About this adventure

Pick up a bike direct from Riverlife Adventure Centre at the base of the Kangaroo Point Cliffs and explore over 100kms of routes in and around Brisbane city! Some of our favourite loops take you along the River, through the Botanic Gardens, past Southbank and The Wheel, then along to New Farm park. There are so many beautiful areas to explore, you can’t go wrong!

With flexible hiring options, you can choose between either a half-day (4 hours) or full-day hire. Half-day hires are available throughout the day, so you can choose whatever time suits you best!
If you are looking for more than 4 hours, our full-day option allows you to collect your bikes any time from 9am.
Overnight (24-hour) hire is also available for a small additional fee.

All bikes are to be returned at least 15 minutes prior to closing.
