A Comprehensive List Of Moderately Difficult Adventure Activities To Do In Melbourne

READ MORE

I took a trip to the Southern capital of Australia recently, and me being the adventure freak that I am, I decided to try out some adventurous things to do in Melbourne on my off days. So I scheduled the weekend for some activities and trudged through my boring weekdays until Saturday finally came. I had decided on tandem skydiving, some paranormal investigations and kayaking in the bay as my weekend activities.

  • Kayaking in the Port Philip Bay: I’d mastered the art of kayaking a few years before, when I took up some kayaking lessons back home, so I thought kayaking through the bay of Port Philip would be a cinch. My experience was quite the contrary though as I struggled to find my footing on my kayak. Or rather, instead of footing, I should say my paddling. As the day progressed though, I managed to pick up the pace and I was able to view a large part of the Melbourne skyline, including but not limited to the Eureka towers and the Prima pearl residential spaces.
  • Paranormal investigations: During the night, I decided to indulge the horror-loving side of me as I embarked on a journey of paranormal investigation with Lantern Ghost Tours. Their package included a ghost tour in the evening followed by supper and then 3 hours to bed down the spirits with paranormal investigations. I was able to pursue these experiences at the Old Pentridge Gaol and I had a blast of a night calculating every move I made around the spooky corridors and halls of that place.
  • Tandem Skydiving: If you think bungee jumping induces a rush like no other, you are quite wrong. Tandem skydiving brought the blood rushing from my feet to my head in mere seconds, and the adrenaline in my body was being spewed out like I’d taken a few doses of epinephrine. The rush from bungee jumping lasts at maximum for about 10 seconds as you feel yourself plummet to the ground, but the rush of this experience lasted a solid 10 minutes and got me so scared that I think I may have soiled my pants a little.

My title might say moderately difficult adventure activities, but apart from the extreme emotions I encountered with skydiving, I’d say the other two are fairly moderate. There are many more adventurous things to do in Melbourne and I feel I have merely scratched the surface.

There are a lot of corporate group activities that you can make use of during team building events. You can find them on the internet or you can hire professional facilitators to conduct team building for your organization. Whether you are going to hire experts to facilitate the activity or you are going to facilitate it yourself, keep the following things in mind when choosing activities for the event.

Some team building activities require participants to move around and this may not be suitable for those who have physical difficulties, those who recently had a medical operation or has medical condition and pregnant women. There are also activities that might be exciting and not quite suitable for those who have hypertension or heart conditions. Provide minor tasks to those with medical or physical issues so they can still participate with the event. They can be your corporate group activities score keepers or line keepers. Ask your team members to sign a waiver and keep a medical team o stand by all throughout the event.

Keep your goals in mind

The activity should have a goal and its games and activities should be in accordance with the goals. For instance, if you are concerned of your team’s productivity, the activities should be designed to boost the team’s performance. You might want to revisit the goals of your team to remind everyone of your collective objective. Ask the team’s expectations before the activity so you can come up with games or activities to meet team expectations.

Check the venue

The venue plays an important role in making the event a successful one. Choose a venue that will accommodate the team and allow them to move freely while participating in the activities. Before finalizing the venue for your corporate group activities, visit the place to ensure that it is conducive for the event. You might want to include food and beverage when you book a reservation for the venue to have a hassle-free and convenient team activity.
