Whether you want to do a remote or in person team building activity, Canberra has something to offer everyone!  With Canberra CBD offering some of the top venues in the country, where you can take in iconic Australian culture through a visit to the one of the many museums, art galleries, or the current or former houses of parliament. Or perhaps you want to venture out to some of the parklands surrounding Canberra’s centrepiece Lake Burley Griffin, or make your way out of the city and see some of the surrounding scenery of the Gold Creek Village, and Cockington Green Gardens. Whatever your event style is, we promise there is an ideal spot in Canberra, and the perfect team building activity or team building workshop that meets COVID safe restrictions for you.

So, you think you have what it takes to navigate Skynet? Working as a team, you will need to put all your skills to the test if you want to come out on top at the end of each weekly challenge and claim the ultimate victory!  This exciting and fun virtual team game is completely accessible online and is sure to connect teams and boost positive team culture, anywhere, anytime!


Do you ever feel like there is something lacking from your team, but aren’t quite sure what it is? Is your team performing at its highest capability or is there room for improvement? Understanding what makes a good team great, goes beyond employing the people with the best qualifications or most experience.  A great team has the right balance of skill, knowledge and behaviours within its people and through a Belbin workshop we can help you identify just that.


A strong workplace culture is something that really sets an organisation apart from the rest.  But how do you do that?  Well, you need a FUMISH culture!  We don’t mean a bad smell in the air; but rather the FUMISH workplace culture model developed by Corporate Challenge Events managing director, Dwain Richardson.  Based on 25+ years of experience in the industry, this workshop is purposefully designed and developed to give your team the tools they need to create a workplace culture that sets your team up for success, you’ll be left wondering why you didn’t do it sooner!

What Canberrans are Saying

Hear from the locals themselves on why team building in Canberra is not to be missed…


Hugh was at the venue nice an early and well prepared. Hugh was energetic throughout the day and kept the group engaged. The day ran smoothly and on time. Hugh was professional yet approachable for both the participants and myself as the organiser. He communicated with the Graduates during the wrap up really well too.


Hugh was extremely helpful and enthusiastic. Great day!  Met all expectations! Beats any workshop sitting behind a desk. Team had a great time


It was great to see our group of leaders come together and engage in a variety of activities. There was no point where the group were not enjoying themselves or getting value from the session.
