If you have access to the Al Mourjan business lounge, they have some sleeping pods, and also some rooms / sectioned off areas down in the back corner. Have used both many times on overnight transits. 21 hours is tough, though.Thanks for this. Also FYI, for anyone flying Qatar, I have tried to call and ask, spoke to 3 people who couldn't give me a straight answer. It seems like staff working the phone are useless at knowing this info, at least in my experience.
In any case, I have also checked the "Frequently Asked Questions" of the DOH website, and it does actually state this:
"The COVID-19 RAT must be done no more than 24 hours before the scheduled departure time of your flight (or first flight if you have one or more connecting flights booked for your travel to Australia)."
This can be found at this link:

Thankfully there is an airport hotel there which is in the transit area! It's not ideal, but it'll have to do.
At least now I can rest not having to worry about testing. I will be saving offline copies of the Australian DOH info just in case QR staff aren't aware.
