Our commitment to reconciliation is incorporated into the Holyoake branding and features “The Journey” by Melissa Spillman (Woods) a Noongar Aboriginal Artist who operates under Maarakool Art.

The story behind “The Journey” represents hard work and persistence of the journey through life. The campsites represent the many stories along the way. The background represents our culture and land. The lines and dots represent connections we make and stories we learn. The hands represent connection to country and a sense of belonging.

Holyoake has been on the journey of reconciliation for almost a decade and we are currently on our 3rd RAP (Stretch category). As part of our journey we proudly support an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice to Parliament.

Our vision at Holyoake is empowering people to change their lives, making better futures possible. Empowerment reflects choice, truth, and courage. Holyoake’s vision and values are strongly aligned to the Uluru Statement of the Heart and reconciliation. The Uluru statement makes clear the reason reform of the Constitution is needed:

“We seek constitutional reforms to empower our people and take a rightful place in our own country. When we have power over our destiny our children will flourish. They will walk in two worlds and their culture will be a gift to their country.”

Holyoake respects that the Referendum vote is a personal choice for individuals and we encourage Australians to be fully informed when casting their vote, as we move forward together making positive and lasting changes for our Nation.
