If you’re in need of inspiration for your next team building event, here are some of the fun team building ideas in Brisbane that Riverlife can organise for your company.

Outdoor team building activities

What better way to escape the hustle and bustle of work than by heading outside for some outdoor team building activities. The outdoors is a fantastic place to have fun with your team while having an adventure at the same time. The fresh air, sunshine and beauty of nature is a great way to clear the mind and re-energise the spirit.

Group Kayak

Kayaking is a fun and social activity your employees are sure to love. It is a great way to build teamwork, trust and friendships while enjoying the outdoors.

The Riverlife team will teach your team how to paddle and navigate the river before giving you your one-man kayaks, life jackets and paddles. Your team will travel side by side down the Brisbane River, encouraging, supporting and motivating each other as you go.

Enjoy the sights and sounds of Brisbane as you paddle downstream together, or, if you are feeling brave, challenge your team to a friendly competition or race.

Rock Climbing

A team-building rock climb is an exhilarating, high energy experience that will really challenge your employees to work together. Rock climbing requires strength, determination and endurance and will test the physical and mental strength of your employees.

Led by Riverlife’s highly skilled instructors, your team will split up into groups of climbers and belayers, who must support each other as they scale the climbing wall. Your team will have to work together and encourage one another to ensure each climber reaches the top safely.

Rock climbing is a great team-building activity- there is no better way to build trust than trusting someone else’s safety with them!


Another great outdoor activity for a fun day with your employees. Abseiling is an incredibly challenging and rewarding experience, perfect for fun team building activities in Brisbane. It requires courage, trust and teamwork to overcome this obstacle. You will need strong leaders who can motivate their teams while also knowing when it’s time to let go!

Abseiling is a great way to build confidence and trust and push your employees out of their comfort zones. Your team may be feeling nervous before their abseil but as they make their way over the edge they will gain an extraordinary view of Brisbane and an entirely new perspective on our beautiful city. This is a great way to highlight the importance of pushing yourself and encouraging those around you to do the same.

Water bike

Looking for the most unique Brisbane team-building experience? How about challenging your team to a friendly water bike race! Riverlife’s water bikes are a one-of-a-kind experience and the only water bikes available in Brisbane.

Water bikes are a fun, active way to get your team out of their comfort zones and make new memories. Your team will love the adrenaline rush of zooming over the water and battling for that first-place position.

Invest in your team

A day of outdoor team building activities is a great way to get your employees out of the office and enjoying Brisbane. You can choose to include as many or as few of these activities as you like. The Riverlife team will work with you to create a comprehensive itinerary with all the information you need to make your day run smoothly.

Indoor team building activities

Indoor team building activities are a great way to break up the day if your employees have already had plenty of outdoor action. Indoor team building activities could be anything from indoor games to thought-provoking challenges. The possibilities are endless but one thing’s for sure- these indoor team building activities will keep everyone engaged, on their toes and having fun!


Throwing trivia questions at your staff might seem like an odd way to build teamwork, but it is actually a fantastic exercise. Split your employees into groups and see which team comes up with the correct answers first! Trivia is a great way to get your employees thinking critically and working together to achieve success.

It is a great way to foster collaboration and communication and learn more about one another. As you battle through the tough questions you may even uncover some hidden talents and knowledge among your team.

Creative Challenges

These activities allow employees to get creative and express themselves in a fun and engaging way. Creative challenges require teamwork, collaboration and creativity so your staff will really feel like they are part of a team.

Creative challenges can be anything from drawing to charades, murals to acting, or maybe even a dance-off! Your employees will learn to express themselves creatively, build confidence and get to know one another in a more personal manner. Creative challenges are a great way to add some fun, laughter and light-heartedness to your day.

Guest Speaker

Guest speakers are an excellent way to give your employees some insight into new areas and provoke thought. A guest speaker is a great way to add another level of trust, transparency and understanding between team members as they learn from someone else’s experience.

Hiring a guest speaker can be anything from sharing their knowledge about their industry to an inspirational story. Riverlife’s private Cannon Room is the perfect place for hosting your guest speaker. With a professional sound system, comfortable seating, and a projector screen, the Cannon Room is equipped to host teams of all sizes.

Indoor team building activities are great for both large and small groups, and extremely versatile so you can be sure everyone is included on the day.
