THE AFL has finally confirmed the last details for round 20 which will send Melbourne on a whirlwind tour of Australia that will end in quarantine in Western Australia.

Melbourne will fly to Queensland for its clash with Gold Coast on Saturday via charter flight. That match will take place at 3.10pm AEST on Saturday afternoon at Metricon Stadium.

Directly after the game, the Demons will then travel to Western Australia on another charter flight to begin a quarantine period ahead of their round 21 clash with West Coast. 

The AFL said in a statement on Thursday that Melbourne had agreed to strict travel arrangements and other protocols which was approved by the Queensland Government.


The Greater Western Sydney clash with Port Adelaide on Sunday will also go ahead at Metricon at 3.10pm AEST.

Port Adelaide - which has been temporarily based in Melbourne since last week - will fly into the Gold Coast for the match on Sunday via charter flight. After the match, Port will return home to South Australia.

Adelaide meets the Western Bulldogs in Ballarat on Saturday and are due to host a Showdown against the Power at Adelaide Oval in round 21.

Brisbane faces a similar outlook, travelling from Launceston to Perth after Sunday's meeting with Hawthorn.

The Lions will also spend a week in quarantine before playing against Fremantle at Optus Stadium in round 21.

Meanwhile, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews said on Thursday all events will be assessed on a case-by-case basis when it comes to crowd limits.
