Help Fight the Hotel Quarantine Fee!
Mandatory hotel quarantine was introduced by the Australian government in March 2020 as a public health measure in response to COVID-19. It was free for everyone returning from overseas or interstate until July 2020, at which time the government began charging $3000 per person.
Listen to my podcast if you’d like to know what this policy decision did to ordinary Australians who were just trying to get home.
It is my contention that this fee is unlawful and I wish to challenge the legality in court. There are thousands of us who feel the same way. This challenge will be done strategically and in stages.

Stage One: Document Review
This first stage is a document review and Peter Fam, an experienced human rights lawyer, will be reviewing all correspondence and documentation between the government and myself to ascertain whether “we” have a case.
If it looks like we do, then we will proceed to the next stage. If not, well, that’s it for the time being.
This request for donations is to cover my legal costs of $600 for the document review.
