Wanting to try something new this year? Riverlife’s NYE Paddle & BBQ is sure to be a memorable way to farewell 2016 and welcome in 2017!

NYE Paddle & BBQ

Celebrate under a blanket of stars as Brisbane’s sky is brought to life for the last night of the year. Presiding over the centrepiece of this gorgeous city, you can experience New Year’s Eve as you never have before, on an illuminated night kayaking tour.

Once back on shore continue the evening with a delicious gourmet BBQ in a front-row location, right on the banks of the Brisbane River. Dancing the night away with our live DJ and toasting a glass of champagne at the stroke of midnight, this New Years Eve will be one to remember. Don’t let old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind to mind – gather your nearest and dearest and share in a night of paddling and celebrating at Riverlife.

This unique event sells out every year, please ensure to confirm your tickets early to avoid disappointment.
