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

I've been kayaking and abseiling with Riverlife a few times now and each time I've had a great experience. Kayaking is a great way to see the beauty of the Brisbane river and the CBD. With Riverlife you can go on a tour with a guide or go adventure on your own. Abseiling with Riverlife is a great way to... More

Have done a few things here including night kayak and attended a few events. Always well organised and fun. Plus the location provides a lovely view of the city.

Hosting a group of friends from interstate, I was looking for something uniquely Brisbane to entertain them on their stay. Being an active bunch, Riverlife was recommended to me by colleagues. After perusing through their array of different experiences, I settled on the Paddle and Prawns - I'm glad I did. My friends and myself could not speak highly enough... More

Our teenagers did the rock climbing and abseiling. Had a great time. Only tip: they need thicker/better gloves for the abseiling. They were extremely thin and in poor condition. Numerous members of the group complained about them and the rope burns to their hands.

I bought a couple of groupon deals as my adventure loving son was visiting and I wanted to show him a different view of Brisbane. I was a little anxious about the abseiling and had planned on bailing but the instructor was very helpful and reassuring and talked me through every step. Once my legs stopped shaking, I took the...

Went along to Riverlife's NYE event and it was really fun night. The food was great, staff were friendly, drinks kept flowing and is an awesome place to watch the fireworks - right on the river! I'll definitely be back for more of their events and will probably even try a few of their activities like the kayaking which looks... More

I attended a wedding at Riverlife this month and I have to say it was absolutely amazing. There are breathtaking views across the city and these only get better at night when the whole city is lights up. The staff were all very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was great and the service was... More

Great little adventure centre situated right in the heart of Australia's River City. Well organised and qualified staff with a variety of activities - a must if you're visiting Brisbane! Abseiling over the cliffs with views of the CBD well worth it!

Booked in for rock climbing, never done it before! Hanna was great with our booking, very friendly and patiently answered my questions. Craig our instructor was fantastic! Very encouraging, patient and even stayed on longer to allow us more climbing time. Hopefully we get a good deal when we book several lessons cause we are hooked!
