The beautiful seaside town of Austinmer is located between Sydney and Wollongong. This region is characterised by a spectacular rocky coastline, lush green hills and a slower pace that makes it seem incredible that it’s less than an hour from Sydney.
There are also some large ocean rock pools that have provided a perfect location and backdrop for the great folks from Joyce, who very successfully completed one of our Kon Tiki boat building team building challenges.
This team challenge is a great format to underpin unity of purpose, the value of diversity within teams and also managing a real time compressed project.
We have been running this format for many years now, and it’s somewhat of an evergreen based on its impact and effectiveness.
A critical component of the final races, after boats have been built from our special naval architectural blueprints and some odd materials, is to race on a safe body of water.
Whilst the boats are strong and robust enough to take a lot more punishment, OHS comes first, and we can make use of hotel and report lagoons and pools or great outdoor locations like these great rock pools at Austinmer.
