About Us

Elude Escape Rooms are run by Julia and Darren.  They are now considered as Escape Room Enthusiasts after discovering Escape Rooms whilst touring Europe.   To date they have completed over 370 Escape Rooms in 14 countries and are always eager for the next challenge.

They opened their first self built and designed room in November 2017 , “Perpetual Motion“.  The second room, “Framed“, opened in March 2018, “Yin Yang” in November 2018 and “Torquay” in December 2021. “Stumped” the first of its kind in Australia an outdoor escapade in Nov 2022 followed by an outdoor escapade for kids (8-12yrs) Busy Bees Dec 2023.

Plans have recently been approved for a further 3 rooms.

Darren has come from a military background, having serviced in the Royal Air Force for 22 years and emigrated to Australia 8 years ago to join the family business.  Darren wishes to concentrate on the benefits of Leadership Training which can be derived from certain aspects of Escape Rooms.

Julia has come from Customer Service Management and Operations Management roles and lastly running her own recruitment agency. Julia can see the benefits of Escape Rooms to be utilised as a tool in the recruitment process to select suitable candidates for positions and promote Team Building activities.

Darren and Julia design their own rooms aiming specifically at Team Work, Communication, Problem Solving and Task Focused challenges to draw out those skills to provide deliverables to the client.

With their combined skills, they understand the importance of giving the customer a full experience and not just a game.

Whilst enormous fun, running an escape room still requires up to date business skills to be successful.  After attending the free one day business workshop in Parramatta by Dale Beaumont both Julia and Darren enrolled for the Business Blueprint program.  “Getting clear and concise guidance from the start has enabled us to accelerate the growth of our escape room business.

Inspired by the passion that Dale Beaumont has for helping others, both Julia and Darren raised $10,000 for the “Hands Across the Water” charity by completing a 500K bike ride around Thailand.
