We feel so lucky to have been part of establishing the vibrant Margaret River Community since our founder, Michael Wright dipped his shovel into Voyager Estate soil 30 years ago.
Since then, we have contributed to the local community by leading the way in sustainable farming practices; revegetating the Boodjidup catchment; attracting tourism to the region; participating in Owl Friendly Margaret River; and many other initiatives. We have donated prizes for countless fundraising raffles and auctions. But we always want and need, to do more.
We’ve recently established something we’re calling Voyager Community, and it’s about providing funding to support two areas that mean a lot to us. Our environment - our place, and community wellbeing - our people. We will do this by focusing on grassroots projects that have a direct impact on residents in the Margaret River Region (Busselton to Augusta).
Voyager Community is our way of ensuring our support makes a meaningful difference to this magnificent region we call home.

In 2023, Voyager Community has proudly supported the following local initiatives, among others:
Voyager Community covered the cost of marquee hire for the River Angels inaugural Garden Party Fundraiser, held at Glenbrae Gardens in Rosa Glen. Proceeds on the day directly assisted local families in need.
We supported the Margaret River Readers & Writers Festival by helping to fund two extra community health and wellness workshops. This included a free session discussing the book 'The Kindness Revolution' with author Hugh Mackay, and a session with journalist and prostate cancer survivor, Tim Baker, focussing on men’s mental health and well-being.
We assisted the volunteer-run Cowaramup Bay Boardriders with purchasing brand-new rash vests for the many young surfers in their club. Each year, hundreds of volunteer hours are put in to organise competitions and activities, fund prizes, feed the kids, and develop new mental health activities.
Karridale Primary School is currently working on two ongoing projects supported by Voyager Community – a native garden and a series of large mural artworks by local artist Lisa Calosi, with guidance from Indigenous Custodians of the land.
