Working closely with Destination NSW and Australian Capital Tourism, 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’s sub-committees in Port Stephens and Byron Bay actively tackle region-specific issues. We reimburse 50% of membership fees received from regional operators to be used by the sub-committee.
