“The QHA is always here for our members  - from advice to training, to all the industry documentation you need.”

Welcome to QHA Online

Since 1885, the Queensland Hotels Association (then known as the Queensland Licensed Victuallers’ Association) has been the premier source of support and knowledge for our members.

The pressures on our industry and on your businesses have remained constant however, the challenges have become even more complex with every passing year. That is why the QHA keeps evolving too.

You will find on these pages advice on staffing and training issues, the latest on regulatory requirements, licensing and gaming information. However, your Association is also the first point of call for the ever-changing demands on your business.

From energy costs to environmental impact, live music to trading hours, tourism trends to noise constraints; the Queensland Hotels Association does not miss the opportunity to represent our member’s interests.

The most important feature of the QHA is the “A”. We are an Association in every sense working for the greater good of the hotel, tourism and hospitality industry, creating opportunities for members to get together and exchange the very best of ideas.

Above all, I encourage every member to be involved. Contact us, attend our events, train yourselves and your staff, provide feedback and suggest new ideas – we are here to help!



Designed with busy hoteliers in mind, the QHA HR Manual helps you organise every challenge of managing a team of staff.


Listen to the backstory behind the individual hotel and pub success stories within Queensland, the latest product releases and even get to know the decision-makers that impact our industry.




The QHA is the peak industry body for the hotel and hospitality industries, hotel accommodation providers, and the wider hotel and liquor industries in Queensland. The core objectives of the QHA are to promote our hotel and hospitality industries, lobby for outcomes which benefit all members, and assist individual hotel businesses and groups.
