling do, as it seems you have no rights at all once the powers that be have you in their custody. Good luck and stay free.
