8 year old loved abseiling!

A huge thank you to the Riverlife abseiling team for encouraging my 8 year old to extend himself. He had a wonderful time & we will be back again soon.

Fantastic morning on the river. Many thanks to Luke for his help and knowledge. Loved the different perspective of looking at the water life from the river.

Decided to go Kayaking and Abseiling as my last minute activities before heading back to Sydney. My cousin and I had a wonderful time with our instructor - Stuart, he was extremely encouraging and experienced, nontheless making sure we are safe and well prepared. All the staffs were super nice and cheerful as well. Definitely would recommend!

We went kayaking on a Friday night and had prawns and drinks afterwards. It was a great way to spend the night after a long week. The guides are very helpful and I would recommend it for beginners as well as experienced paddlers. The prawns were beautiful and fresh! Yum!

We held our wedding here in the sunset marquee, it was a gorgeous venue and all the guests raved about how amazing the food was. Dan and Sarah were fantastic on the night. Kate and Dan were very patient and dedicated to giving us the wedding we wanted despite the unpredictable weather. Kate was very flexible throughout the planning process.... More

A lovely 90 minutes of paddling on the Brisbane River is a great way to finish the day. The equipment was good but the waiver process was too slow. They really need to allow people to complete the form before they get there to stop the bottleneck on arrival. I would also like to see the price reduced by 10%... More

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
