Abstract

In her decision in Swan v Uecker1(Swan), Member Campana of the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) described Airbnb’s effect on the residential tenancy market as ‘unregulated and controversial’.2 Three years on from Swan, and the appeal to the Victorian Supreme Court,3 Australian Governments have now taken, or are in the process of taking, steps to regulate the short-term rental accommodation phenomenon. This article presents a snapshot of the status of that regulation in each Australian jurisdiction.
