We had a really good time kayaking up the brisbane river, there was 5 of us, and although we were a bit slow to catch on to the technique, we were still encouraged by the instructors, and were given a very good brief on how to use the kayak and get in and out

Was apprehensive about this tour because I'm not great with water but shouldn't have worried. Stuart our guide was awesome. I fell in twice but Stuart was there to help and encourage me. Was a real nice guy and made the tour for all of us. The tour itself lasted one and a half hours and was good fun. Would... More

I'd like to thank the Riverlife crew, all were very helpful and friendly. I took my two young teens for the Rockclimbing activity and we had the BEST time. Stu, our instructor was awesome. He supported us through the climb which was challenging and scary at times but we all felt safe as houses. Perceived danger, not real danger! Anyway,... More

We had a great night on New Years Eve, right on the river, great view of the fireworks, great music, well set up BUT, very disappointed that we paid $129 because we booked early only to get an email close to NYE saying that the tickets were now only $89, that's a BIG difference. But that aside it was a... More

Information stated that the climbing was suitable for children from the age of 8 as long as they had an adult to belay them. Also said there were instructors for the inexperienced. I took an 11 Year old and 13 year old and they were offered limited support and Aaron and Jules had to be asked continually for assistance. They... More

My wife arranged this as a surprise date... It was an awesome night. We had a great paddle on the river all the way up to Southbank and finished with really top quality prawns and a few drink on their river deck. Our meal was shared with four other paddlers who were all lovely. Our guides Morgan and Emma were... More

I have climbed and abseiled at kangaroo point with Riverlife on a few occasions now and each time as been fantastic fun and great value for money. Riverlife really are a well run outfit with a friendly engaging team. Well worth it.

Thank you to Ben and Kevin for making the childrens adventure so awesome. From the minute we arrived to when we were about to leave, the process was flawless. We were made to feel welcome and any nerves that were evident soon disappeared. The children Segwayed first and had a great time. Kevin made the experience easy and built so... More

Jules (I am assuming that is the correct spelling) was a great instructor, as he knew his trade, and gave very clear and simple instructions. He also made jokes at the right times for when some of the other abseilers were getting nervous. I am planning to book again.
