We had a great time abseiling Kangaroo Point. We are avid activity-seekers and were impressed with the views, experience and our guides Casper and Harry. I would have loved a third abseiling run however two was still great as the initial nerves are out of the way and you can enjoy the view on the second. Thanks to the team for a seamless and fun experience

Would recommend taking photos just above where you abseil (if you go up the stairs there is a lookout on the street where you can capture where you descent from and the wide city views without bushes etc in the way. Also recommend NOT parking close to the office as the road is very narrow and was extremely busy on Sunday. We parked further up the road and walked, the walk is lovely along the river.

Brilliant experience! The location is lovely, with an amazing view which you enjoy when you're preparing for your descend. Jen, the instructor, was very attentive to the different levels of experience and perhaps confidence, and endured that everyone in the group felt save. Definitely recommend this activity to see the city in a different way and then stroll around Kangaroo Point and Southbank afterwards.

It was a good experience and Lachlan who was out instructor was very knowledgeable and helpful. I’ve never done abseiling before so he helped make me feel safe.

I do think however that the money was not quite worth the experience as the group was too large for individuals to get a good amount of experience.

WOW!!! What an awesome experience! Couldn't have done it without CASPER , our abseiling guide! He knew all the right things to say to comfort us through our hesitation of droppping over the edge, concquering that fear of giving into falling off a cliff when you begin the decent! Such a spectacular spot and such a beautiful cliff face. Once your're over it easy, as our guide said, just waddle on down like a penguin and dont forget to take in the spectacular views along the way!
I went with my two teenage sons and they had a blast! You even get to do it a second time if your keen! Thank you Riverlife and Casper for this wonderful experience. We will be back next holidays to climb the cliffs!!!

The second time down was more enjoyable as I was able to relax and listen and abseil down.
Enjoyable views while waiting. If going in a group, bring water you can leave on bench tables. Julian was very informative and knowledgeable, we felt confident and safe. Maybe to encourage and builf confidence, allow experienced abseiling people to go first so inexperienced people can watch and learn. Great experience!

I have wanted to abseil the Kangaroo Point cliffs since my first visit in 2018. Now living in Moreton Bay, I received a voucher as a birthday present. My visit was less than 2 weeks after the 2022 floods, but the Riverlife Centre was not showing any sign of their trauma. Clean and it seemed like all facilities were functioning.

The only thing that reduced my score was that our start time was delayed due to having to wait for two people that had booked and not shown up. I know businesses like Riverlife have to be somewhat flexible, but as my wife and I did have to get back to Redcliffe after the adventure, it left us feeling a little rushed.

The guides were thorough and briefed the group well. Equipment was well looked after. And the abseil? Big smile on my face! City views are great.

Getting there was not what we had planned. The most convenient way would be by river ferry, but they weren’t running due to the floods. We got an Uber to Thornton Street (Ferry Terminal) and it’s a short walk along the riverbank. Again, due to the floods, the site was apparently not the usual one, and was a moderate walk away.

Would like to return for a twilight or evening abseil.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. It's good to hear you had such a great time here at Riverlife abseiling and we apologise for the wait due to the missing customers. For us it's always a difficult decision as we don't want people to have to wait but often customers are getting lost on their way down to our Adventure Centre and we try to give them some additional time to find their way. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. We absolutely recommend a twilight abseil. You will get the best mix of golden hour and the sparkling city skyline during nighttime.

I was only in Brisbane for a couple of days so wanted something a bit different. Really I wanted to do climbing but this was close enough !
There were quite a few of us in the group, instructions were clear and concise and the chap doing it (who's name I have forgotten) was very approachable and patient from what I saw.
It was not made clear that there is quite a walk from the reception to the bottom of the stairs to get up to the top of the climb, obviously the climb up is quite steep, but that was pretty obvious !! There is very little shade while you wait but suntan lotion is offered and there is a water fountain by the road. I went fairly early in the group and the sun had gone in but I wouldn't have been that happy standing for 30/40 minutes in the Brisbane sun...
This was a good and unusual thing to do in a new city, so would recommend it.

A fun family activity for our first weekend in Brisbane. We had the best of both worlds while abseiling with a sunset and watching the city light up and night. Great point of view of a very pretty city. Jayo was great with both the boys and had the eldest zooming down the cliff in no time while the younger one will need to eat a few more donuts to be able to follow suit.

We had a fantastic experience abseiling at Kangaroo Point Cliffs. A professional and friendly experience, Casper guided us through the experience, calmed our fears and helped us conquer the cliffs. He gave clear instructions and made the experience super fun. We loved the abseiling and would highly recommend to anyone wanted with a sense of adventure.
