The Gold Coast is Sabre's home town, and so Gold Coast team building options abound with us.  Since 1988 we have worked at virtually all GC destinations and venues, and can tailor make world-class events for you.  

Team building and development activities on the Gold Coast can be far more than just a straightforward Beach Olympics as the fabulous Gold Coast has far more to offer beyond the regional stereotypes. All too often people associate the GC with the old postcard images of a bygone era, when in reality there are some truly cutting edge venues and providers to cater for all aspects of a conference, incentive or event. Plenty of GC based businesses also tap into our team event services.  Team building on the Gold Coast can be as funky as the GC itself.

 

Outdoor and Indoor team based options abound.  Sabre Corporate Development has been creating corporate team events and development on the Gold Coast since 1988 (and its also where we have our head office) so we are truly the Gold Coast Team Building Experts.  

 

Having been here on the Gold Coast since 88 we have certainly seen some major changes in not just the skyline of the iconic high rise buildings, but also the massive upgrades in regional infrastructure such as the Light Rail (known as "the G" by locals, and of course the many attractions being added each year.

 

Sabre was recently recognised and awarded by Gold Coast Tourism at their 2017 AGM for decades of membership and service to the local business tourism industry.

 

Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach and Southport all have great CBD infrastructure that can be suitable for tailored Gold Coast Amazing Race or Quest for example or perhaps Kon Tiki boat building.

 

Sophisticated Fashion Fiasco fashion shows, Picture Perfect painting activities and other genre are also suitable for the classy side of the GC.

 

The lush green rainforests of the Gold Coast Hinterland also offers Gold Coast events of a different style with picturesque outdoor locations that are truly world-class. 

 

A great source of info for anyone who has a conference, incentive or retreat that's Gold Coast bound are the good folks at Gold Coast Buisness Events.

 

Formally known as the Gold Coast Tourism Bureau, these guys are plugged into the very latest trends and innovations that the region has to offer.

 

Quite often people also seek bands and entertainment to follow-on from our themed events, we use and recommend MAS Entertainment.

 

People occasionally also request Skirmish / Paintball, and whilst we no longer run games ourselves we work very closely with our long-time friends at Skirmish HQ Gold Coast who will be delighted to assist.  We also have access to Laser Skirmish guns (not as painfull as being hit by paintballs) via our partners at Gold Coast Laser Skirmish Events.

 

Some of the world-class venues we love to work at on the Gold Coast include...

 

The Sheraton Mirage

 

Located right on the beachfront of the famous Gold Coast Spit, this is a luxury property that we have literally been working with since 1988 when we first kicked off.  

 

The Marriott Surfers Paradise

 

With it's beautiful tropical lagoon, lush green surrounds and close proximity to Surfers Paradise, the Marriott is a verstalie location for team building.

 

Palazzo Versace

 

Another great property on the Spit, Versace has a sense of European elegance that lends itself to some of our high end fashion events and activities.

 

The Watermark Hotel

 

We have delivered many events over the years at this hotel that is right in the heart of Surfers Paradise, and offers great value for money in a cental location.

 

O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat & Spa

 

Far up into the spectacular Lamington National Park sits the historic O'reilly's Guest House (made famous when bernard O'reilly made his heroic rescue of the survivors of the Stinson wreck) as well as their state of the art conference and spa complex. 

 

Jupiters Hotel and Casino

 

Jupiters is a Gold Coast favorite and offers amazing indoor spaces, as well as close proximity to the stylish precincts of Broadbeach such as The Oracle. 

 

The Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre

 

Quite simply an enormous range of indoor spaces located right across the road from Broadbeach CBD and the beautiful Kurrawa Beach.

 

QT Gold Coast

 

This very stylish venue with funky bars, restaurants and contemporary meeting spaces is a great location that is also in close proxinity to action and excitement of Surfers Paradise. 

Where should we hold our Gold Coast Team Building?

 

The Gold Coast being Australia's holiday and business tourism playground it's often hard to pin down just which great locations to include.  There are just so many to choose from these days.

 

Sabre's head office is actually located right here on the Gold Coast and so we certainly know many great and memorable locations to plan your team activities Gold Coast adventures. 

 

The Gold Coast Broadwater and foreshore areas are great for water based challenges, as are the many beaches and sheltered lagoons that can be found around town.

 

Surfers Paradise CBD or Broadbeach CDB areas are also highly novel with plenty of active streetlife and colour to tap into, as well as vibrant shopping and cafe precincts.  This can be a great backdrop for "out and about" challenges such as a Gold Coast Amazing Race, Quest or Agency TV Ad making challenge.  

 

The lush green rainforests and national parks of the Gold Coast Hinterland such as those found at Springbrook, Lamington National Park, Numinbah and Mudgeeraba also serve as great backdrops and locations.

 

The fact that the Gold Coast is also the host city for the 2018 Commonwealth Games gives it an extra buzz and sense of excitment.  There is also a great deal of new infrastructure being built to help host the Games, which means even more venues and locations for this great destination.

 

Things to be careful of for Team Building Gold Coast?

 

Queensland summers can be very hot and sometimes very wet.  This makes planning for some wet weather options a great idea.  

 

Outoor Gold Coast options are certainly popular as it's just such a beautiful destination, but having back ups never hurts.  The further out from your team event delivery date that this is discussed with us, the better of course. 

 

There are plenty of great indoor options for team events and challenges that will work at virtually any of the great Gold Coast Hotel and conference venues, as well as many that will work both indoors and outdoors.

 

The Gold Coast City Council is a very "event friendly" Council when it comes to corporate team building and events on the Gold Coast, but even so it's always well worth getting all of the required permits and permissions when using the many great public parks and beaches.  

 

We are always delighted to liaise with the great folks at GCCC to get the right boxes ticked for you well in advance of your event to make sure the use of all areas is approved through the right channels.
