Voyages converts hotel to staff accommodation

Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia will convert The Lost Camel Hotel to employee housing on 1 May. The increased need for housing has been led

by the success of the Indigenous Training Academy and the introduction of a suite of free indigenous guest activities attracting indigenous entertainers from across Australia.

“We have recently embarked on two programs that have greatly increased our need for employee housing at the resort. In October 2011 we introduced our Indigenous Training Academy which has been incredibly successful and will have over 100 new trainees by the end of 2012,” said Voyages’ managing director Koos Klein.

“We are also introducing a suite of free guest activities at the resort with a focus on indigenous engagement. These activities include performances by entertainment groups as well as lessons in Indigenous art, boomerang and spear throwing and talks on bush tucker and garden walks to introduce guests to native species.

“In order to provide these activities, which we know will greatly enhance our guest experience, we have hired a large number of specialist indigenous staff that require accommodation. The conversion of The Lost Camel Hotel made the most sense as we have a similar level offering in The Outback Pioneer Hotel,” said Koos.

Ayers Rock Resort will continue to offer guests a full variety of accommodation including the Outback Pioneer Hotel, premium Sails in the Desert Hotel, Desert Gardens Hotel, self-contained Emu Walk Apartments, and Ayers Rock Campground, offering powered campsites and air conditioned cabins. Ayers Rock Resort can accommodate more than 1,700 guests per night.
