For my partners birthday I had booked a surprise abseil with Riverlife at Kangaroo Point. It was a great experience for both of us as we have just moved to Brisbane and you get a great view of the city while abseiling. We had great instruction from Ben and encouragement every time we slowly went over the edge. A great... More

The professional yet laid back manner of all staff involved ensured the adventure was a most enjoyable experience. The instructor (Ben) was very knowledgeable and did an awesome job with quickly getting me up to speed and had us cruising through along the river and the Botanical Gardens in no time! Highly recommended!

The guys down at Riverlife are very helpful and will give easy instruction before you jump in a kayak and follow the river edge in the direction of your choice, u dont need to be overly fit to do this as you just go at your own pace.

Following an introduction to the basics, we rode Segways from the cliffs at Kangaroo Point to the Botanical Gardens via bike ways. The Segways were fun and easy to ride and a great way to cover the distance in a short amount of time. Our guide (Liam) was responsible but laid back and friendly at the same time which was... More

Had a really fun day kayaking with our instructor Locky who was very knowledgable, followed by adrenalin rushing abseiling down the Kanagaroo Point cliffs! Would highly recommend Riverlife with friendly staff and good value for money adventures in Brisbane.

I've spent some months in Brisbane and I have to admit that the best way to have fun in this beautiful city is to explore it from different angles and to add some adventure! I've been to Riverlife many times, on my own or with friends, and always had such an amazing time! Seeing the skyline out of a kayak... More

Me and my friend went Rock Climbing with Riverlife at the Kangaroo Point Cliffs just last week. It was SO much fun, I wouldn't have thought it would be so much of an adrenaline kick! Stuart, our instructor, was amazing and knew every niche and stone of the cliffs, which was very helpful in finding spots to put our feet.... More

A few days ago I did the 30 minute Segway tour at Riverlife. We went to the park under the story bridge and it is really nice to see it from another perspective. Our instructor (Della) was really friendly and helped us with getting on the Segway first and getting comfortable on it. I definitely recommend people doing the Segway... More

A 2 hour kayaking session down the Brisbane river was one of the best days i've had in a long time! It was a great way to soak up the beautiful afternoon sun and i met three lovely people in the process. I had both a peaceful and thrilling time, and it was a great workout for my arms. The... More
