DO SOME GOOD
More and more teams want to contribute to something good during their team building days. Why not cook for charity by helping those in need in your local community. Food cooked on the day, whether it is organised on the day or through a putlock, could go to charities like OZHarvest, Foodbank, or others. Alternatively, you can also learn about sustainability projects all around the city by connecting with many non-profits offering team building activities or by talking to the Urban Legends team! Your team will be sure to feel great, knowing that together they made a real impact! Afterwards, reward their hard work with a behind-the-scenes brewery tour or a gin tasting so your team can talk about what they learned. Guaranteed positive vibes!

RIDE THE WAVES IN WOLLONGONG!
Nothing quite like a dip into the cold water. While we all live, reasonably, close to the ocean, not all of make it there on a weekly basis, or even once per month! There are so many epic reasons to take your team on an active team building activity (looks like we’ve listed a few here!). It offers your team a wonderful break from the (home)office and it is proven to be pretty epic for their own health, both physical and mental. Let’s be honest, is there anything more healing than the ocean? We think not! In a two to three hour lesson, your team will have a good understanding to what it takes to stand on a board. Maybe a lucky few might even ride an actual wave! Learning a new skill, like surfing, might even teach your team that they can overcome things that seems impossible only a few hours earlier! Afterwards, you can even take your team on a Wollongong-based craft brewery tour that will block their socks off. The perfect way to spend the day!
Surfing lessons for your team with an option to add on lunch or dinner and even an overnight stay, is all peanuts for our team building events team. Shoot us a message to chat through the options!
