Melbourne Corporate Retreat Venue Hire Guide

Corporate retreats are an important workplace tradition. It's a way for employers at your company to give their hardworking employees a well-deserved break. A corporate retreat is also an opportunity for coworkers to bond and get to know each other outside of the office environment. Leaving the four corners of the office to have some well-deserved rest and recreation with your coworkers is something to look forward to even if the retreat will be held nearby.

If you're organising a corporate retreat in Melbourne, you're in luck. There are plenty of places you can go to in the city. Check out some of the Melbourne neighbourhoods that have the best event spaces for a team-building retreat (you could even book an estate on the outskirts!) Read our Melbourne Corporate Retreat Venue Guide below to find all the top tips for your corporate retreat.

Where can I find good corporate retreat venues in Melbourne?

Melbourne CBD

Melbourne's CBD is mostly made up of commercial properties. If you're looking for a hotel, this is where you can find a lot of corporate retreat venues that will make your team-building event something to remember.

The city's geographical layout allows for an infinite amount of choices when it comes to corporate events venues. These options include private function rooms in restaurants, mid-size function rooms in hotels and large ballrooms at convention centres.

Inner Melbourne

The Inner Melbourne suburbs are also home to various corporate event venues. Museums, art galleries and theatres, for example, have excellent facilities that'll make any team-building event a successful one.

Inner Melbourne also has convention centres, hotels and conference rooms with large spaces. If you're looking for something more rustic and closer to nature, you might also consider places like wineries, parks, botanic gardens and similar venues.


The ideal corporate retreat venue is somewhere that'll make you forget about the busy city life even if you don't leave Melbourne. If you want some sun and sand, head to one of the best beaches in the country. At Brighton Beach, you and your team can enjoy different activities like kayaking, surfing and paddleboarding as part of your team-building activities.


Greensborough, a suburb in Victoria, has a lot of venues that have what you need for a fun corporate event. The area has historic homes available for private hire where you can spend a more relaxed and intimate retreat with your colleagues.

Essendon Fields

The suburb of Essendon Fields has various corporate retreat venues to choose from. The area is home to a lake, wineries, parks, art galleries and museums where you can stroll around and escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Melbourne Docklands

The Melbourne Docklands in Victoria is the perfect place to hold your team-building event if you're looking for a little waterfront activity. It's also a popular shopping destination.

There are lots of modern buildings in this area where you can book a room. While you're there, you can rent a bike and explore the area with your team. If you prefer something more traditional, you can also rent boats to sail around the docklands area.

What should I look for in a corporate retreat venue?

There are many factors to consider in your search for a business retreat venue. Since this event is mainly for the benefit of the employees, you should consider their preferences.

Location and accessibility

The main objective of a corporate retreat is to give everyone a chance to sit back and relax. It's also a way to develop camaraderie within the group and probably have a healthy discussion on what can be done to improve the business.

A successful retreat should be stress-free and spending it in the perfect location is the first step to achieving that. If the venue is too far away, the attendees will end up stressed from the travel to and from the place. That's not a good start and end to your retreat. Choose a location in Melbourne that is conveniently near and accessible.

Conference venue capacity

If the retreat will last for more than a day, you need to book accommodation. Make sure that the venue event or meeting space is big enough for large or small conferences and meetings. Determine the number of attendees first and look for a venue that can entertain said number of guests.

Food and drinks

Does your corporate retreat venue provide catering? If the venue does provide it, find out what kind of food they have on their menu and if there are any restrictions on what you can order or bring from outside. Your attendees expect a tasty meal after a long day's work so it'll help if the venue has a decent restaurant with quality food. You should also provide some snacks and drinks for your attendees as part of the event. This is essential if you'll be engaging in a number of activities that will keep them busy throughout the day.


Make sure the venue has everything you need for your corporate retreat. This includes equipment, furniture and even a projector if you plan to have a presentation. If possible, ask about other available facilities such as WiFi access, parking spaces and restrooms.
