Research shows that team building when done right can be one of the most important investments any company can make, not only does it foster leadership skills and collaboration, but even just a little bit of fun can really bring people together! Yet for those of us tasked with organising these activities, it can be challenging to come up with new and exciting ideas that haven’t been done a hundred times before.
So to help you spark some new ideas, here are four unique team building experiences to try across the Southern Highlands and South Coast.
Bowral Beekeeping (Southern Highlands)
A fascinating and unique team building experience that will leave you buzzin’ for more, Bowral Beekeeping is run by Hamish Ta-mé, a passionate and experienced beekeeper in the Southern Highlands.
Available to groups of 8-80pax, this is a great opportunity to hear about the fascinating life of these pollinators, taste honey with morning tea and homemade scones and then suit up and get into the hives for some memorable photos! You can even pre-order a jar of honey to take home with you to enjoy later.
Valley Outdoors (Southern Highlands & South Coast)
Based in Gangurang, Kangaroo Valley, Valley Outdoors is an experienced team of outdoor professionals with tours across the Southern Highlands, the South Coast and further afield. With a range of accessible, inclusive adventures in the natural world, including canoeing, abseiling, hiking and camping, Valley Outdoors can cater for groups up to 60pax.

There’s simply no better way to slow down, connect and share time in nature together.
Stefano Marvello- Italian cooking experience (Southern Highlands)
Indulge in a gastronomic tour of Italy with this private Italian cooking experience. Discover just how easy it is to make fresh, home-baked bread, pasta, traditional dishes, and desserts with this immersive 4.5-hour hands-on cooking experience.
For small groups of up to 12pax, guests prepare their own Italian feast using the very best fresh and locally sourced ingredients. Then the experience finishes with a 45-minute sit-down lunch with head chef Stefano Marvello. As the saying goes, we cook and eat together – the Italian way!
