Matt Cameron-Smith

CEO, Voyages

Matthew Cameron-Smith commenced as CEO of Voyages in August 2020. Matthew has an extensive and highly successful background in national and international tourism, joining Voyages from The Travel Corporation, where he spent almost 10 years leading the Trafalgar Guided Holidays brand as well as his most recent position as Global CEO of AAT Kings.

Matthew’s years at Travel Corp have provided him with a deep knowledge and appreciation of Uluru and Indigenous culture. His prior knowledge has included roles with Trafalgar Tours and Tourism Australia – promoting the country in the UK and European markets – as well as global roles with Rydges Hotels & Resorts.

Matthew is Chair of Ultimate Winery Experiences of Australia, a director of the Anangu Communities Foundation, and a board member of the Torrens University of Australia Hospitality Advisory Board comprising both Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School and William Blue College of Hospitality Management. He is also a member of the THRIVE 2030 Implementation Advisory Group, a national strategy for Australia’s visitor economy recovery and return to sustainable growth, 2022-2030. Matthew was previously a director of the Council of Australian Tour Operators. He holds an Associate Diploma in Human Resource Development and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration and Management.

Matthew has an appreciation for Voyages’ values – in particular, creating opportunities for Indigenous Australians by delivering amazing cultural experiences. When he visits Mossman Gorge, Matthew enjoys nothing more than starting the visit with a smoking ceremony with one of our local Indigenous guides – it’s as rejuvenating as it is cleansing. When he visits Ayers Rock Resort, Uluru, the Tali Wiru outdoor dining experience is one of his favourites; a world class experience encapsulating the magic of Indigenous-inspired fine dining under the spectacular desert sky.
