Are all Qantas Clubs including regional lounges just flash your card and go or do they all have the international style checkin for the lounge?

The usual ex-SYD and ex-MEL jibes aside, the OP was worded "Qantas Clubs including regional lounges"; I am disinclined to interpret there being any suggestion implied or otherwise that BNE is 'regional'.

Having got that out of my system, I should note that I've noticed the lounge entry process is a bit less formal now; I deployed one service recovery invititation earlier this month at the MEL T1 QP and it was accepted by the dragon without so much as a cursory glance at my BP.

Could you mail me an expired (e.g. last year's) SG/WP card or something? LOL

For the record, this is expressly intended to be a joke between TRB and I; I do not condone scamming lounge access at all.

Never said Brisbane was regional but I do plan on traveling to regional airports soon and have a non QF earning card attached to boarding pass which might make life harder when accessing a regional lounge like TSV and ROK
