Queensland Hotels Association


The QHA is the peak industry body in Queensland for the hotel and hospitality industries, accommodation providers, resorts, theme parks, convention centres and casinos. The QHA and its members are also important stakeholders in the tourism industry in Queensland.

The QHA dates its formation to 1885 when a group of hotel owners formed together to lobby the Colonial Government of the Colony of Queensland on matters of excise, taxation and labour and immigration policies.

Today, the QHA is an influential lobby group which represents the interests of the hotel and hospitality industries, and which seeks to advance the interests of its members, and the wider hotel and liquor industries, through contributing to the development of progressive, responsible, and enduring policy and legislative outcomes
