Team Building Venues Hire Guide

Sydney offers an abundance of places ready to welcome you and your teammates and provide you with out-of-this-world team building experience. The city is very diverse when it comes to fun team building activities. In the end, it comes down to how much you know your team and making compromises. Here are some of our favourite team building activities you can try:

  • Escape game – An escape game is a sneaky way to make the whole team work together to achieve a common goal. Whichever scenario you choose - murder mystery, apocalyptic future or ancient Egypt, you will definitely have a lot of fun! There is no better way to see what someone is made of than under pressure.
  • Cooking class – Looking for something less intense but still fun? Cooking together would be a great activity for you and your team! Your team will have to cooperate through the process, and you will get to enjoy a nice meal in the end.
  • Drumming classes – Searching for something unique that your colleagues can look back on? Why not try African drumming lessons! Nothing gets everyone on the same page as making music together, not to mention it helps with releasing tension and work stress build-up.
  • Racing – These activities involve running, biking, swimming, and skating. The tours usually begin at a central venue and will take you all over the city. Does your team feel the spirit of sport and enjoy some light hearted competition? Then don’t hesitate to serve up some endorphins for your workmates!
  • Scavenger hunts – The thrill of exploration and competition combined with critical thinking and trivia make these a great option for any team building around Sydney. Divide the participants into teams and give them a list of specific items to be collected or completed. Then sit back and watch them build a true collaborative spirit. Hunts can be custom-made in a space of your choosing, or begin at a central venue and go around the city.
  • Online games – Are you working in a hybrid team? You can connect all your teammates with online games. This option offers many categories and themes, including quizzes, murder mysteries and sci-fi adventures. Take your pick and make your team laugh and bond!

Different teams have different needs, that is why choosing an appropriate venue is the key factor to success. If you're still lacking inspiration, take a look at some of the most popular venue types for team building in Sydney:

  • Unusual venues – An interesting venue could make even the most boring event unforgettable. Want to stick to classical team building games? Why not spice it up by doing it on a boat or in a cat café!
  • Karaoke bars – A karaoke bar has two things that will help your team become more comfortable together - booze and being forced to embarrass themselves. This creates a one of a kind bond that surpasses office solidarity.
  • Outdoor venues – It might be a good idea to take your colleagues away from stressful city life, even if for a short while. A private garden or a park enables you to create a relaxed atmosphere perfect for team building while enjoying the fresh air.

What to keep in mind before booking a team building venue?

Choose the right activities

Make sure all the participants approve of the activities. Remember it’s not only about you, everyone should have fun. Make sure that it is fully accessible. Team building is supposed to bring everyone together!

Book well in advance

Did you know that many of the best team building activity venues in Sydney run only a session or two per day? Make sure you book a venue well in advance if you want to hold a team building event at a specific time. 

Be aware of cancellation policy

You never know when something unexpectedly pops up in your schedule, and you will have no other option but to cancel the event. In such an emergency, it is good to know your venue’s cancellation policy. In most cases, if you cancel within a specific period of time, you will be able to get at least a partial refund. Always read the terms and conditions before booking!

Ask your team

Sometimes there are so many options that they make your head spin, and you just don’t know what to decide on. And that’s why you are not working alone! Don’t hesitate to ask your colleagues for some tips and opinions. They will help you decide on the best team building venue and activities or come up with new ideas. Remember, there’s strength in numbers!

Respect boundaries and needs

Not everyone will want to take part in the 4 km race or karaoke and there is no point pushing their limits. Making them uncomfortable just so they take part in a team building activity isn’t a solution. Such behaviour can lead to something actually quite opposite to team building. Try to provide them with a different activity instead. They don’t want to take part in a run ? Ask how they would feel cheerleading or commenting on the race. They are not keen on karaoke? How about playing ‘Name that tune’ instead?

Location – Make sure your chosen venue has access to good public transport. This small detail will make life easier and everyone will arrive in a good mood.

Technology – Create a list of technical equipment you will be needing for your team building activities (WiFi, projector, etc.) and ask the venue if they are able to provide what you need.
