If your company is searching for a location that is more like a retreat style getaway with less hustle and bustle than the city, then the Hunter Valley should be at the top of your list. Only 2 hours away from Sydney, the scenic vineyards and lush green rolling hills offer plenty of Corporate Team Building options for your next conference offsite.
If you work with some budding wine connoisseurs, then our fun wine themed activities like the Grape to Glass and Wine Olympics are a perfect fit for the area. The Grape to Glass is a relaxed activity which gives participants an insight into wine making from an experienced wine maker before giving you the chance to make your own wine.
The Wine Olympics allows you to show your competitive side in some light-hearted, vineyard inspired activities such as cork tossing and grape stomping.
If you want to see a bit more of what the Hunter Valley has to offer, then our exploratory team bonding activities like the Hunter Valley Explorer and Hunter Valley Stampede allow you to get out and about to see the area in more depth. With some of the best venues in regional NSW ranging from small and intimate spots to large hotels with great facilities able to accommodate your whole company, the Hunter Valley has all the options covered for your next fun team building activity!
