Macquarie Partners:
“We were very satisfied with the program. Many people said ‘I could not have done it on my own’ – a convincing comment that showed it was possible to work through as a team. The program exercised and improved our team work skills and we had fun while doing so. The excitement of retrieving clues, unscrambling the mystery word and solving the code on the lock. Challenging, achievable, and competitive yet fun. The whole event was great!”

“Normally I dread team activities, however thoroughly enjoyed the Treasure Hunt and got to see parts of the Rocks I never had visited, gaining a greater insight into our history.”
