$12,000 of expenses in three days?

A key segment is:

And although Golriz Ghahraman resigned on Jan 16 she still incurred $11,920 of expenses. That includes $6,292 of accommodation costs which may have committed. But $4,738 of ‘surface’ travel?

That does seem exceptionally high, especially as she was overseas until the 13th of January so that is $12,000 of expenses over three days? Perhaps there is a simple explanation such as unclaimed expenses from the previous quarter?

UPDATE: The Greens have said some of it is from the previous quarter and also it appears MPs who resign can keep charging up expenses for a month after their resignation.
