If you are looking for something a little bit out of the ordinary, or a team building exercise for your company employees then why not try a treasure hunt on Sydney Harbour. Sailing around in luxury Hunter yachts, this is a unique team building exercise in a different and exciting format.
This experience requires teams to work together to sail the yacht and also decipher clues that will lead them to different parts of the Harbour. After finding answers to set questions the teams receive a series of letters that when assembled correctly, will spell the location of the finishing line.
The first team to cross the finish line with all the correct answers is transferred ashore and given more cryptic clues on how to find the treasure map. Once the map is located, the team then follow the instructions and begin pacing up and down the beach till X marks the spot and then start digging for the treasure (not supplied). Treasure items can include a case of Bubbly, assortment of chocolates, cash, gold coins etc.
The day has a strong emphasis on fun, however many teams are very competitive. After the treasure hunt everyone returns to Darling Harbour whereby gourmet food, ice cold beer, award winning wines and an assortment of chilled soft drinks can be arranged.
