About Explorer

The Explorer is a great way to immerse your team into a regional area and experience first hand what makes that region famous.

For example, when in the Hunter Valley teams could experience wineries, breweries and cheese factories. In the Southern Highlands on the other hand, teams might experience wineries, local produce and award-winning gardens. We design a roving event to showcase the best of the region in a fun, engaging and competitive format that is completely tailored to your team.

Key Facts

The Explorer team building event will see your delegates divided into teams of approximately 10 – 12 people per team.

Each team is provided a minibus and driver to transport them around the region to the “experience” locations.

Each team will be issued with a map and clues to the experience locations around the local area.

This activity is held throughout the local area surrounding your hotel & is best suited to regional areas such as the Hunter Valley, Southern Highlands, South Coast & the Blue Mountains.

Teams aim to earn maximum points at each roadblock before moving onto the next site. We have a huge list of activity site options designed to suit your team, event location and your budget.

The first team to the finish location is not necessarily the winner, instead the winning team is determined by the number of points accumulated.

Example Roadblock Challenges

Initiative Race
Each team is faced with a series of physical and mental tasks that require the teams to work together under the pressure of a race situation e.g. Shape Shifter, Number Triangle & Pyramids.

Participants have the opportunity to channel Robin Hood in this mediaeval form of weaponry.

Laser Clay Shooting
Experience the thrill and excitement of shooting clay pigeons as they fly through the air!

Wine Masters
Teams taste a series of wines & must match the wine to the label blindfolded.

Cheese Demonstration & Quiz
An informative tasting session of local cheeses followed by a quiz.

And more!
