Top 7 Team Building Activities Melbourne

Are you ready to elevate your team’s cohesion and create stronger connections and teams?  For over 15 years Hidden Door Experiences have been delivering the best team building activities Melbourne has to offer with memorable team building activities that ignite creativity, foster collaboration, and leave lasting memories.

Melbourne boasts a diverse range of team building activities to suit every preference and personality. From adrenaline pumping challenges to thought provoking problem-solving tasks, there’s something for everyone.

Here’s our list of the top 7 team building activities Melbourne has to offer:

1. Graffiti Art

We’ve proudly delivered graffiti art workshops for companies for over 15 years alongside some renowned street art and mural artists.  In just under 2 hours, your team will go from art novices to brainstorming and producing their own piece of street art that can hang proudly in your office.

It all starts with the design.  Based on your preferred theme, the graffiti workshop can be based around company values, vision, products and services or simply just for a fun afternoon out.

Teams will create a design, with the help of our artist, before we teach some techniques and get paint onto canvas to bring it to life using colour, icons and images.

Make a day of it and add in a food and drinks package as you create amazing graffiti artworks. Each team artwork is touch-dry at the end of the workshop and ready for you to take back to the office.

2. The Amazing Race: City Quest

It’s as straightforward as it gets: within 90 minutes, your mission is to amass as many team points as possible. But don’t be fooled by the simplicity, as it’s anything but easy.

Your team will face a diverse array of challenges, each offering unique opportunities to earn points. Some involve physical prowess, while others rely on your wit and lateral thinking.

Here’s the catch – no challenge is mandatory, and scoring varies. Your team’s success hinges on devising the smartest race strategy.

Prepare to be tested in weird, wacky, and wonderful ways. This team activity promises a whirlwind of fun, competition, and collaboration, stretching your limits like never before.

3. Billy Kart Derby

This outdoor charity team building activity is packed full of fun and laughs and has been a successful conference activity for companies such as Red Bull Australia and KFC.

We kick off by introducing our charity partner and talk about the positive impact these fun little karts will have for the kids and families who receive them.

Teams then build and decorate their kart using spray paint, markers and stencils to bring them to life.

We have an honorary tradition that teams need to create a 30 second dance to the song of their choice as a way of introducing their billy kart to the race arena.

It’s then time to toll your sleeves up for a series of fun challenges where teams earn points that go towards the finale – a time trial obstacle course where the rubber hits the road.

4. Game Show

Get ready for a one-of-a-kind experience with Game Show – a delightfully cheesy, highly interactive adventure inspired by your favourite TV quiz shows. We’ve concocted rounds filled with quirky trivia, interactive games, and fun challenges that will have your team in stitches, regardless of age or background.

The best part? Game Show is customisable, allowing you to set the level of excitement, from mild to wild, as per your preferences.

Each game comes complete with video and audio elements to get everyone pumped up and offer clear instructions on how to earn valuable points for your team.

Game Show is the ultimate choice for your team dinner or lunch, offering an entirely unique experience far removed from the ordinary quiz nights or pub trivia you might have encountered in the past. This is dynamic, interactive entertainment that’s as lively as a box of frogs.

5. VR Bomb Defusal

Experience the ultimate test of communication with our immersive VR Bomb Defusal challenge.

Picture this: one player is trapped in a virtual room with a ticking time bomb that must be defused. The other players become the ‘experts,’ tasked with offering instructions from a bomb defusal manual. Here’s the twist – the experts can’t see the bomb, so fast and clear communication is key.

Our rounds are lightning-paced, intense, and often quite loud. Whether you’re defusing a bomb or deciphering vital information from the manual, every participant plays a crucial role.

Don’t miss your chance to master teamwork and communication in this exciting virtual reality team building experience. 

6. Minute To Win It

Get ready for 90 minutes of fun and laughter with Minute To Win It.  As the name suggests, teams have one minute to complete a challenge.

If you’re not familiar with the TV show of the same name, the objective is for teams to earn points by completing a challenge in under 60 seconds.  Each challenge uses common household items in an uncommon way. Keep your phone handy, as this experience is super Insta-friendly.

With no AV required, it’s an easy add-on to your conference, meeting, Christmas party or as a fun way to ignite your dinner or lunch.

It’s high energy fun and entertainment, and full of laughs.

7. The Big Picture

This unique art concept turns small canvasses into one large artwork to reinforce the concept of working collaboratively together towards one common outcome.

Prior to the day we ask you to choose a design that best suits your purpose or messaging, before getting our in-house artist to outline it onto the canvasses.

Working in small teams on the day, the group is asked to use a canvas to communicate a common theme.  This may be anything from visualising your company values to defining your team culture, to how you see success.

Teams then get creative in bringing their ideas to life.

After presenting back to everyone in the room, we then piece together The Big Picture as the final element of the day.
