Working closely with Destination NSW and Tourism Australia, we help promote NSW & ACT as desirable destinations for both overseas and interstate travellers.
BOA acts as a spokesperson for the industry, lobbies state and local government on issues relevant to the industry, and develops and enhances services available to backpacker operators.
We oversee a code of ethics between operators and the public, and promote a co-operative and relationship between all backpacker operators.
BOA is a not-for-profit organisation, directed by a membership-elected committee. Our committee members come from all sectors of the industry, ensuring a broad sector representation.
Feel free to turn to any of our committee members for advice, as well as to raise any issues.
BOA members range from all sectors of the industry, including accommodation providers, tour operators, transport providers, media publishers, travel agents, technology providers and entertainment organisers.
We regularly organise fun and engaging industry events, giving members the opportunity to catch up and mingle with new and familiar faces.
