A tourist in Perth has been fined $13,000 after skipping hotel quarantine to go on a five hour nightclub partying session.
The 25-year-old man had flown into Perth from Adelaide on December 11 and was ordered to remain in hotel quarantine for 14-days in the city centre.
The next day, a routine compliance check by WA Police found he was missing from his room and not answering his phone, leading officers to track down the tourist and arrest him.
