Outdoor Activities

A large percentage of working Australians, over 50% according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics,  spend the majority of their working hours seated, often with their eyes fixed on a screen. We say, let’s put the past behind us! Tomorrow is a new day! Put down the devices! Let’s plan our escape! An outdoor team building activity lets you do just that. And the boss pays!

Trust us, we’re the Masters of Fun and we’ve seen it time and time again; do not underestimate the power of getting your team outside for a few hours of fun together.  Invariably, we see an immediate shift in the energy and spirit of teams simply by getting outside in the great outdoors with the sun on their faces – so give it a go with your team. We dare you.

There’s something for everyone! Click on the links below to explore your options for vitamin D fuelled fun.

With over ten years experience in the team building arena Great Race has a huge and awesome selection of fun and engaging outdoor team activities that will boost morale and productivity. Whether you are looking to reward your team, find a way to facilitate greater connections or just wanting to get everyone out of the office for the day, we’re the Masters of Fun and we’ve got you covered.


All of our games have been designed to be suitable for all ages and physical abilities. We are proud to say that each and every game is designed in house to ensure the fun is maximised and that all personality types and fitness levels can be equally competitive. In fact, none of our challenges in any of our outdoor team building activities have anything to do with physical prowess. They’re much more fun than that!

And when it comes to our Amazing Races it’s not about crossing the finish line first. It’s all about how well you do over a variety of challenges that will test your teams creativity, problem-solving skills, innovation, cryptic brains and much more! The only required physical component on an Amazing Race is moderate walking, and sure, you can run if you’re super keen – but trust us, running alone won’t win it so bring your A-game 😉


An outdoor team building activity is a chance for the group to re-energise and get to know each other in a different context to the daily norm. Our team building games will rejuvenate and invigorate your group by simply ‘shaking it up’. At Great Race, we take fun seriously and are big advocates of taking people away from their screens, out of their seats and facilitating a truly positive shared activity because we know that these group experiences matter.

It’s no secret that simply getting outdoors for a bit of fun can increase morale, staff engagement and help strengthen relationships. Add to that the element of competition and you’ve got an afternoon or morning guaranteed to put a smile on everyone’s dial and a cheeky sparkle in their eyes.
