Why have your Team Day in Brisbane?
We love Australian innovations, and is there anything more iconic than the classic lamington?
This quintessentially Australian chocolate and coconut-covered sponge cake was created in Brisbane in 1900 by Armand Galland, the French chef of Lord and Lady Lamington. And it wasn’t a finely tuned recipe, but a hurried solution to feed unexpected guests, made from a slab of day-old sponge cake.
We love the creativity behind this success story, which is a continuing theme among the innovative and vibrant businesses and events of Brisbane today - making it an inspiring destination for corporate events and team-building days alike.
You’ll find dozens of waterfront bars and restaurants, ideal for a private dinner or bar package to toast to your team’s success. If it’s an immersive foodie experience you’re after, there’s everything from team-building cooking classes and chocolate making lessons to wine tasting or sampling local produce at the region’s weekend markets.
The picture-perfect weather almost all year round makes it easy to explore everything the city has to offer by foot, bicycle, boat… or kayak!
And if you’re looking for adventure, it’s not far to the action-packed outdoor activities of Mount Coot-tha, Mt Gravatt, Stradbroke Island and the Glass House Mountains.
Top Tips and Ideas
Sure, you could go to any one of Brisbane’s historic pubs or contemporary cocktail bars to celebrate with your team. But it’s hard to beat an entire day of visiting the region’s best microbreweries to sample all the best craft beers Brisbane has to offer.
