Riverlife is such a gorgeous backdrop at night. If you time the seasons right you will have a magic night under the stars and lights overlooking Brisbane’s CBD. We and our guests loved it.


Thank you so much Louise! It was a pleasure!

Isabell was our wedding planner at Riverlife and she made everything come together with lovely settings and catering for our special night. The venue was most accomodating with our choice of intimate setting for the ceremony and reception. The city backdrop was sensational and the marquee setup was perfect for dancing the night away.

Riverlife was an excellent wedding venue and our co-ordinator Jessica was highly professional, organised and responsive to our million questions and requests! It has an awesome atmosphere right next to the river, and the food and service was great too. Everything went off without a hitch. Thank you!

The experience was not great! The event managers were great but on the day they were not on the ball at all. They have 3 weddings on the same night so they missed our ham station. The views are just stunning which is the main reason that we picked the venue. Attention to detail is lacking.

It's right down on the river bank, and we got such beautiful photos there and did a few photo shoots over there as well. It was so easy to get into contact with them as well. It was also so easy for us and the guests as it was all at the one venue.

The account manager was incredible. She was a pleasure to deal with and always kept me up to date with things. The price was also very reasonable for the location and food was superb.

Anna from Riverlife was amazing and kept our special day, stress free. The food was amazing, and the views were perfect for all our guest to see.

Very flexible and was able to accommodate outside catering. Not very used to chinese or weddings from a non caucasian background but very open and accommodating. The views are fantastic and worth the money! It can get a little hot in the summer though but overall we all had a blast.

Perfect location and the set up was simple, yet beautiful. Anna was fantastic to deal with and a credit to the company. Everything went smoothly and i trusted her as the professional for it to all fall into place and it did! Stress free = happy bride.

We had ceremony and reception at Riverlife, and it was the best day ever. I really have no complaints. Everything was ready as discussed and pretty transparent, no surprises. It's a beautiful location and the food and service was good.

We had our wedding in a marquee, it was a little bit cold but apart from that everything was good and went to plan.


Thank you Marissa! It was a pleasure!

Surprisingly Affordable and gorgeous location! A well oiled machine when it comes to service and enough delicious food to feed even the biggest eaters! At less than $100pp including furniture and venue package, this stunning location on the brisbane river with incredible views is a hidden Gem. We starred on the river front deck and were delighted with surprise fireworks accross the river. The food is fantastic, we had the coctail menu, and you can BYO alcohol which reduces the cost considerably. the staff are organised and think of absolutely everything. couldnt recommend more, you can do as much DYI as you like or leave it to the professionals for a small fee. we had over 100 guests and spent less than 10k

The venue was fantastic. Food was good. The service from the staff was a let down. The event coordinator we never got to meet cause they kept cancelling. They were supposed to help us in giving our schedule which they didn't do which left our suppliers confused.
