Riverlife put on a great function for Riverfire night. The atmosphere was buzzing, the food was delicious and we met some really fun people there. Would definitely recommend this event to others who are looking for an up close vantage point with music, drinks and food included.

The staff at Riverlife was so accommodating to my boyfriend and me. We missed our flight and were going to be late to night kayaking. Ben felt so bad for us he set up a delicious romantics dinner on the river for just the 2 of us. Luke was a very personable and funny kayaking tour guide and Ann was... More

I wanted to take the 1pm Kayak group class on Sunday. I ended up making a mistake with my booking on the website and just doing a solo 2 hour rental. The class was fully booked so I just had to go on my own. Ultimately, this worked out in my favor. The instructors gave me a 10min personal safety... More

In Brisbane for the day on a team building trip. Lunch then an hour abseiling with the Riverlife crew. Great fun and the guides (Ben, Blair, Aaron) were really relaxed supportive. Highly reccommend

I went on a Kayak session with Riverlike today. To be fair, I was terrified of falling into the Brisbane River but our instructor Aaron made me feel very safe. He was very thorough in his briefing and during the session he was patient and calm. Pretty much everything you need when you're not confident. He also told stories about... More

Had a brilliant time abseiling off Kangaroo Point Cliffs with Chris A from River Life. Chris made us all feel safe, was encouraging and an all round champion. Highly recommend the experience for any level of experience.

Great place to go over the weekend, and try your paddle board and rock climbing skills, from River life center you can book everything, staff are helpful in answering any of your questions.... Cant say its a tourist activity, as a tourist its better to take a walk on top of kangaroo point hills.....
