Indigenous Training & Employment

Voyages aims to grow the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workforce at Ayers Rock Resort and has several strategies in place to recruit, retain and develop Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees.

One of the key strategies to build the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workforce is to deliver nationally recognised and accredited industry-based training through the National Indigenous Training Academy, in partnership with two registered training organisation, William Angliss Institute and Charles Darwin University.


The Indigenous Traineeship Program commenced in 2011 and provides accredited training to meet the needs of the tourism and hospitality industry. Qualifications currently available include Certificate III in Hospitality, Retail and Horticulture.

Trainees are employed by Voyages while completing their traineeship and live in supported residential accommodation throughout the traineeship. A key component of the traineeship is a 24 hour/seven day a week residential support program to assist trainees successfully complete the traineeship and manage the challenges of living and working in a remote location. Trainees who successfully complete their qualifications are considered for ongoing employment with Voyages or Voyages partners in the wider tourism industry.

Trainee intakes occur six to eight times a year and trainees are recruited from across Australia and the NPY region in central Australia.

To change lives through cultural tourism

At the end of 2019, Voyages reached a milestone of 35% Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employment at Ayers Rock Resort. Over 315 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees were working across the Resort including 66 trainees and 250 employees.

The National Indigenous Training Academy, in partnership with Willian Angliss Institute and Charles Darwin University, celebrated over 450 trainees graduating with nationally recognised qualifications in December 2019. Around a quarter are currently still employed at the Resort and many more are continuing their careers in the hospitality and tourism industries across Australia.

Additionally, Voyages works with the local Aboriginal communities to provide employment, training and business opportunities.
