    What to Expect
    Step off the edge of the Kangaroo Point Cliffs and into a vertical world! As you wait in anticipation to hear your name being called for your turn – stand back and enjoy the uninterrupted views of Brisbane and watch the city cats, boats and kayakers skim across the meandering river!

    Let your experienced instructor’s help you conquer your fears and guide you safely over the edge while you experience the extreme rush of abseiling. With trust overcoming natural instinct, you will be abseiling down the 20 metre high cliffs in no time.

    Abseiling sessions are guided by qualified and experienced instructors. No experience is necessary as each session includes full instruction, a safety briefing and equipment. Participants must be at least 8 years of age and wear and use the safety equipment provided. Safety equipment includes a helmet, harness, rope and gloves.

    We live in The Whitsundays so our rock hopping is a little more boulders and waterfalls rather than cliff faces. A great team of people sharing their love of the outdoors is what we found at Riverlife. From check-in ‘til final send off the crew...More
