It is probably best to keep real bullets away from your team of maniacs – luckily Laser Clay shooting acts just like a tv remote pointing at the target, however you still get the satisfying shotgun “bang” whenever the trigger is pulled!

Canyoning and abseiling is the perfect summer activity for your team of thrill seekers. The day starts with abseiling off a 3 metre high block where you learn the technique and quickly advance up to higher cliffs through the morning. After lunch you walk to the start of the canyon where you wade through a creek that descends into a rock pool. Jump in and have a scenic swim filled with natural waterslides. Finally combine your canyoning and abseiling skills by abseiling out of the canyon off a waterfall! This is a long day of team building, and it requires at least average physical fitness and swimming ability. This day in the Blue mountains will stick with you for years to come and deepen the bonds between your team.
This is an activity for the hardcore thrill seekers! Crawl, squish and bump your way through mud in the underground caves of the Yarra Junction.

Perhaps the most ingenious paring we have ever seen! A morning of rock climbing followed by an afternoon of wine tasting and blending. Scare your team senseless on the high ropes, and then calm them down with some fine South Australian red. The morning session runs from 9-12 where you will be taken to belay school for a number of challenges including ‘Hanging Vines’, ‘Burma Bridge’, ‘Flying Fox’ and ‘Two Tier Lane’. Never fear, there are plenty more high ropes to keep you occupied in the morning. In the afternoon session from 2-4:30 you will employ your expert wine knowledge to blend, taste and ultimately create your very own wine. Climb and Wine is a great mixture of high intensity and relaxed fun for the team who like to go hard then relax with a good glass of red at the end of the day.
