The Gold Coast is a sensational destination for team building
Australia’s Gold Coast is widely regarded as one of the nation’s best locations for business tourism and events such as conferences, off-sites and incentive reward trips.
With everything from long expanses of beach to world-class rainforests and theme parks the Gold Coast has it all with regards to truly diverse locations and venues for team building events and programmes.
Beaches can serve as a beautiful backdrop for competitive team games, and the vibrant CBD areas of Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach can be featured in Amazing Races, Quests and some of our Movie and TV Ad making concepts.
Over the years we have also taken groups for team based challenges into the Gold Coast Hinterland using locations in and around Mudgeeraba and Springbrook National Park.
There are also many great parks and gardens to draw upon in and around the suburbs. Gold Coast City Council are a highly event friendly city to obtain the correct permissions from for usage of public areas.
Hotels and Resorts also abound with Sheraton, Accor, Marriott, Crowne, Star, Versace and numerous other quality venues represented. These venues feature traffic meetings spaces for indoor team building concepts such as Picture Perfect, Battlespace and Silk Road Traders.
Sabre actually ran its very first event on the Gold Coast in 1988 at the Sheraton Mirage Gold Coast, and we have had our head office here ever since in the hinterland town of Mudgeeraba.
The earliest forms of team building and development that we designed were based out of the Gold Coast War Museum with playful and exciting military themes. We used military vehicles, props, equipment and uniforms to transform conference groups into their very own Strike Force.
These events blended experiential and adventure learning techniques with a ‘business is war’ thematic and some fun and theatricality. Their popularity took off after a great deal of media coverage, and much repeat and referral business helped Sabre to grow.
Eventually Gold Coast based team building became national as larger corporate clients took us further afield to deliver for them, and then international initially within the Asia-Pacific region and then to The UK, USA and Europe.
To paraphrase Peter Allen though, no matter how far or wide we roam we still call the Gold Coast home. If you are seeking creative and highly effective team building solutions for the sunny Gold Coast feel free to contact us at any time.
