Good Charlotte member Joel Madden -- Nicole Richie's husband -- has been BOOTED from a hotel in Sydney, Australia on Sunday after officials say they found some pot in his room ... TMZ has learned.

According to police in New South Wales, Australia ... cops executed a search warrant at 10:30 pm Sunday night and seized a "small amount of plant matter believed to be cannabis."

Cops wouldn't say if the weed belonged to Madden -- but DID say a 34-year-old man was present during the search. FYI -- Joel is 34.

However, TMZ spoke with the manager of the Darling Hotel who did name names ... saying, "Joel Madden was ejected from the hotel because a small amount of cannabis was found inside his hotel room."

He added, "In Australia there is a 0 tolerance for this no matter where you are."

Australia and New Zealand are very very strict about drugs and tons of other things. I go there a couple of time a year and it never ceases to amaze me just how strict they are but then again people should see the stuff people try to smuggle in from Asia now that will blow your mind.

That employee actually should be fired for breaching the confidentiality of a paying guest. Unless there is a dead hooker in the room, you keep your stupid down-under mouth shut!
