December is always an exciting time for businesses because it means the holidays are approaching. Depending on the field you work in, you could either be slowing down a bit with your workload or ramping it up to make up for the upcoming time off.
Either way, end of year work parties can be a treat as they can offer a relaxing and fun outlet as well as a chance to wind down with your work colleagues – who you might not get to be social with a lot of the time. Our Melbourne bus charter company has decided to list six options for your end of year work party that go beyond your standard bar gathering.
1. Organise a games night
Whilst this title could mean several different types of games, we’re talking about things like bowling, mini-golf, laser tag – physical activities that still hold an element of fun and mild competitiveness. There are several locations around Melbourne where this sort of fun can be had.
If you’re looking for a unique mini-golf experience, then Holey Moley is the place to go – with themed rooms and exciting courses, as well as a bar. Strike Bowling is a venue where you can go to enjoy bowling, laser tag and escape rooms whilst hanging out at a bar in between. It’s sure to give your office an experience they won’t forget.
2. Let loose with some karaoke
Karaoke isn’t for everyone – until it is. Strike Bowling at QV features a karaoke bar – but if you’re looking for something a little more unique, then check out the Heroes Bar on Bourke street – which combines Asian BBQ, rooftop bars and karaoke rooms across a four-storey building. They’re able to accommodate for more than 18 people and have private rooms with three tiers of drink packages ranging from silver singer to triple diamond baller.
3. Visit a Winery
Winery visits are very popular for large groups – so why not drop some subtle hints to your event organiser this year. There’re a variety of different wineries that you can go to as a group, and with a Melbourne bus charter company helping you out, you won’t have to worry about anyone driving and missing out on the fun.
Whether it’s the Yarra Valley or down the Mornington Peninsula, there’s no shortages of wineries that offer fabulous packages for large groups and businesses. Most wineries are also well equipped with their own restaurants and plenty of space for you to relax in.
4. Learn how to surf
December doesn’t just bring the end of the year and the holidays – but also the hot summer weather. What better way is there to spend summer than at the beach? Surf lessons are a fantastic way to get into the summer spirit and engage in something new with your colleagues.
It also encourages team-building with the added bonus of a fun time. There are several surf schools you can opt for down the different coasts of Victoria and our trusty Melbourne bus hire company will be happy to take you there and back to ensure everyone has a comfortable and carefree time during.
For a more adrenaline-fueled experience, why not try go-karting? The level of go karting that you can do varies from beginner, electric ones to professional level, petrol-karts. The latter of which you’re even required to wear helmets during.
There are several indoor and outdoor tracks around Melbourne and Victoria that can help you make your end of year party the best it can be. Make sure to prepare yourself though, some of those go-karts can really pack a punch when you put the pedal to the floor.
6. Lawn bowls
For a more relaxed option, lawn bowling is absolutely your best bet. The summer sun, relaxed setting and cool beverages all complement the simple nature of the game. A very classic and popular location for your end of year party – no matter what business you’re in.
