The visitors assembled a 145-run lead at the close of play on day two after Voges reached his tonne off 187 balls and went on to finish the innings unbeaten of 130.
Australia’s pace attack then ripped the West Indies top order apart, with Mitchell Johnson (1 for 11) grabbing his side’s first wicket after Michael Clarke took a superb diving catch to dismiss opener Shai Hope for just two.
West Indies were given no time to settle into their innings as World Cup hero Mitchell Starc produced a trademark inswinger to dismiss Kraigg Braithwaite for just 15 with the next ball.
Darren Bravo (3 n.o.) and Shane Dowrich (1 n.o) survived until the end of the day’s play and will start day three on 2 for 25.
