I attended a business training meeting for Flight Centre Travel Agents and thought the venue was great, alongside the Brisbane River. The catering was exceptionally good and of a restaurant quality.The staff were enthusiastic, well presented and personable.

I went Stand-up Paddle Boarding on the Brisbane Rover with a group of classmates of mine, and it was a splendid time! The sights were outstanding, and I highly recommend bringing a waterproof camera if you have one (perhaps mount a go pro to the front of the board). The leader of our group was very lovely and excellent at... More

For anyone looking to do something fun and active in Brisbane, this is a great way to try something new. It's fairly simple to grasp but older folks should consider whether they are fit to complete the course as we had some lagging behind.

This place offers lots of things to do in Brisbane. One of my favorites is going on the canoes along the Brisbane River. We did the night canoeing and it was amazing and on a sunny day it would be fantastic. They also have bikes to hire if you're visiting Brisbane. You can also do rock climbing at Kangaroo Point...

Myself and my girlfriend went rock climbing here a couple weeks ago and it was a truly terrific experience. The staff were incredibly friendly, informative and very helpful when it came to the fundamental things you needed to do to climb those kangaroo point cliffs successfully. To add to the great experience, when you do reach the top there's a... More

Stop making excuses - get down to Riverlife and hire a couple of kayaks. It's not expensive, the staff and equipment are great and it's so lovely to see Brisbane from the water. Lots of other activities on offer too. Great way to spend a few hours!

Fantastic instructors, run very smoothly, well equipped with showers and lockers- we were able to head over to lunch at Southbank fresh and clean after scaling Kangaroo Point and Kayaking the river. Used the Groupon deal and it was so affordable for a solid 1/2 days advenure on Valentines day.

Riverlife has a fantastic location and they really make the most of it with their evening kayak trip. We had fantastic conditions and it made the river and the city stunning to look at from a very unique angle (can't imagine doing this on Sydney Harbour!). The guides were excellent and catered equally to those with more experience and first... More

This made a nice change SUP in baking got sunshine was a great way to see the city from the river. Guide was friendly but knowledge of the city lacked a bit. Good fun. Don't expect much of the changing facilities

Great experience to go on a kayak journey at night along the Brisbane River. Friendly staff, easy attitude, good kayaks - and a fun thing to do on a warm summer night. Although the paddling is easy, it is an advantage to have been in a kayak or canoe before. You do need to be agile to embark and disembark... More
