Our top corporate family day activities
Working in the office has evolved. We don’t always get to connect through work like we used to. A great way to build comradery and bonding between colleagues is corporate family days. These days are a great chance for associates and their families to enjoy a day out in a casual and unique environment. As one of Brisbane’s best corporate function venues, we’ve come up with a range of corporate family day ideas for your next event.

BBQ Food Stations
Keeping the family happy and fed can be a challenge, but when you roll together your office family’s families, feeding everyone can get perilous. Classic BBQ stations serving a variety of delicious food is a fantastic answer to this dilemma. Beef lovers can enjoy steaks and sausages, sea-foodies can help themselves to deliciously barbequed prawn skewers, and vegetarians can enjoy salads and barbequed vegetables.
All keeping the convenience of having the stellar Walkabout Team take care of crafting this crowd-pleasing smörgåsbord.
Enjoy simple, fast lawn games, from bowling to Hoys Quoits. These family-friendly games are easy to setup and a breeze learn, and enjoy. Splitting teams from employees from different departments helps bonds form or ups the competition. Our lawn is the perfect spot for a medley of games happening at the same time. Everyone can swap and switch in a snap to maximise the good times!
No doubt you want a way to get people working together and communicating. A scavenger hunt unites everyone towards a common goal and gets the conversation flowing. This family-fun requires some preparation from the family day organisers but you’ll find it will be well worth your time. Make sure the scavenger hunt is challenging enough to be entertaining without making it too hard as you don’t want the game to drag on too long. Reward the winning team with a prize, and treat all participants to a feast when your hunt has come to an end!
Put away the screens and get back to basics with some good old-fashioned orienteering. This is a great sport for families, or something outdoorsy and more challenging for the big’ns. It features teamwork, navigation skills and great exercise. For this one, you need to find a space that is unfamiliar without being too difficult to navigate so that everyone gets to put their orienteering skills to the test without the possibility of anyone getting seriously lost. Walkabout Creek is a well-established and clearly laid out venue – perfect for this activity!
Tug of War
An oldie but a goldie, tug of war is one of the best games to play at a fun day out. Make a tournament out of it with teams or make it a featured event with one big battle! This one is super simple, quick and easy to get the energy levels up and everyone working together!
