Australia’s Auto Clubs have independently rated accommodation with a national STARS scheme since 1963 and 85% of Australian travellers have used the STARS when choosing a place to stay. Now as a result of rigorous research with consumers and advisory panels, along with consultation with proper ties, the STAR Rating Scheme has been overhauled to provide you with more relevant standards and evaluation cr iteria. Without an official accreditation scheme like STARS, travellers would be forced to rely on proper ties rating themselves or on unofficial ratings from other travellers. Now STARS allows you to plan your trip more confidently by evaluating the overall quality of the accommodation and giving it a rating you can trust.
