Great venue. We planned our end of year event at Riverlife last December and it was fantastic! Staff were great, the owners were so lovely, everything was perfect. I wouldn’t hesitate to go there again for any type of event.Clarissa Jade

“The team at Riverlife were great to work with and extremely helpful in assisting us to plan our Wedding. We were so pleased that we found a venue where we could have both the Ceremony and Reception in a beautiful natural setting in the heart of Brisbane. We couldn’t think of a more perfect place in Brisbane for our wedding and would highly recommend Riverlife to anyone looking for a wedding or function venue to wow their guests.”Ben and Holly Stokes
Our wedding at Riverlife was the happiest and most enjoyable day of our lives. Even despite the rainy weather, Riverlife were able to provide us with our beautiful dream outdoor wedding. From the moment we booked our special day a year in advance until the end of the wedding reception, Riverlife catered to our every need and request to ensure that we had the most perfect day. The venue, the people, the food, and everything in between were just amazing and we couldn’t have been more grateful or pleased.Amy & Brad
I wanted to take this moment to thank you for what was, one of the best nights of our lives! My guests have commented so highly on the quality of food, and everyone went home with full bellies – this is just what I was looking for in a cocktail party. Thank you to your team who I know work tirelessly in the hours leading up to our special event. I hope we all get the opportunity to work together again, and I cannot stop telling people about how amazing the night was. Thank you again for not only making the memory for Stephen and I, but also for sharing in the night that we will forever remember as one of the best.Kathleen and Stephen
