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.....

I am over 50 and have a general fear of heights so have never even thought about abseiling or for us Americans repelling. I had such a good time kayaking with Riverlife (see review) that I decided to go for the trifecta and try abseiling and rock climbing. Our instructor Stu was excellent and made everyone in our group feel... More

My partner surprised me with a Segway tour here and we had a great, patient guide who you could just loved his job. I've also abseiled through this company. Very professional. You can get good deals online often as well. A great way to do something new and adventurous without going too far at all. Makes you feel alive!

My 3 kids and I signed up for the unlimited school holiday adventure. After day 3 of the activities my youngest pronounced this as being "the best holiday ever" and we all agreed. All of the Riverlife staff were amazing, friendly and welcoming. Special note of outstanding awesomeness to staff members Aaron, Blair, Chris, Stuart and Kevin. The kids and... More

The activity which I undertook with the centre was the abseiling one. For this activity, you will need to hike up some steep stairs which will take you around 1 minute to clear. Once you reach the top, this is where the real mojo sets in. After safety gear had been put on, the staff then proceeds to a platform... More

If you are looking for getting started with rock climbing, this is the best place you can go. They arrange very dynamic group sessions with teams of two people so that you can squeeze as much as possible from the two hours that the activity lasts. There is one instructor for every team and they definetely knowhow to make it... More

Three friends and I did the 2 hour rock climbing at Kangaroo Point last weekend. I've lived in Brisbane my whole life and it has always been something I've wanted to do. We all ranged in rock climbing experience - from never having done it to pretty experienced. It was a great experience and so much fun. The guides were... More

Had a great time on the Segway tour with guide Chris. The Segway's were awesome however Chris really made the activity great with his positivity and local knowledge. At the end he gave us a 20% discount for next time. I will be back.
