Before you go selecting a team building venue for your planned activities, there are a few key points to keep in mind:
Choose the right activities
The area around Melbourne’s CBD is host to a wide variety of team building venues and events, but many of them such as races and ropes courses are based on a certain degree of physical ability. Always a good idea to check whether everyone involved will be able to participate and if not, maybe you should choose something less demanding!
Book well in advance
Many of the best team building activity venues in Melbourne run only a session or two per day, so for certain places booking weeks or even months out is a necessity.
Melbourne’s CBD and its surroundings are something of a mecca for team building activities and events, with a quickly growing variety of options from the traditional to the truly unique. Some of the most popular activities include ropes and obstacle courses, sailing adventures of all types, and, for corporate team building, corporate kidnap (where the venue kidnaps your team leader and you must work together to get them back).
Check the reviews
Never forget to check the reviews of a venue you are planning to book. Why? Because you can spare yourself unnecessary stress and worries. Benefit from the fact that somebody has taken advantage of a venue’s offer already. Check what they say. Is it worth the money? Perhaps it was pretty expensive but the service was worth the price? You’ll never know until you investigate!
Will you need overnight accommodations, tea and coffee breaks, catering or perhaps audiovisual equipment? Consider all of these before making your final booking. Think of bathrooms and disabled accessibility as well. Then check whether your team building venue provides them.
Be aware of cancellation policy
Life is unpredictable. Your plans may change overnight. It is good to know what to do when something suddenly comes up. By reading the cancellation policy, you will get to know how soon you should inform the venue manager and how much money you will be able to receive back depending on the time left before your booking.
Double-check the equipment
If you are planning to use equipment such as projectors, desktops or sound systems it is highly recommended that you check them out before the meeting begins. Any malfunction could jeopardize your meeting's success. We all know that audiovisual equipment likes to break at the least expected moments. Perhaps it would also be a good idea to invite a technically-minded colleague along to come and help out.
Make sure the internet connection is stable
Many team building activities depend on the internet. Perhaps you want to do a 'Name that tune' quiz and you need an internet connection to access the music or you need to show some YouTube videos. Imagine if it becomes impossible because the internet connection is playing hide and seek with you. That would be a disaster! As a last resort, you can ask your colleagues to use their hotspots but make sure everyone has enough GB for the entire event.
Did you know that there are even some team building online games that can be a part of your team building adventure? This is a great solution for hybrid and fully remote teams. Surprise your team with guided team building games. Why not connect online with an on the spot experience?
Team building activities for both corporate and private teams of people can be found all over the place, but there are a few styles of venues that stand out the most:

It will show you venues adequate for your request. This will save you some money since you won't have to pay for a large venue which you won't use to its full potential.

Of course you can! And what’s more, there are plenty of them!

We recommend always asking the venue manager to provide you with detailed information about their catering policies.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
