Company History

The idea for Corporate & Group Xperiences came about while Ray Carson was travelling around the world. He spent five years working in the depths of Africa, enhancing his military, paramedical and rescue skills. During this time he worked in nature protection, conservation unit, elephant capture projects and survival training. It was at this time when Ray became involved in outdoor adventure training and the idea of running his own adventure company was born. The dream he had of combining his skills, experience & passion for the outdoors and soon became a viable business.

With his new focus of carrying on his adventure training company to Australia, Ray returned from Africa to Queensland. On his journey home he had everything he owned stolen at the airport in Africa, so he was going to have to realise his dream with nothing more than the clothes on his back, his wild zest for real life adventure, his infectious enthusiasm and endless source of energy.

In 2006 Ray set up Corporate & Group Xperiences whose primary focus was running team building experiences for corporate clients such as Rio Tinto, Deloitte, KPMG, BP, ANZ, NAB Suncorp just to name a few. We focus on building strong relationships with large resort chains such as ACCOR, Spicers Group, Stella and the Mantra Group so we can design programs that enhance the designation for our groups.

It was around this time Ray had first came across Segways. Ray quickly identified the potential of Segways and in 2008 began acquiring these amazing machines for our programs. Being one of Australia’s most enthusiastic and experienced team building entrepreneurs, Ray created a whole new industry in Australian tourism. Xperiences has opened “Segway Xperiences Park” in Surfers Paradise- the first of its kind in Australia. It will soon be followed by several other new parks across Australia.

From a business that was seeded from an ‘idea’ in Africa has now grown into one of Australia’s most reputable and sort after outdoor Xperience providers.
