Ever seen people abseiling the Kangaroo Point Cliffs and wondered “why not me?” To help make your abseiling dreams a reality we’ve introduced a Twilight Abseiling Experience to Friday Summer nights at 6pm. This NEW experience is the best way to rediscover Brisbane’s unique nightlife.

Challenge yourself as you take a deep breath and step over the edge of the 30m high cliff. Steadily begin your decent while the city lights twinkle in the background. Nervous? That’s perfectly natural! Our amazing, qualified instructors will guide you through your experience insuring you are safe and confident. When your session is complete, head back to Riverlife to join us for a chilled beverage and grazing board in one of our riverside marquees.
