BESydney's ‘Experience Sydney’ game is the perfect refresher tour of Sydney's new and iconic attractions
Brought to you by Business Events Sydney
So much has changed in Sydney over the past two years. The city is now reinvigorated with new neighbourhoods, attractions, hotels and restaurants. The fun ‘Experience Sydney’ game is an easy way to rediscover and be re-inspired by Sydney’s icons as well as some of the newer offerings available for incentives and business events.
Here is a list of must-dos for your next event:
- Experience Sydney Harbour from a different point of view atop the Sydney Harbour Bridge with BridgeClimb Sydney. The latest tour Burrawa is led by an Indigenous guide who tells stories of Sydney’s First Nations history.
- Taronga Zoo is a must-visit when in Sydney, but you can now stay overnight in sustainable luxury at the boutique retreat built around a native wildlife habitat complete with koalas, echidnas and other Australian animals.
- If it’s surfing you’re after, Lets Go Surfing on Sydney’s Bondi Beach makes a fantastic team bonding experience
- Staying with a water theme, Sydney by Sail can customise sailing regattas for your team on Sydney Harbour and get up close to Sydney’s icons – Luna Park, the Opera House or the Harbour Bridge.
- Crown Sydney is home to Sydney’s highest hotel room, in Sydney’s newest waterside precinct, Barangaroo. The hotel has 349 rooms, suites and villas. You’ll also find several fine dining restaurants, including Nobu and Oncore by Clare Smyth.
- The WINX Stand at Royal Randwick is an incredible new venue at Sydney’s inner-city racecourse with capacity for 3,000 people standing for canapes and cocktails.
- Watersedge at Campbell’s Stores has undergone a multi-million-dollar restoration and provides stunning views of both the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House and can be hired for up to 5,000 delegates.
- No trip to Sydney would be complete without a visit to Luna Park. Set on the water’s edge, the venue provides incredible views over the city, the Bridge and Opera House. It can cater to all sizes of events in big top circus tents or a crystal palace – for up to 8,000 guests.
If you’re looking for a change of pace, head out of the city for more of a ‘tree-change’. Highlights include:
- The Hunter Valley, Australia’s oldest wine region is just over three hours from Sydney. Take your team touring at the many cellar doors in the Hunter, try grape stomping or blend your own wines. Or for a wellness activity, enjoy day spas, hot air balloons or serene country accommodation.
- The Blue Mountains Area, featured on the World Heritage List, and the famous ‘Three Sisters’ rock formation, is not to be missed. The area is made up of historic towns, spas, and Scenic World’s Skyway cable car which carries you from one side of the valley to the other for expansive natural vistas.
- The Central Coast boasts a coastline of beautiful beaches and rich greenery offering a stunning natural backdrop for incentive events and experiences. Ride horses, herd cattle and go glamping in the Glenworth Valley, take a flying fox through the towering trees of the Curimbah State Forest with Treetops Adventure or sample the local produce at markets, farm gates and wineries across the region.
