We just had the funnest morning in Brisbane with Riverlife's rock climbing. Our instructor was a ton of fun and made sure everyone in our group felt comfortable and had fun. We each climbed 2-3 times and made it to the top each time. Our instructor was awesome at guiding us through trickier spots and encouraging us to keep going.... More

Riverlife Adventure Centre offer a variety of activities on the banks of the Brisbane River, within the parklands and "Cliffs". We had the idea to purchase a "gift voucher" for our young grandson to abseil off the cliffs. At 13 we thought it would be great fun, but no he was terrified. So, I agreed to go with him (along...

For my wife's 45th Birthday I told her to go jump off a cliff and she did ! Abseiling down the Kangaroo Point cliffs was a wonderful way to get the heart racing and experience Brisbane from a new vantage point

Riverlife offer everything for a fun day down by the river in Brisbane city. The most popular is the Cliff rock-climbing, but that's a bit scary for me. I went for a canoe paddle on the river and a bicycle ride along the concrete paths by the river shores. They even had segways and rides on stand-up paddle-boards. Easy to... More

Canoe up the Brisbane river at night is spectacular. I did this with a group of work colleagues and was a little concerned about the amount of physical effort that might be required. They work at anyone's pace. Very capable instructor/guides. You can also do a paddle and dine. Enjoy some great local seafood after your event.

My business recently hosted a private media function at Riverlife and the experience was amazing. The customer service, food and location all made for a spectacular evening.

My family of 5 recently had the abseil adventure with Stuart as our fabulous instructor for a 3pm session. It was a challenging and invigorating experience. The view of the city and Southbank is just glorious. Our youngest is 9 and he left feeling on top of the world. The instruction was thorough, as well as being delivered with immense... More

Good spot on the cliffs for abseiling. Top views and good equipment. Close to town. Most of us had abseiled before but it was good to do it somewhere new. Recomended.

We attended a wedding here over the weekend and it was lovely. Gorgeous location. Downsides however, were a taxi driver that didn't know where we were going, a million stairs to climb down in heels followed by a 300m trek just to get to the location. That plus two other functions running concurrently which I wouldn't have loved as the... More
