Are you hosting interstate guests and looking for somewhere different to entertain them in and around Brisbane? If your team travels for business, you have an opportunity to showcase everything Queensland has to offer. Day trips from Brisbane also give your associates the chance to get out of the office and experience something new. Luckily, you do not need to look far when it comes to the enormous range of day trips on offer, many of which are within an hour of central Brisbane.
Hughes Limousines in Brisbane utilises a range of vehicles suitable to transport any corporate group, from yourself and a premium client, to a whole team of employees. Every journey will be conducted in a professional and courteous manner, and all our chauffeurs have an intimate knowledge of the areas surrounding Brisbane. Let our team take you to and from your chosen location while you concentrate on networking, debriefing or just relaxing.
Whether you choose to head north to the Sunshine Coast, south to the Gold Coast or inland to get back to nature, there are plenty of locations to be enjoyed. Bush walks, wineries, team bonding adventure sports? The choice is yours! Here are 5 day trip ideas to consider when you’re next welcoming interstate or international guests on a business trip.
Less than 30 minutes’ drive from central Brisbane is Australia’s Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. Not only is this the ultimate location for your guests to get up close and personal with the country’s famous koalas, but it is also a fabulous spot for a corporate event.
With an onsite events team at the ready and a range of venue options available for both day and night functions, this really could be the perfect spot to discuss the plans for the coming year or celebrate team successes.
Optional extras include surprising your colleagues with a guided private tour or the chance to hold and be photographed with native animals. The events team at Lone Pine can even coordinate some fun interactive games to break the ice or get team bonding underway. For international visitors, in particular, this could be a truly unforgettable addition to their business trip.
Not every corporate meeting needs to see your interstate guests glued to a table in front of a whiteboard. Travelling for business can be anything you want it to be. How about a leisurely drive from Brisbane up to the Sunshine Coast?
This region boasts stunning beaches and world class waterfront dining. Why not show your colleagues the amazing Eumundi Markets? They’re sure to be impressed by the handmade gifts, artworks and local delicacies on offer. The fudge here is world famous and makes a great souvenir to pick up for the loved ones waiting at home!
Jump back into your Hughes Limousine and head up to Montville. Stop in for lunch at any one of the local restaurants, wander the main streets to uncover some antique treasures and leave the business-related discussions for the car ride. The 1.5 hour trip will give you ample time to discuss your important agenda in luxurious comfort.
If you are looking for a day out that allows you the chance to build relationships and entertain, how about a day on the golf green? The Gold Coast is a short 1 hour drive from Brisbane and offers a plethora of golf and country clubs perfect for a corporate golf day.
Depending on your available time and the number of guests in your party, there are many packages on offer at each club to suit your individual requirements. Most importantly travelling in style and comfort will ensure you and your guests arrive relaxed for a few hours on the green where you can walk and talk business, chat about the wonderful Gold Coast surroundings and get to know each other
Another fabulous business day out worth considering is Lamington National Park, 1.5 hours south of Brisbane. There, you can wow your colleagues with a treetop walk 15 metres off the ground. Covering 180 metres and using the support network of 9 bridges, this is certainly going to be a talking point when everyone returns to the office. The trail will take you through the rainforest canopy and give your interstate guests a taste of Queensland they may not have realised existed. Leave your chauffeur safely on the ground and challenge your guests to climb up to the 30-metre high observation deck. This location is sure to be memorable!
There’s a good chance that your guests may never had had the opportunity to hop aboard a day cruise and see what Queensland has to offer off the mainland. A short drive from Brisbane in your pre-organised chauffeur vehicle to Holt Street Wharf, transport your guests over to Tangalooma Island. Impress them with a whale watching tour, feed the dolphins or take them on a desert safari tour.
