Guide to Help Running a B and B business in Australia

 When you manage a hosted accommodation business you are part of Australia’s extensive tourism industry and you are responsible for providing professional and friendly service. However relaxed an approach you mean to take, you are going into business by starting up a bed and breakfast, not just starting a hobby.


As the peak organisation for its industry sector across Australia, Hosted Accommodation Australia (HAA) has an important role in assisting you, as a potential accommodation owner to establish and maintain your business to the highest possible standards. 


For help in running a B and B business, you will need to develop a comprehensive business plan to determine that what you are planning is feasible and that your new business stands the best chance of rewarding you for the effort you invest in it. This may mean consulting an accountant and/or solicitor. 


HAA’s publication, A Guide to Establishing and Managing an Accommodation Business is perfect for giving help in running a B and B business as it covers all aspects of developing a business with internet and telephone contact details provided for the government agencies and other organisations you will need to consult. It also has templates for business plans, marketing plans, budget checklist, templates for guest registration forms and other useful documents. You can purchase the *Guide online, or by phoning the HAA Office on 1300 664 707.


If after reading through this section you have any further questions about starting up a Bed and Breakfast, farmstay or any other type of hosted accommodation please contact the HAA Office open Monday to Friday from 9.00am to 5.30pm eastern standard time.  Telephone: 1300 664 707 or email


We trust you will find the information in this section helpful to you in setting up your business and wish you well in your endeavours.
