Seems better than the back seat of a Volkswagen, but still uncomfortable.

You know who else was from Australia and set up camps?

14 cruise ships.  out for 2 weeks, departures once a day.

if everyone comes back corona free, they are good to go.  They get off.  Load up the next group for their 2 week cruise.

Someone comes down with it, the sick ones go to the hospital, everyone else gets to ride around again with the next class

I've been to the original Outback in Branson.  Had the "down undah" combo.  I think it was emu, red deer, and something else.  I don't see anything like it on the menu now.  Oh, and we got the gator appetizer.

What you're getting is a leopard colony.

The quarantine camps can be run by Aunty Entity and Max, and for those that break quarantine, they'll have to compete in Thunderdome. The survivor will then have to face the wheel. Problem solved.

Now I want an Outback steak, and some shrimp on the barbie.

The Bloomin Onion is the poster child for the culinary version of "how it started / how it's going".

Original recipe yields 4 servings
Ingredients:
•    ½ cup mayonnaise
•    ¾ tablespoon ketchup
•    2 tablespoons cream-style horseradish sauce
•    ¼ teaspoon paprika
•    ¼ teaspoon salt
•    1 pinch ground black pepper
•    1 pinch cayenne pepper
•    1 egg
•    1 cup milk
•    1 cup all-purpose flour
•    1 ½ teaspoons salt
•    1 ½ teaspoons cayenne pepper
•    ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
•    ½ teaspoon garlic powder
•    ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
•    ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
•    ⅛ teaspoon ground cumin
•    1 large onion
•    2 quarts vegetable oil for deep-frying
Directions
Instructions Checklist
•    Step 1 Make the dipping sauce: Combine mayonnaise, ketchup, horseradish, paprika, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 dash black pepper, and 1 dash cayenne pepper in a small bowl and refrigerate it until needed.
•    Step 2 Beat egg and combine it with milk in a bowl large enough to hold the onion. In another bowl, combine flour, salt, cayenne pepper, black pepper, garlic powder, thyme, oregano, and cumin.
•    Step 3 Prepare the onion: cut approximately 3/4 to 1 inch off of the top and bottom of the onion, remove skin. Remove the 1-inch diameter core from the middle of the onion. Using a large, sharp knife, slice down the center of the onion about 3/4 of the way down, turn 90 degrees and slice again. Keep slicing the sections in half, being careful not to cut to the bottom, until you have 16 sections. Spread the petals apart to make coating easier.
•    Step 4 Dip the onion in the milk, then coat well with the flour mixture. Separate the petals again and sprinkle the flour mixture between them. Once you have coated all of the petals well, dip it into the milk and into the flour mixture again. Place in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes while you preheat the oil.
•    Step 5 Pour enough oil to cover the onion into a deep fryer or deep pot. Preheat the oil to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
•    Step 6 Fry the onion right side up in the oil for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oil and let drain in a rack or paper towels. Open the center of the onion wide so that you can put the small bowl of dipping sauce in the center.

...because taking a group of "others"  in government custody and locating them far away from oversight has worked out really well in the past..

This will end badly.

Australia's a pretty civilized nation. I'd say their policies have been working pretty well, considering that they've only had about 900 COVID-19 deaths. 900 total, that is -- since the beginning of the pandemic. Here in the USA, we had 4140 COVID deaths yesterday, so I'm certainly not gonna start criticizing their pandemic response policies.

We already have detention centres for ' illegal ' immigrants on Christmas Island, about 3,000 miles north west of Australia, nearby New Guinea, and the the tiny island nation Nauru which was known for massive deposits of guano ( sea bird poo ). Miners stripped the guano and surrounding vegetation, leaving a bare wasteland when they abandoned the mines.

The abandoned and current outback mines were and are great places for single men ( and now women ) to save a lot of money ( current average salary around USD 90,000 p.a. ) and nowhere nearby to spend it. Mining unions ensured our single rooms and canteen are air conditioned and well insulated. The canteens provided a good variety of food, meals on par with any 5 star restaurant in the city.

Snakes will shoot through when people start walking around the abandoned mines.
