Australians have a different way of celebrating Christmas compared to other parts of the world. While people from other countries show off their winter clothes, it is quite hot Down Under since December is summer in Australia. With temperatures hovering around 70 degrees Fahrenheit, it seems unthinkable how the country can get into the mood of the holidays.
Most of the immigrants were descendants of Irish and English families who naturally brought their culture with them. And this is still true today on how Australians celebrate the holidays.
However, since it is also the summer vacation in the country, people love to spend time outdoors or attend holiday parties. As such, you can expect corporate Christmas party venues to be reserved by companies and organisations wanting to show their appreciation for the hard work of their employees.
Here are the ideas for a venue to spice up your Christmas party and make sure your employees have the time of their lives:
Bowling Centre — Who does not like bowling? Even those who say that they don’t like eventually confess that they have not tried the activity.The rules are simple and there is nothing like throwing a bowl to strike down some pins. You can also divide them into teams and start a friendly competition with a nice prize for the winners.
Escape Rooms — Escape rooms are an excellent way to encourage team-building and teamwork. The team members can take advantage of the strengths of each one to get out of the room. There are multiple Escape Rooms in Sydney alone. You can again hand out prizes to teams with the least time spent in the maze. You can book one for the entire day.
Ropes Courses — This unique experience will really test the level of trust among your employees. It is an outdoor or indoor activity, which can be tailor-fit to your organisation’s needs. Apart from enabling your employees to break a sweat, at the hands of the expert counsellors, the ropes course is also a teaching moment on how each one can develop the inner leader within them. Depending on the location, there are low rope courses or high rope courses; the latter does exclude those who are afraid of heights.
Arcade Party — Nothing like a bit of nostalgia to keep the adrenaline going. With a free-flowing bar, it would be quite funny how employees deal with their eye-and-motor coordination to win some games while they’ve had a few drinks. Another alternative is a laser tag party, which fosters friendly competition among team members to see who get the most “kills.”
As the world continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, nations are finding ways to cope. Before you realise it, the month is already July and Christmas is just around the corner. It is never too early to book your corporate Christmas party venues to make sure that you do not luck out when the inquiries for reservations increase in the last quarter of 2020.
