Famous for its coal, Newcastle has transformed into a vibrant, buzzing hub of history, art, cool cafes & golden sand beaches. Located only 2 hours from Sydney, it is truly a city with a diverse range of experiences & wide selection of conference venues for groups looking for a regional getaway. Like Sydney, Newcastle is bound by a busy working harbour and some of the most beautiful beaches NSW has to offer. However, with much less hustle & bustle Newcastle makes for the perfect option for a conference offsite.
With its bustling city centre & iconic landmarks such as Fort Scratchley, Newcastle Beach & the Bogey Hole – Newcastle CBD is the ideal location for The Amazing Race or City Scramble. These scavenger hunt style activities will see your group explore these locations and more – all whilst engaging with each other in meaningful team building. With the vast, green space of Foreshore Park or the soft sands of Newcastle Beach, our Beach Olympics & Beach Survivor activities are also some of our most popular.
Renowned for its breathtaking coastline it is no surprise that the bulk of our team building activities take place either on or next to the beach or harbour. Our Amazing Race & City Scramble activities will allow your delegates to explore the sights of Newcastle all whilst engaging in a team bonding experience. Usually, we will start these activities at your centrally located hotel such as Noahs on the Beach, Novotel Newcastle or Rydges Newcastle. Alternatively, we can meet in a central location close to free parking such as Camp Shortland or Foreshore Park. We can then finish back at the hotel or if you’re feeling celebratory, many groups opt to finish the activity at one of Newcastle’s many trendy bars such as Customs House.
If you’d prefer to keep your group together for the duration of the event many groups hosting a team building activity in Newcastle will choose our Beach Olympics or Survivor activities. These can either be hosted on the beach OR in one of the many pristine parks located around the city such as Foreshore Park, King Edward Park or Centennial Park.
If more resort style accommodation is the retreat you’re looking for, we would suggest heading out Lake Macquarie way to Caves Coastal Bar & Bungalows or Rafferty’s Resort. With an abundance of space both inside & out we can host a whole swag of different team building activities for your group.
