Let’s be honest.

Hens and bucks days or weekends can go pear-shaped, and scientific research proves alcohol is the root cause of 99.998% of Hens / Bucks disasters.

Now we aren’t wowsers, but a well-planned scavenger hunt / pub crawl can reduce the chances of an arrest or hospital visit by 79.85%.

We can also arrange your entire day, from transport to activities, meals, accommodation and more, making things 89.724% less stressful on the best man or bridesmaid, and increasing the fun for your group by a whopping 98.97%.

When Go Scavenger Hunt creates a game or virtual guide, we usually finish with a feedback task to get a better understanding of our guests. This feedback allows us to continually improve our product and the statistics give our clients data to judge their return on investment. Here’s a small selection of the statistics from our School Holiday game in Geelong.

Go Scavenger Hunt is creating a range of public games including the following:

  • The Geelong Fitness Challenge which gives sporting clubs a Covid 19-friendly way to get together and train.
  • The Central Geelong Challenge is a school holiday program for families.
  • The Geelong Street Art activity is a deep dive into the Street Art Scene in Victoria’s second biggest city.
  • We are also creating a virtual tour guide for the Surf Coast Walk.

For more information about these activities and access codes to the games, just click the link.

With the relaxation of distancing rules, we delivered our first event in Torquay for ten people.

Five teams of two chased down GPS points and scan tasks around the beautiful beaches and river in Torquay and Jan Juc. It was a battle of the generations with teams of parents taking on the kids teams.

At the end of the 90 minutes, the kids just took out the top prize with 320 points.

Here’s the feedback from one of the guests.

“This is so awesome & I would highly recommend it to all local families & friends as a fantastic “social distancing friendly” activity to do! We did it over the weekend & we all, (including the teenagers), loved it! (There’s nothing like some healthy kids vs parents competitiveness!😉) Not only was it challenging & great fun, it was also an awesome way to get out for some exercise & fresh air! Definitely give it a go!!!”



We’ve kicked off 2020 adding a series of new activities to our menu. These include:

Trading Table

This fast-paced activity is all about the buy buy buy and sell sell sell of the trading world; focusing on strategy, sales, competition and most importantly, collaboration!

Level Up

This high energy challenge will help participants master delegation, time management, strategic planning and explore team working skills.

The Pitch

In this creative and challenging game, teams will be required to create, market and pitch a product good enough to show off their business acumen and entrepreneurial skills.

Spy School

Tasked with a number of challenges, teams will need to channel their inner spy to succeed and reign supreme.

In the back half of 2019 we picked up a handful of very short lead events because “the team building company we hired just cancelled”.

WHAT??? Just cancelled and left the client hanging a couple of days from their conference? That’s right.

We also picked up a couple of events because other team building companies didn’t have a wet weather contingency plan.

On the one hand, it’s great to be able to help people out of a hole, but on the other hand this terrible level of service gives the whole team building industry a bad name.

If team building companies are dropping the ball this badly, they should just get out of the industry altogether.



Just found out that Adventure For Life has been crowned:

Best Team Building Events Organisers 2019 – New South Wales in the LUX Global Hospitality Awards 2019

Prior to establishing Adventure for Life, I was working on a CSR Amazing Race team building activity where the client had a company plant 176 trees after the event. One of the guest mused “I wonder if that will offset all our helicopter joy flights?”

It was a snide comment but the guest certainly had a point.

Most corporate team building activities with a CSR component fall flat because they are extremely hard to get right. Corporate Choirs work hard to get a credible sound but their busking for charity doesn’t crack the $100 mark. Half that delicious food for a soup kitchen goes uneaten, and that fleet of bikes donated to a  charity doesn’t last 3 months because there’s no follow up mechanical work. I’m a bike collector for Bikes 4 Humanity and recently picked up a fleet of unridable bikes from a Charity Bike Build. They ended up going to Africa where mechanics got them back on the road for low cost transportation in Namibia.

Sorry folks but that’s the reality of one-off charity events. The logistical costs are high and the actual benefits are quite low.

Cold hard cash donated to existing and reputable charities is going to go much further than a one off bike building program with amateur (although enthusiastic and altruistic mechanics). A musical trivia night where the company donates $1000 to the winning team’s charity is way more effective than a choir. A simple Friday charity beer club where employee’s $5 beers get matched dollar for dollar by the company is a simple way to provide an ongoing cash flow to a charity of choice.

One off events can be fun, but in terms of providing long term benefits to people in need, they are not effective.
