Meet in Australia
Springbrook National Park.
O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat offers guided nature walks of varying
difficulties throughout the depths of Lamington National Park. The
Discovery events, Birds of Prey exhibitions, Wildlife Encounter
shows and Segway tours are also in keeping with the provision of a
traditional Aussie experience in a spectacular setting. For the more
adventurous the homestead style retreat has also introduced the
newest and greenest way to commence a conference or corporate
retreat during a 36km bicycle ride up mountainous ranges, undulating
straights and easy riding declines.
Designated eco-tours can be organised with a number of
companies which allow delegates to experience a variety of Gold
Coast attractions, while gaining an understanding of the beauty and
significance of these delicate ecosystems. Check out the glow worm
caves at Natural Arch in Springbrook National Park and marvel at
the amazing landscapes offered at Purlingbrook and Queen Mary
Falls. For refueling, Mt Tamborine has local beer and cheeses - try
Witches Chase Cheese, or to dine in style, there’s the award winning
Songbirds Restaurant tucked away in the rainforest proper.
The Gold Coast has more than 40 championship or resort courses
within easy reach of the city centre. Golfing on the Gold Coast
has become a corporate tradition with a range of tight, undulating
fairways and testing greens at any one of the many courses including
Royal Pines, Sanctuary Cove, PalmMeadows, Robina Woods, Colonial
or The Glades. (If there’s not enough time in the day head to Emerald
Lakes Golf Club for golf under lights until 9.30pm every night).
Amp up adrenalin
The Gold Coast’s V8 SuperSchool fleet is equipped with safety
roll cage, racing seats, harnesses, Supercar-like suspension and slick
racing tyres, all designed to give delegates the opportunity to test
their skills as drivers.
The more adventurous groups can head for the clouds with Gold
Coast Skydive – the only tandem skydiving operation on the Gold
Coast. Skydivers take in the expansive aerial views of the city’s
famous coastline as they descend 4,000 metres safely back to land.
If airborne trickery is more delegates’ style, Tiger Moth Joy Rides
will have them in a spin time and time again.
The Ultimate Green Challenge at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary
is based on SAS Commando training techniques, where participants
can swing, climb and tumble through courses designed for all ages.
Active initiatives
Palazzo Versace Fitness and Wellbeing Centre provides delegates
with all the elements of a lifestyle choice oriented towards wellbeing,
health and fitness. Because each individual’s personal goals are unique,
a ‘Fitness Concierge Coordinator’ from Palazzo Versace’s specialised
team works one-on-one with delegates to assess health and wellness,
set goals and create a completely tailored fitness programme using
the hotel’s exclusive Technogym Wellness Key system. Palazzo
Versace’s fitness concierge can also provide information on the best
surf spots, kayaking adventures, nature walks and hikes.
At Outrigger Surfers Paradise, event planners can choose a one-
hour group workout with the hotel’s in-house international health
and wellness partner, Life’s a Gym, or to add to the social programme
the option of a $500 credit towards a cocktail or dinner function.
Life’s a Gym guides delegates through a set of exercises that are
simple to do anywhere, anytime - with great results. The combination
kick starts the metabolism, builds core strength and renews body
awareness. Easy to integrate and maintain at any level of fitness, it’s
the perfect way to motivate delegates.
The Tallebudgera Active Recreation Centre is a purpose built
outdoor recreation leisure facility, located on the doorstep of the
beautiful Palm Beach coastline. The centre offers a range of packages
and programmes including affordable and comfortable group
accommodation, instructor led activities and a full catering service.
The centre is ideal for educational groups, sport and recreation clubs,
community and church groups, family groups and corporate retreats.
