Where does Team Bonding Operate?
Team Bonding operates in 3 cities; our main base is Sydney and we have teams in Melbourne and Brisbane.
Team Bonding activities are staged in the Sydney metropolitan area, with Amazing Race courses in the East, West and North. To see our popular activities in Sydney click here.
What activities best suit a small group or a large group?
All of our activities suit groups from 12 – 30 people, and most are simple to execute for up to 70 people. If your group is smaller or larger the following activities are particularly recommended.
What are the cheapest activities?
At Team Bonding we pride ourselves on great value for money, that is why we clearly show all our prices on our website and there are never any hidden costs.
If you have a low budget we particularly recommend the following activities:
For any directly comparable activities we do match any competitors price, so if you get a better quote on something like Art, Cooking or an Amazing Race activity, please give us the opportunity to match it.
If you work for a not for profit, please let us know.
If you have a “petty cash” style of budget, we generally recommend bowling or perhaps create your own Paparazzi style activity in a park close to you.
What about venues?
For most activities we can come to your office or a venue of your choice provided it is in the Sydney metropolitan area and it does suit the activity.
For most of our indoor activities,we have put together this page of Venue Suggestions – we work with a lot of venues, so have included those that other teams have been happy with.
Should none of these suit you or you are not in these parts of the city we particularly recommend clubs as they generally have spacious areas, are professional and pleasant to work with and well priced. You could try the Venue Mob website for assistance too.
Cook Up a Storm is difficult for venues, so we have made preferred venue deals on this activity with the Vibe Hotel in Goulburn Street, City and Rushcutters Bay (which is a delightful venue).
If you are short of time, we offer a venue finding service for an additional $100 per booking, please ask.
What happens if we book an outdoor activity and the weather is bad?
Outdoor activities are certainly favourites with our clients, but weather is always a risk. In any given year surprisingly few events are weather affected, we think it is the popular afternoon time slot which is the driest part of the day. For all Amazing Race and Paparazzi events we use our Team Games activity as a stand by option. We organise a standby venue as well if the forecast looks questionable. That we we can leave our decision to the latest possible time and consult the weather radar, as forecasting is always a bit ambiguous.
If the forecast is distinctly unfavourable 2-3 days prior to your outdoor event, we will consult and decide to either go ahead (if your group are hardy), go indoors or postpone to an alternative date without penalty. If the event is postponed within 36 hours of the event we will re-schedule on a date agreeable to both parties, though we need to invoice the client the direct costs for the day which includes staff wages, extras such as Water Taxis and occasionally rental equipment (eg a rented van in the case of the Mini Olympics or Best of Outdoors).
If you have booked Outdoor Games, Best of Outdoors or Mini Olympics and it is critical that you go ahead on the specified date, you may also like to standby hire a large community / sporting hall facility on the day as we can switch to Indoor Games in a large space at relatively short notice (5 hours before start).
Can you customise events?
In most cases events can seem incredibly personalised with just a few tweaks within the basic structure (we rarely create whole new events). You will get the best of both words, proven courses and popular activities with your own themes and ideas front and centre. Please just call on 9949 2989 to discuss your ideas.
How do I book and pay?
You book via a confirmation email with your chosen event, date, numbers and timing included, plus your company details for invoicing purposes.
Upon receiving this confirmation of your event we will invoice a 30% holding deposit which is due immediately to hold your date. Around 10 days out from the event you will be invoiced the balance which is due on the day after the event. (If the event is less than a fortnight away, we generally just send one invoice).
We accept direct debit payments or credit cards, including American Express, though for the latter we pass on a 3.5% service fee to cover our costs.
How do you choose Team Bonding partners?
Team Bonding event manages team building activities for teams. Most of these we created from scratch and facilitate ourselves. For some we work with high calibre external partners.
Team Bonding’s vendor partners do not pay to list on our site, they are chosen for their professionalism and like minded approach to team building activities.
Can I become a Team Bonding partner?
At the moment we are not adding new events, but please email us via our contact page so we can keep you on file. We often recommend other suppliers to clients that we cannot assist.
