Voyages offers experience-based holidays in spectacular wilderness locations including Ayers Rock Resort in the iconic Red Centre, Home Valley Station in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, and tourism facilities at Mossman Gorge in Tropical Queensland.
Voyages is focused on providing guests with enriching, memorable experiences, which they would not be able to enjoy anywhere else in Australia.
We're committed to building and sustaining an Indigenous workforce through training, employment and economic development. Our aim is to train and develop more Indigenous staff, enabling them to secure employment in the hospitality industry across Australia. In turn, our guests will enjoy a more "authentic" Indigenous Australian experience.

We believe that travel should be an inspiring experience for our guests, as symbolised through our vibrant logo:
Inspired by Margaret Smith's painting, Two Sisters, the logo represents the red earth and the sun, with the spiralling stars of the night sky mimicking the shape of sails of the resort, culminating in the central meeting place.
Voyages is committed to nurturing and sharing Australia's sensitive eco and cultural destinations and also to protecting them so that our guests might enjoy them for years to come. Because we feel privileged to operate in remote locations, it is critically important to us that we address local needs and concerns. We have therefore made a commitment to work with local communities via:
- Sustainable environmental tourism practice
- Respecting and supporting local cultures
- Offering employment and training
The core purpose of Voyages is to create opportunities for Indigenous Australians through Cultural Tourism. A commitment to reconciliation is the driving force behind all Voyages operations and we have captured this commitment by joining Reconciliation Australia’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) program.
Voyages RAP shows the programs and initiatives we have in place to support reconciliation and captures our targets and commitments for 2015-2018.
