Mark Wahlberg has been given special treatment in Australia, after arriving in the country on Monday.

Mark will spend 14 days at the private home, which is reportedly costing him more than $400,000.
According to the NSW Government website, people returning from overseas are only exempt from staying at a quarantine hotel if there are ‘strong medical, health or compassionate grounds’.
After completing his mandatory two-week quarantine, Mark will reportedly fly back to Sydney to film an ad for online betting agency Ladbrokes.
The actor was spotted arriving in Sydney with his entourage via private jet on Monday night. He then boarded a second aircraft bound for Byron Bay.
