I booked into do some kayaking on the Brisbane River. The company ask you to take a guided class as your first experience with them. From the time we began, Lawrence was utterly professional and seemed genuinely interested in the five of us. He assisted our experience so we succeeded!

A big thank you to Isabelle and her team for making our special day such an effortless one. There are a million details around the venue and catering requirements which we tend to worry about leading up to the big day but the team's professionalism and attention to detail certainly helped us to focus on the truly important things, like...

Conducted the abseil activity today with my two daughters. I thought the safety briefing was too short and lacked definition, particularly for a high risk activity such as abseiling. The instructor failed to check harnesses thoroughly, straps were hanging out and chin straps on helmets hanging out, all of which I have seen get caught up in the rope when... More

Hello Keith, I am also a qualified abseiling instructor and the owner of the Riverlife Adventure Centre. Training solders to abseil in the Army (without back-up safety lines and rated anchor systems) is indeed a high-risk activity. Abseiling at Riverlife is a low risk adventure experience with back-up safety belay lines attached to each participant and facilitated by trained, experienced... More

We did the evening guided kayak along the river and it did not disappoint. Luke our guide was great and very knowledgable about different Brissy landmarks. It's such a great way to explore and so beautiful at night. I can highly recommend it!

Me and my boyfriend went abseiling with Morgan on 3rd April. It was an amazing experience and we both loved it! Can't thank Morgan enough as he could see how scared I was and reassured me loads. Highly recommend. Thanks again Morgan :)

Riverlife day kayak was awsome!! I realy enjoyed the whole trip, thanks to great instructors 😊 if you are going kayaking ask for instructors Luke &/ or Kevin. They are the best, great instructors, as well as good animators! I really recommend if you are in Brisbane and want to try some adventure activities and wanna do some some sport.

If you are in Brisbane, its a sunny day and you're looking for something fun to do, take the ferry over to the Thornton Street terminal and after a short stroll you'll end up at the Riverlife Adventure Centre.
