A stat that I had trouble finding information on - How many small to medium size Australian businesses gets sold every year in Australia?
I did a little checking and came up with a June 2014 report prepared for the Australian Institute of Business Brokers (AABB) which could provide the info you are looking for. I cannot attach the file here but if you email me - neils@ (wardourcapital.com - added as the site blocks email addresses!) I will forward a copy of the report to you.

You already have regular clientels, why not try simply posting a sign outside that this business is for sale or have a chat to a few of your better, well connected clients?

Smart business people will see that there is an opportunity and they may not want to buy it themselves but they may have friends or associated that are looking for one. What better reference than coming from a regular who can vouch for your business.
