Recently my husband, 14yr old, 12yr old and myself participated in the instructed kayaking session on a Sunday afternoon. We found it easy to arrange and book, the safety brief useful, the instructor enthusiastic and the kayaking lots of fun. Would have to say though that if you have mobility issues it could be quite a challenge climbing down from... More

We took my Dad visiting from London on the Riverlife Night kayak from Kangaroo Point. I was a bit worried at first as when we turned up staff weren't very friendly and were also run off their feet hosting TWO weddings simultaneously! HOWEVER it was totally worth the wait for the night kayak - this was just a brilliant experience,... More

My boyfriend and I booked this kayaking experience online last month. I don’t know if we were particularly lucky but this way exceeded our expectations. Helped by the sunshine, calm water, and excellent tuition, we had so much fun. Definitely recommend.

Went to a mates wedding at Riverlife on the weekend. What a beautiful location. What a let down the food & service was. There was supposed to be 'ample' finger food for all the guests, but having spoken to numerous people since the event we ALL LEFT HUNGRY. Whilst the food tasted OK over the course of the evening most... More

Visited Riverlife using a coupon pass recently for two activities. I elected the Segway obstacle course and the abseiling course. It is important to book your activities and make sure you do so in advance as some activities can be booked out for up to a month in advance as I found out. The staff that operated the activities were... More

Kayaking the Brisbane River at night is an unforgettable experience. The scenery is spectacular and floating under the Story Bridge is truly remarkable. Hearing the bats roosting amongst the trees along the shoreline is really cool!!! The staff at River Life is super friendly and the guides are great. I opted for the prawn dinner after the kayaking and it... More

My boyfriend and I are travelling and decided that we would like to kayak on the brisbane river. We went to riverlife centre recently and paid to kayak during the day. We were not asked whether we had done it before, neither of us had, so presumed it was ok to continue once we completed all the necessary forms. The... More

At Riverlife we offer guided kayak tours for amateurs and kayak hire with instruction for those who have the skills and desire to venture out on the Brisbane River as a couple, rather than in a group. I am the owner and founder of Riverlife and I was present and witnessed your adventure on this day. At Riverlife we ask... More

My 9yo son and I did the 1.5 guided kayak tour of the Brisbane River. The online booking system was extremely easy to use. We parked up on RiverTerrace near the cafe and walked down the steep stairs to Lower River Terrace to Riverlife Adventure Centre. What a hive of activity. There were people everywhere booking into a large range... More

The Rock Climbing service at Riverlife Brisbane was an amazing experience. The staff and service was exceptional and for an individual who was a little nervous about rock climbing, the staff made us feel at ease and aided us in climbing as high as we could. The cliffs at Kangaroo Point are incredible and climbing as the sun sets just... More

We had a fantastic day from start to finish under the expert guidance of two professionals, Craig and Josh. We will definitely recommend rock climbing as a "must do" to friends and relatives when visiting Brisbane. Great photos from the day as well. A big THANK YOU to all involved at Riverlife Adventure Centre.
