The Association

The Accommodation Association is a national body which has evolved out of the former Hotel Motel & Accommodation Association. The purpose of the Association is to provide a unified voice for the tourism accommodation sector.

For 50 years, the Association has had a service culture which is reflected in the decision made by premium hotel brands to join us, to give the accommodation beds sector in Australia specialised attention.

The Accommodation Association’s membership is made up of around 1000 properties, including hotels, resorts, serviced apartments, motels, bed & breakfasts, guesthouses, backpacker establishments, caravan parks and timeshare properties in metropolitan, regional and rural Australia.

One of the Accommodation Association’s core activities is to build and maintain strong, positive relationships with key federal and state/territory political decision-makers. Our goal is to provide real information and tangible evidence on how policy issues are having an impact on the business of tourism accommodation beds in Australia.
