An escape from all the hustle and bustle of the city, the historic Chateau Elan is a favourite for corporate retreats, weekend getaways and more.

Indoor Ideas

DIY Christmas Craft Workshops & Cooking Classes

Bring your team together for something interesting and fun. Join a DIY Christmas craft workshop or an interactive cooking class. Create DIY Christmas wreaths with the help of a local artisan, discover how to make Christmas wax candles with exotic fragrances, learn how to decorate cards and more. To add to the fun, sip a few glasses of wine and try painting a masterpiece with a ‘paint and sip’ class. Gather around your group for a cooking class that is fun and interactive like pizza or pasta making. You can even try the mixology classes, where you can challenge your teammates to mix and create unique cocktails. Here, everyone can learn some mixing, shaking and pouring techniques along with flavour and appetisers pairings.

A Holiday Scavenger Hunt

A holiday scavenger hunt that involves your workmates in different departments is something really exciting to look forward to.

To make it more adventurous, you can even take this activity outdoors. Places like The Rocks, Darling Harbour, Parramatta and Gold Coast are perfect locations for a scavenger hunt.

So go ahead, impress them with a Christmas party that they'll never forget. Impress your colleagues and create some wonderful memories with these fantastic Christmas party ideas. Get ready to spread some holiday cheer and make your office Christmas party one for the books!
