    I wouldn't want to spend a weekend with work colleagues to be honest, also I wouldn't want to share a bathroom with other people never mind a bedroom! Plus if people don't have two cars how do the spouses get there?

    Hi Elijahs Mum, I am going to sound like a huge party pooper but I do think an overnight stay with work colleagues is not suitable, especially the logistics of bathrooms/ beds etc, and I honestly think it is too much to ask for spouses and kids to drive up on the Sunday for lunch. If you are in Southern Syd, getting in and out of Nth beaches on a Sunday is madness on the roads. Also, that time of year is generally very hectic for people. Logistically, it may be too hard... I personally wouldnt put it to a vote because that could get awkward in the workplace. I would probably either arrange a fabulous lunch- Icebergs or something like that for employees and spouses, or if you want something suitable for a wide age range of kids as well, there are plenty of nice options for that too. Let us know what you decide

    Default Work xmas party - what do you think?

    I really think it depends on the workplace, a dinner out is enough time for me with my colleagues, and we get on well!

    My time off is for being with family and friends, I see my work colleagues enough at work.

    I'd definitely not share beds with colleagues either.

    My DH was forced to do this once ( he tried to opt out but was told in no uncertain terms that he had to go) he didn't drink and drove home the next morning at 5am as he was so uncomfortable. He ended up changing jobs because of it!

    They all have 2 cars but we would all be car pooling together to get up there I would think or maybe I could organise a mini van type bus to come get them? luckily all the spouses and kids get on really well, some staff have been with us for 7 plus years

    I'll ask everyone on Tuesday ( office meeting day) and see what they want to do and let you all know!

    We would have to do it mid November as all the houses are minimum 7 nights or booked out in December already ( I want to know who is spending $21,000 a week to rent a beach house !)

    I wouldn't blink at sharing a room, but wouldn't be comfortable sharing a bed. We regularly share rooms when we travel for work, the government does not splash out for individual rooms lol!

    Lovely idea!

    But at that time of year it might be a stretch.

    Could you do a swanky restaurant with spa vouchers?

    Maybe instead of putting your ideas on the table first, you could ask all your employees if they had any great ideas on what to do?
    Someone could come up with something worth considering.
