Travellers tend to arrive in unprecedented numbers in Queensland amid strict border restrictions on coronavirus by the state, police say.
On Thursday, officers inspected 65 flights with more than 2,600 passengers at Queensland airports, with five denied entry, and 142 quarantined.
Police stopped 4575 vehicles on the roads at the border, turning about 253 and ordering 54 people to isolate themselves.
“There’s an extraordinary amount of people still coming into Queensland,” Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll said.
“We’re getting people literally moving to the state.”
“The number is just incredible,” she said.
“These are challenging times.”
There are now eight active coronavirus cases in the Sunshine State, with the state’s total now sitting at 1,091.
