Star Ratings Australia
Queensland and New South Wales

"Star Ratings Australia" is an internationally recognised symbol for quality accommodation standards. They are used in more than 70 countries worldwide and reflect the cleanliness, quality and condition of guest accommodation and facilities. A property’s Star Rating is evaluated by our experienced Assessors using an online program that comprises over 200 criteria, developed through feedback from Australian travellers about their accommodation priorities.

Star Ratings Australia - is now owned and managed by the various State Tourism Industry Councils.  In 2017 The Tourism Group was contracted to carry out the On-site assessments for both New South Wales and Queensland with over 800 accommodation properties assessed and rated.  This assessment role not only ensures consistency of the products but also provides visitors with an independent and reliable benchmark when selecting their accommodation. The Tourism Group working closely with The NSW Business Chamber of Commerce and Queensland Tourism Industry Council (QTIC) also took the opportunity to educate and promote the values of tourism to the accommodation sector and the importance of supporting the industry generally.  The Tourism Group continues to assist QTIC in on-site assessments and accreditation administration across a wide spectrum of tourism operators.
