That time of the year has arrived: you’re planning this year’s work Christmas party. Had enough of lame parties? Want to finally get the whole team involved in something that they enjoy doing? That they would show up to, even if they did not have to? We got you! We’ve done all the hard work for you and asked your colleagues what activities they wouldn’t hate. Jokes, of course we didn’t, we just think these Sydney work Christmas party ideas are a ton of fun!
Getting any group, whether it is a party of 5 or 55, in a venue is always a challenge. We all know that venues fill up fast! But who says that you have to follow the traditional ways? Let’s shake things up and make it so much more entertaining for everyone involved! We’re talking craft beer pub crawls, tasting all the best boutique wines, working out your frustrations with a bit of axe-throwing, or discovering your inner-child while go-karting! Here at Urban Legends Tours, we have some great ideas for you and your team. So keep reading if you want to know more. Do you want to jump straight to the itineraries that we have put together?

GO BAR HOPPING ON AN INNER WEST BREWERY & GIN TOUR
Sydney is home to a great variety of amazing craft beers and distilleries. From wild yeast beers at Wildflower Brewing to expertly-blended cocktails at Archie Rose Distilling Co, Sydney has it all. Rallying your team has never been easier.
The inner west of Sydney is jam-packed with the finest craft breweries. While our itineraries are fully customizable, we usually start our day with a behind-the-scenes tour at one of our favourite craft breweries. This is followed by other epic breweries such as Sauce Brewing Co, Willie The Boatman, One drop brewing, or several others! Can’t wait to get on our bus? An Inner West Brewery & Gin tour might be perfect for you/
ACTION-PACKED CHRISTMAS PARTIES: AXE-THROWING AND GO-KARTING
We all know that the Christmas party is the perfect time for the team to let their hair down. Had a few work-related frustrations at the office? There is no better way to bury the hatchet than by throwing a few.
Next to releasing all that tension, activities such as axe-throwing are a great way to bring out your inner-child. Did you know that focusing purely on having a good time is actually the best way to unlock creativity and problem-solving skills? We’re willing to bet that a few axes are all you need to figure out how to deal with that difficult client.
Fully onboard to release your team’s inner-child, but trying to avoid sharp objects? When was the last time that you went go-karting? It will get the adrenaline pumping like no other activity, introduce some healthy competition and the team will have more laughs together than ever before. Adding a bit of speed to the equation can be the perfect thing to reminisce over for a long time to come. It’s literally the perfect antidote to boring office parties.
Whether you choose to release your need for speed or your inner ninja, why not top of a stellar work party such as this one with an inner west brewery tour? Here at Urban Legends Tours, we believe that a few beers are the best way to finish off these epic activities.

TAKE IT EASY WITH LAWN BOWLS
Thinking that the old bludger at workplace-safety is not keen on too much action? Lawn Bowls is the perfect activity for you and your team. You get the opportunity to have a little chat with your colleagues whilst enjoying a few more bevvies. More bevvies you said? Jup, our favourite bowling club is located in the inner west!
No visit to the inner west is complete without an inner west brewery tour. Let’s face it, a brewery tour followed by lawn bowls is a combination made in office-heaven! Keen to read the full itinerary? Click here!
TAKE THE TEAM ON A HUNTER VALLEY WINERY TOUR
Don’t want to stay in the city and excited to explore further? Why not head to the Hunter Valley for a winery tour! With its wide-open spaces and beautiful big boutique wineries, it is perfect for your big workgroup (or any size group for that matter). What better way to relax from a busy period at work than heading into nature, getting some fresh air and taste the best wines New South Wales has to offer?
Is not everyone a big fan of wine? No worries! The Hunter Valley is home to an abundance of amazing produce. Driving around the Hunter Valley there are a plethora of cheeses, chocolates, olives, liquors and craft beers to try. The only question left to ask the team is whether they prefer handmade cheeses or chocolates alongside their winetasting! No need to wait any longer, read the full itinerary here.
GO SOMEWHERE NEW: SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS OR SOUTH COAST WINE TOURS
We all know and love the Hunter Valley wines. Chances are that a large part of your team has already been there and is more than happy to head back. However, what if we told you that you can also visit a brand new area that few colleagues will have been before? That’s why we love our Southern Highlands and South Coast wine tours!
Each area has its own unique drawcard. The South Coast boasts epic views of the ocean and the opportunity to have a Picnic by the Sea. It also has a winery on the site of the very first European settlement on the South Coast of NSW, how cool is that! The Southern Highlands, on the other hand, is home to many beautiful gardens to visit with an abundance of deciduous trees. It is our favourite location for Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris!
The wines of New South Wales are beyond amazing and there is plenty to choose from. Have a closer look at our full itinerary for your group of 15 or more here: Southern Highlands wine tour Itinerary and South Coast wine tour itinerary. Whether you decide to head to the Hunter Valley, Southern Highlands, or South Coast, don’t forget to buy a few bottles to enjoy on Christmas Day. Nothing tastes as good as a local bottle of wine knowing that you have supported a rural Australian business.
Stay safe and keep in touch.
