Australia Inaugural Reconciliation Action Plan 

As a responsible travel and tourism company, creating unforgettable journeys is our purpose and we aim to enable and connect our customers with tourism experiences that are restorative and regenerative for the destinations where they travel and the communities with whom they interact.

In committing to our first Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) we are embarking on a journey to increase our cultural understanding, build long-term, respectful relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and develop initiatives that support reconciliation.

Reconciliation Action Plans led by Reconciliation Australia provide a clear framework, focused on accountability, actions, impact and outcomes for reconciliation, with specific actions and deliverables to progress the relationships, respect, opportunities and governance pillars. 

The thl Australia team is highly motivated and inspired to explore our scope and vision for reconciliation and take action to recognise, respect and value the rich, diverse cultures, knowledge, contribution and connection to the country of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Reflecting our value to be curious, our teams took part in learning activities and events during National Reconciliation Week and NAIDOC Week for the first time in FY22. 

We will continue to build our knowledge and understanding as we embark on our inaugural RAP. We have developed our online content to showcase Discover Aboriginal Experiences to our customers and rolled out a local cultural tour experience initiative for our crew to build knowledge and confidently share information with our customers.

“We are excited to work with our current and new partners to improve our cultural awareness and understanding, and to create opportunities for our crew and customers to meaningfully engage in the reconciliation journey, as part of our future-fit pathway. Over the next 12 months we will be implementing our RAP actions and will share our progress in our next Integrated Annual Report."
