About

The Booking Service  is an independently owned small Aussie home based business operated by Kim Michelmore and Malinda Melbourne. When you call it is Kim or Malinda who answer your call – no off shore call centre. When you email us you get a personalised response addressing your query.

The Booking Service started out as the Barossa B&B Booking Service In December 1997 but within 18 months had expanded to service other busy tourism destinations across South Australia to become the Bed & Breakfast Booking Service South Australia.

To celebrate its 10th Anniversary this privately owned service launched a great new site - BookBarossa.com.au - which features accommodation availability for most properties plus on line booking capabilities. The successful Barossa site has been replicated across South Australia and now Victoria.

The Booking Service prides itself on attention to detail and great service to both guests and property owners. Importantly, The Booking Service is unique – the words on this site have been written by Kim and Malinda. They took the photos too! They present the properties in an impartial manner.

There are now around 100 BnB operators across South Australia and Victoria who are part of this cooperative marketing service.

If you want to be part of this established reputable service just call Malinda or Kim on 0412 276 772.
