Inside Mark Wahlberg’s $2500 per night quarantine retreat in Byron Bay – which features a pool, 24/7 security, a private ambulance on standby and will cost the Hollywood star as much as $400,000 for his whole stay

Mark Wahlberg is currently quarantining in a luxury retreat outside of Byron Bay. 

After arriving in Australia last week with his encourage, the Hollywood star flew to Byron Bay via private jet before making his way to the $2500 per night property.

It is understood that the 49-year-old was granted permission to skip the usual hotel quarantine and allowed to self-isolate at the private estate instead.

There’s also a private ambulance on standby too.

According to estimates, the total cost of the two-week quarantine could set the actor back around $400,000.
