Urban Quest is an emotionally charged and interactive Race that is full of clever riddles, hilarious challenges and lots of fun and action. The two-hour event will fly by as competing teams of 4-6 navigate iconic Melbourne’s CBD streets trying to outsmart each other. Guided by our custom software on the palm of their hand!
Urban Quest offers one of a kind, fun team building activities Melbourne businesses, government bureaus, charities and any other type of organisation can turn to when they need to rekindle the fire in their workforce and transform staff members into bonded teammates.
The idea was inspired from the Amazing Race TV show, in which teams competed against each other in a race around the world, seeking out clues that would lead them to their next location. Urban Quest identified the possibilities this concept had in terms of engaging teams in a fun and physically active way that would also deliver lessons in terms of how to overcome and deal with real-world situations staff face during the course of their day.
Pushing teams to overcome roadblocks and obstacles as they complete the game, encourages them to act as a collective who make decisions and complete tasks together that will, where successful, give them a competitive edge against their rivals. It also makes it a fun and interesting way to see your staff in a new light where they may show their potential as leaders, strategists or reveals skills and expertise that were previously unknown.
While the Urban Quest team has over 15 years of combined experience in the industry our concept is completely unique in Australia.
All of our events are technology-based, with participants using their smartphones and nothing else to navigate the game with their teammates on the streets of Melbourne’s central business district, save for a few in-character “agents” who appear from time to time along the route. The game typically takes between 2 and 3 hours to complete but this time flies by and is proven to give a buzz and energy to your workforce that will retain once back at work in the office.
If you believe all teambuilding exercises and activities out there are the same and offer nothing new, this is where Urban Quest differentiates itself. We can customise our games for your specific workplace challenges so that your staff can gain a new perspective and work through them emerging on the other side as a team.
According to Watson Wyatt consulting firm, employees place twice as much value on a collaborative work environment than on the financial incentives they receive. On the first read that may seem ridiculous and a little shocking, but think about it, who really wants to get up every morning hating the idea of the day ahead of them even if it pays well?
In time even the most focused of employees will see the writing on the wall and seek out opportunities elsewhere. Good talent is hard to find, and we believe it’s worth retaining.
Team building social activities with a targeted agenda that both allows your staff to engage and interact with one another in a constructive and mutually rewarding way and imparts leadership, teamwork and support values that can be transferred directly to the workplace is the way forward.
One-off paintball or go-karting outings do little other than provide a temporary distraction, which is why Urban Quest is emerging as go-to specialists when organisations want their staff to become a TEAM.
So, when planning your next event, don’t just settle for the old familiars, try fun team building activities Melbourne employees have learned and grown from for years at Urban Quest. There isn’t another experience like it out there.
PAPER CLUES IN THIS DAY AND AGE? YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING…
Urban Quest is a highly engaging and interactive experience that uses the latest in technology and involves video, audio, Internet and other types of puzzles not available at paper-based events. Each team member has the opportunity to be equally engaged. No one is left behind or gets stuck!
CROWD CONTROLLERS IN FLUORO VESTS DON’T BELONG TO A FUN EVENT
We are passionate about creating a game atmosphere. This is why you won’t see typical crowd controllers wearing fluoro vests as our game marshals. All of our facilitators are disguised and trained to be in complete character as an essential and entertaining part of the experience.
No more tacky challenges
100% tried and tested, the dynamic nature of our quests will engage even the most reluctant of staff members. There are aspects of challenges that tap into different strengths and abilities, requiring everyone to be involved and engaged.

Our sensational 5 out 5 stars customer satisfaction rating and raving reviews that our past participants continuously leave for us say it all.

Fantastic experience - level of difficulty was perfect - not too easy but difficult enough to create teamwork - input from everyone to solve the clues and also bringing some humour too. I highly recommend this for a work team activity. We are looking forward to doing another quest soon.
We have completed multiple events with Urban Quest (both physical and digital) and they are a delight every time. Cannot recommend Serge and the Urban Quest team highly enough.
Experiences were a good length, really well designed and enjoyable. If you’ve read this far just book one!
Our team loved our event with Urban Quest! It was such a unique experience and everyone ended the day with smiles on their faces and memories which will stay with us forever.
