New Financial Year, new start? Try these engaging team building activities

The New Financial Year is upon us, and it’s the perfect time to revitalise and turn a brand-new, sparkling page of our careers.

Before nestling down into your career nests, take this as an opportunity to reflect and focus on what you want the New Financial Year to bring.

We’ve put together six of the best Team Building activities in Australia for you and your team to kick-start the new year re-energised, re-focused and replenished.


Stress Management and Resiliency Workshop

Assist your staff with change and reduce their stress with our stress and resilience workshop

Mental health in the work place is something that is thankfully becoming addressed more and more within businesses, and the Stress Management and Resiliency Workshop has been created to target stress and loss of productivity.

The beauty of this workshop is its tailored approach – your industry and staff demographic will be addressed, and you and your team will benefit from an in-depth presentation and evaluation of feedback. You’ll leave with a new approach to work management, and learn to think twice before letting the stress monster loose in the office!

Minute to Win it

Yes, this is the team building activity based on the TV show – Minute to Win It!

If you and your team are looking for excitement and laughter, then this is the perfect activity! Working in teams, you’ll each be faced with a number of nail-biting and bizarre activities, each team gaining more points and laughter as they go. Learning to move an Oreo from your forehead to your mouth might not necessarily come in handy with your work life, but the strategy and team work behind each activity certainly will!

Shake and Muddle

Difficult decision making doesn’t just occur in the workplace; standing at the bar on a late Friday afternoon trying to pick from an array of tropical cocktails can be a toughie! Shake and Muddle is an enjoyable activity where individuals will learn the fundamentals of cocktail making, discover the effort and skill that goes into it, and have the chance to try first-hand at mixing and making! The perfect activity for those who want a few hours time-out to relax, and socialise with colleagues in a fun environment.

Change Game

The Financial Year can often inspire change within the workplace. It’s rare people easily embrace change, however it’s something which can crop-up at any moment. The Change Game addresses just that – individuals are invigorated and inspired through a trial of interactive exercises, and taught how interpretations and beliefs can drive our behaviour. If your business is going through some form of change, this activity can be catered to your specific needs so you and your team can truly benefit.

Aboriginal Art, My Story

The Ransom

“We have your CEO, and you have three hours to save them!”

Not something you hear every day, but something which will certainly get your mind ticking, your heart racing, and the laughter flowing! Working together, The Ransom will encourage individuals to follow the clues and work head-to-head to hunt down the location of the missing CEO! An ideal activity to generate communication and team-work amongst your staff members.
