Team building activities are plentiful in the Whitsundays and form a crucial part of any successful event, conference or convention. A golf buggy rally is not only the perfect way to get the team working together, but is also a memorable way to explore the island. There is also every imaginable beach, pool and water activity available as well as go karting, kegel bowling and target sports.

Also on offer you can expect a gastronomic delight for teams of all sizes with a variety of activities including behind the scenes kitchen tours, butchers' lunches, wine appreciation classes, cocktail mixing competitions, and for something really special, the Chefs Table at One&Only Hayman Island is a must.

On Daydream Island Resort & Spa groups can learn about their surroundings from a marine biologist and even have the chance to hold a baby shark and pat a friendly stingray! Dent Island offers Australia's only island championship golf course and with stunning 360 views of the Whitsunday islands a corporate golf event becomes something out of the ordinary. We can also organise jetski time trials, kayaking and outrigger racing, orienteering by mountain bikes, trail riding, a cryptic bush challenge and four-wheel-drive rallies.

And finally, for a stunning environment to get the team together, our cruise and sailing boat operators will transport the team to Whitehaven Beach, where the silica sands are perfect for a whole host of beach games including volleyball and cricket, or to their dedicated reef platform, where scuba diving and snorkelling will delight your conference delegates.
