7 Virtual EOFY Party Ideas for Team Building in Sydney

With offices all over Sydney still working from home due to the Greater Sydney lockdown of 2021, coming up with fun EOFY party ideas might require some creative thinking, especially if you're hoping to get everyone involved. With the usual team building activities still somewhat restricted due to social distancing laws, it’s important to have a few virtual team bonding ideas up your sleeve. 

Thankfully, Sydney has a unique bouquet of teamwork activities and EOFY events to bring your staff closer together, even if you’re all still working from home! We have a range of experiences and workshops that are perfect for offices of all shapes and sizes, but we’ve selected seven EOFY party ideas in Sydney that are sure to please everyone you work with.


Friday drinks with a twist

Heading out to the nearest pub for your EOFY party ideas was a lazy idea before self-isolation, but now it’s also a health risk. But, to be fair, no one in the office is ever going to complain about a few after-work drinks, paid for by the boss. There are other ways, however, of turning your Friday night drinks into memorable team bonding activities. 

The mixology maestros at Kurbaz have an incredibly virtual cocktail workshop that will turn your office bevvies into one of the most festive team building activities in Sydney! Although this can be done virtually, the current lockdown laws allow up to twenty guests in a house. So if you’re in charge of a smaller team, organising a cocktail making workshops at your place isn’t just one of the best EOFY events in Sydney, it’s also a fantastic excuse to get the carpet dry-cleaned. Is your team more into cooking than cocktails? Discover why cooking classes are the best team building activities in Sydney!

 

EOFY party ideas that get messy

Working with clay isn’t normally top of the EOFY party ideas list. It is, however, a fantastic exercise in team building as it combines creativity, teamwork, and individual success. Getting everyone to a pottery studio can be time-consuming, expensive and pose a little bit of a health risk. 

Thankfully, Maker’s Loft in Cammeray has the perfect solution. With one of the best virtual workshops in Sydney, every member of your team will join in the live stream class and build their own unique segment of a clay totem pole, that’ll be assembled and fired in the studio! Working separately to create a collaborative piece is a real balancing act, and this virtual workshop is one of the best team bonding activities available for your EOFY party ideas.

Quick and easy team building activities in Sydney 

Making candles is one of the best things to do in Sydney if you’re chasing down team bonding activities that are quick and relatively easy. Provider Store in Surry Hills not only run one of the most interactive virtual candle making workshops available, but also the most eco-friendly. Using soy wax, you and the team will follow along on the class live stream as you learn how to melt, pour and fragrance your soy wax in order to make a unique and delicious smelling candle. This is one of the online workshops that doesn’t take longer than an hour and is a fantastic way to break up a long period of working separately and bring everyone together for your team building activities. 

 

Team building activities for self-improvement

Maybe your team building activities have been so successful in bringing your team together that making pottery or shaking up some cocktails is a regular occurrence. If so, great work. When done correctly, team bonding activities can have lasting results and promote good habits that really entrench themselves in the team ethos. 

So if you’re chasing EOFY events that can help your Sydney office work on themselves, this virtual class is for you. In one of the best self-care workshops Sydney has to offer, you and your staff will learn how to create and maintain a bullet journal that will aid their mental health and emotional organisation. This is one of the best team building activities in Sydney for a staff that is already close but could spend a bit of time working on themselves. 


Paint and sip from home

Paint and sip classes are exceptionally popular when it comes to team building ice breakers, and we would usually never steer you away from them. It is, however, important to look after the health of your staff, and getting them together for a big paint sesh for your team building events may be jumping the gun a little, right now. 

Thanks to Wesley Taylor Art Studios, you can enjoy your paint and sip night delivered right to your door! With all the paints and pre-recorded video in the box, all your staff will need is paper to paint on! One of the benefits of this workshop being on your EOFY events list is that, unlike our LiveBox classes, everything is included, so you don’t need to all engage with a workshop instructor. This frees up your zoom for conversation over a few BYO vinos, so you can make the most of your team bonding activities.

 

EOFY events for the moment

Unlike five months ago, no one is going to look twice if you head into work wearing a colourful face mask. Thanks to Sydney Creative, you and your team can build custom face masks together over our LiveBox class! 

What would otherwise be considered unusual team building activities are now very kosher, and building a face mask for when work does return is a fantastic way to make the most of a bad situation. It’s not only practical either. Building a face mask is actually a fun and engaging craft experience, and a clever way to bring in the new financial year for your team bonding activities.
