These amusement venues will blow your guests away!

Kick off the new year with one of these fun venues, perfect for entertaining guests at your next corporate event.

1. Dreamworld

Hosting a corporate event at Dreamworld is a unique opportunity to tap into the fun and energetic atmosphere only a theme park can provide.
As Australia’s biggest theme park, Dreamworld is the business of fun! But their event spaces are also perfectly suited to cater for a variety of corporate events and create lasting memories for clients.
Dreamworld’s event coordinators can tailor event packages to suit any budget. Think animal encounters, cultural experiences, outdoor dining and exclusive access to rides – it’s all possible.
The venues can cater for up to 280 people for a seated function to approximately 500 for a cocktail function, as well as large-scale events for between 600 to 4000 people.

2. Luna Park Melbourne

Why settle for a regular function space when you can have all the fun of the fair, right in the heart of St Kilda’s entertainment precinct?
Melbourne’s Luna Park has a number of spaces on offer throughout the park, each with its own personality.
Guests can have private access to the park, including rides, attractions and food, surrounded by the vista of Port Phillip Bay. Or why not book an event while the park is open and soak up the carnival atmosphere with other guests, while enjoying exclusive use of the Luna Park function spaces?

3. Topgolf Gold Coast

Topgolf is the Gold Coast’s newest attraction and is the perfect place for both aspiring golf pros and beginners.
Players hit micro-chipped golf balls that track each shot’s accuracy and distance while awarding points for hitting targets on the outfield.
It’s competitive. It’s fun. And it’s a unique way to entertain corporate clients and colleagues in a very non-corporate setting.
The venue also offers private and semi-private event spaces fitted with high quality AV equipment.
