The silly season is upon us! If you've left your Christmas party planning with only a week to spare, it's not too late to sort out the perfect office get-together. There's always a hectic rush that comes with the festive season so it's not uncommon for some workplaces and groups to be late to the party when it comes to booking something spectacular. These last-minute winners are sure to impress and offer something a little different.
Whether you're adventure junkies or you're after something more laid back, picking the perfect get-together can be a challenge. Especially when it comes to multiple people and tastes to cater for.

Hire a Water Obstacle Adventure
Christmas time is always incredibly warm in Western Australia so if you're after a party that cools you up but gets your blood pumping too, why not hire a water obstacle course? Race your workmates, challenge yourself and your team.

If you're not up for an obstacle course (but still want to get wet and wild) you can hire a dunk tank and casually dunk your boss instead. Let off the end of year work steam and show your mates and your boss exactly how you feel!
Wolf Lane[ in the CBD makes for an impressive end of year party location. Get festive with some delicious cocktails, where you can book an interactive cocktail making experience and sample your own work. Over the holiday season, the venue adds some Christmas magic with festive food stations to indulge in too. If the office is due for something a little different, book in a Fairy-tale adventure or the 'Drink Me' cocktail experience which features themed packages including 'Down the Rabbit Hole' and 'A Mad Tea Party'.
Also in the CDB, Choo Choo's Bar do their very own cocktail masterclass too. I did this one a few years back for work EOFY celebrations and it was a lot of fun. Like Wolf Lane, this bar showcases its own level of quirkiness, with small bites, live music and some of Perth's best cocktails on offer.
Cruise the Crystal Swan
If you're after something a little more laid back, the Crystal Swan Cruise is a stunning boat venue. Here, you'll be treated to waterfront views while you sip on bubbles and eat more food than you can handle. The boat caters for up to 100 guests, perfect for the Christmas office party or a festive night out with your friends, and follows the swan river with 360-degree sights to soak up.
The menu caters to all flavours, with seafood buffest, tapas and plated options to consider. The Crystal Swan prides themselves on an unforgettable experience, with quality drinks and foods for everyone to enjoy. It's also the only cruise in Perth that offers panoramic views of the Perth City Skyline along with all the perks to treat you and your friends to a festively awesome time.
Practice Your Swing at Holy Moly Golf
In case you haven't heard, the old Elephant and Wheelbarrow in Northbridge has had a facelift. It's been transformed into a mini-golf extravaganza themed with a pop-culture twist. Holy Moly turns traditional putt-putt into a completely new sensation of the craziest round of golf you've ever played. Every hole is unique with something you wouldn't quite expect in a typical mini golf game, including a clever combination of pool and golf!
The indoor golf course only opened in November and is already buzzing with action. Mini-golf fans are excited at the chance to both putt and drink, as it also comes with a full-service bar and food, with Holy Moly golf hats and clubs provided. Depending on budget, you can book 9 holes or 27 holes ranging from $16.50 per person to $49.50 per person. Definitely a bundle of laughs essential for the festive season!
Last minute Christmas party bookings don't have to be a drag. With a little creativity and inspiration, your festive get together in Perth will go off with a bang! What will you be booking this holiday season?
