Irrespective of how large your group is, here are the team building activities in Melbourne that you should consider.
Trapt is undoubtedly the best escape room Melbourne CBD has to offer. This is one of the top team building activities in Melbourne that allows you to take on a challenging activity of your choice, each room taking 50 minutes to complete.
They can cater to a group of 2 to 200 people, with 32 people going through the rooms at any one time. That makes it possible to work with either a small, medium or a large group of people.
In the case your group is bigger than this, you can split them up into smaller groups and go in for the games at different times. Being one of the best team building activities in Melbourne means you should aim to book this one at least two weeks in advance.

You might know about the Amazing Race, but you surely haven’t seen it in this way before.
The race event is nicely suited to any group of people – be it large or small. It is also great for Christmas events, end of the year function and if you want to just give your team a pat on the back for a job well done.
No matter which it is, the Amazing race event will be best suited to about 5 – 150 people. This will ensure the division into groups that hold up to 10 people. Each group can then compete against the other for the best results.
Depending on how much time you’ve also got, the event can be arranged to last anywhere from 1 hour to 6 hours.
Don’t worry about the fitness levels of your team. This event has been tailored to suit those who are low on the fitness scale. That does not mean highly-fit individuals cannot take on the game too. In fact, this is the right activity best suited to the fitness levels of individuals that are to partake in the games.

Whenever you drive to work, there is a chance you see all the beautiful street arts and wonder how they come about. For fear of being arrested for defacing the public walls, you might not have considered trying it.
But then, what if we told you there was a Melbourne team building activity that allowed you to do this – and legally too?
The Street Art Workshop entails meeting with the street artist alongside your team. Then, you go ahead to learn all there is to know about stencilling and executing amazing street arts.
We know it won’t be fun if everything is about learning, so the workshop allows guests to practicalize what they have learnt too. We mean that – you can now bring out the inner Picasso in you and wow the rest of the corporate group.
The workshop is made even more interesting in how the facilitators provide the best artwork with a prize at the end of the day. Another way to beef up the corporate competition, don’t you think?

All the games offered at Team Building Australia are high picks, but we love this one the most. The game is highly tech-based and allows team members to work better with one another, boosting team problem-solving skills to help them navigate the game better.
In short, clients (players – who are the members of your team) are deployed to their target destinations. From there, they are assigned challenges with clues to guide them on the right path. Each teammate will have to work with the others if they are to decode the clues and uncover hidden messages in other hints provided.
The game is made to look real by incorporating many different aspects of a real spy setup. There is the hidden informant, cryptic messages, letter drops and word exchanges to look out for. To spice thing up, Austin Powers makes a guest appearance.
When the team has completed an issued challenge, they enter their answer into a unique website link. From there, they get a new task of passing the old problem or retry otherwise.
We don’t want to ruin all the fun for you yet.

There are three reasons why we love this Charity Bike Build event:
The first one is so obvious, seeing as how this is a team-building event. The second reason why we love it is that it is a very immersive event, requiring the help of everyone on the team to make it happen. Finally, we love the fact that it allows you to give back to society.
You get to see the smile on the face of the kids after you give them the bikes that you have spent your time building. This is surely more rewarding than just going to get them a ready-made gift.
The time, effort and energy that went into the build would be worth it in the end. That is not to mention the bonding with your teammates over the building too.
If there is one thing we can say about this corporate event, it’s that every single team that presents a bike is a winner. That is surely something you should be interested in.

This is the kind of unique experience that leaves your team to do everything from start to finish. Depending on the size of the team, groups of different sizes are tasked with cooking separate meals.
The event is even more fun in that the groups are made to go get their ingredients from the market themselves. They arrive at the destination and start to cook almost instantly. They will be given about 1.5 hours from the time they get back from shopping to preparing the meal of their choice.
Professional guidance will be provided by master chefs on set to ensure each team gets their menu ideas right. You will also be coached on the proper cooking techniques, timings and flavour combinations. However, none of these will be so intrusive as to take the originality out of the program for you.
At the end of the day, the different teams get to present their meals to a panel of judges. Of course, a winning team is chosen – and they get the Corporate Chef award.

Is yours a creative organisation? Do you feel your teammates are getting burned out already? Would you just like to have their creative juices flowing again? No matter what it is, this creative team building activity is sure to get your team pumped again. Spread over two days, the team building session allows each group to come up with their storylines and develop it into a short film in any way they want.
What you should like about this one is that it helps to show just how much your team knows about the organisation. Since the movie would be themed around the company’s values, strategies, products or services, this is the best way to showcase different interpretations of your company.
Each team will be tutored by a technical member of staff in addition to a performing actor. In those two days, the teams will also learn a lot about all that goes into making a script happen on the screen. Combining to form a memorable, hilarious and entirely creative boding experience, there is nothing not to like here.

What would you do if a member of your team got kidnapped? You surely have to get them back to ensure the smooth running of the team. Yet another hot pick from Uplift events, you get to work with the various clues and work through the series of challenges to find them.
The event is planned to take place in the office and around the city too. The teams will have to come together to coordinate their strategy and find the kidnappers. Designed for about 5 – 150 people who would be divided into 3 – 8 participants per team, the games can be tailored to last for between 1 – 4 hours.
If outdoor adventures are what your team is looking for, here is one ideal game to help them find just that.
