4. Challenge your friends to an escape room

Exhilarating, entertaining and the perfect option for when the weather outside is less than stellar; escape rooms are one of the most popular group activities in Melbourne for a good reason. Immersed in a themed room, your group must work together to solve a series of riddles and puzzles before your time runs out. Battle the clock, scour the room for clues and revel in the cleverly curated experience. Be transported to the Roaring ‘20s, step back into the 1940s or spend time exploring another equally intriguing scenario. With plenty of brain-teasing escape rooms to choose from across the Victorian capital, narrowing it down to just one will be your first challenge!

5. Enjoy the finer things with a high tea experience

If your group happens to like the finer things in life, treat them to high tea in Melbourne. Opt for a classic high tea, complete with sandwiches, cakes, pastries and more, or select a package that comes complete with tasty cocktails, sparkling wine and other pairings. Take your experience to the next level with a cruise along the Yarra River, top off a great day at the National Gallery of Victoria or revel in a traditional high tea at The Windsor’s Victorian-era dining room. Delicious, a little different and a great excuse to spend some quality time with friends or family, high tea makes for one of the finer Melbourne group activities.
