I've looked into doing FDC but not starting yet. I'm on the Gold Coast.
Some advice is:
Firstly check what schemes you'd like to go with and then you can discuss what you will need to do through them.
Renting wise you need to get permission from the owner if you can do this. You will also need to get insurance to cover doing FDC from the place. The owner will want to see this, as they don't want to be liable for anything. You would need to get an appendix added to the lease regarding you running FDC from the home.

Check what other FDC and also LDC are charging and depending on your quals and what you'll offer ie meals, nappies etc will depend on what you charge. Can range from $6.50 to $12 an hour. Can do a day rate to ie 8hrs $75
You will need to get an ABN as a sole trader.
Also get a good accountant who knows about FDC so you can get good info about financial side of things. You can claim a lot through FDC. Also ask them if worth being GST registered or not. A lot of FDC find GST registered painful.
Join up with the FB group FDC Australia as there are heaps of FDC staff who can help you.

There are lots of rules governing FDC and it's best to speak to your local FDC organisation (ring your local council to find out how to contact them). My friend ran a FDC for a few years and she had to modify her house considerably. Lots of rules about locks on various doors/gates/etc and then lots of other rules about rooms for resting babies, cots you need, highchairs, toys, etc. You will probably need some sort of training too, especially first aid and probably other things too.
