EOFY Celebration Success

Surprise your team by embracing new ways to see off the financial year

Five ways to make your End of Financial Year celebration one to remember

Targets have (hopefully) been hit and budgets are being re-set for another year. After a long year of hard work, the End of Financial Year deserves to be
celebrated in style. Many organisations put on an awards dinner or special lunch to coincide with the end of another financial year, but what if there’s another way
to celebrate the occasion? These out-of-the-box event and activity ideas will not only bring everyone together but also inject a bit of fun into proceedings.

Host a private concert

Give your event the X Factor by booking a well-known musical act to perform a special private gig for your team. Properties with outdoor areas such as RACV Cape Schanck Resort are the perfect place to host an open-air concert under the stars. Hire in a stage and sound system and set up banquet tables to enjoy a private concert, meal and drinks on the lawn, with special menus, beer and wine, and even blankets provided if it’s a little chilly.

Hit the green

Struggling to get time-poor senior executives to attend work events? Lure them out of the boardroom with a Golf Day. The home of championship golf, RACV Royal Pines Resort is the ultimate destination for a corporate golf day or weekend. While the championship golf course hosts the Australian PGA Championship, you don’t need to be a golf pro to enjoy a putt on the green. Social golfers and old hands alike will get a kick out of coming together to compete for prizes in a fun golf comp followed by canapes or a relaxed barbecue. In Victoria, RACV Goldfields Resort’s 18-hole golf course is perfect for a casual swing with the Chip and Sip package offering groups a chance to play golf and enjoy drinks. Alternatively, a Golf Cart Scavenger Hunt around the course offers an entertaining option for non-golfers. On the coast, RACV Torquay Resort is equipped to run a variety of interactive golf activities for groups of all abilities. Competing for prizes in chipping, driving and putting challenges often brings out friendly rivalries and funny banter – a great way for executives to connect with their teams and show their softer side.

Plan a movie night

RACV City Club’s theatrette is a top spot to host a private movie screening for your team in the heart of Melbourne. The CBD location makes it a convenient choice for most staff to enjoy an EOFY celebration without having to travel too far. Packages including movie hire, canapes, popcorn and beverages make event organisation a breeze. Why not go the extra mile and theme the event to tie-in with your movie choice? Whether you go for a super hero movie theme or embrace a retro vibe by screening a cult classic from the 80s or 90s, be sure to include tempting prizes for the best dressed attendee, funniest impersonation or winner of a movie trivia session.

Get to know gin

There’s no doubt about it, gin is the spirit of the moment in Australia and there’s no better place to host a gin tasting session than in the Yarra Valley, home of award-winning distiller, Four Pillars. Get the team together for a night away at RACV Healesville Country Club including a private gin tasting experience and you’ll have an End of Financial Year celebration staff will be talking about for years to come.

Take to the water

A change of scenery is a top way to get people excited about your EOFY event. Up north, the team at RACV Noosa Resort can organise kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, jet-skiing and surf lessons for groups keen to take part in aquatic adventures in the sunshine. A great rewards trip to coincide with the EOFY or a team building retreat to help reset intentions for the new financial year ahead, choosing the Sunshine Coast as your EOFY celebration destination is a clever way to get the whole team onboard.
