A great event with craft beer, gourmet food & music
The wonderful people at Riverlife is putting together another event. This time to celebrate nothing more than fine food and great beer. Five Flavours combines a selection of craft beers, gourmet food, dessert and music in a wonderful location.

Riverlfie events give you the feel of a catered event right on the river. The combine food, drinks and entertainment.

About Riverlife

It is hard to put a handle on Riverlife. They provide adventure tourism activities, such as rock climbing up the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, abseiling down the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, kayaking, standup paddle boarding and Segway tours. They also provide a wonderful riverside venue and catering for events, especially weddings.

All through the year they organise a range of great catered events, such as Riverfire, New Years Eve and so on. But they also do events like Five Flavours where the focus is on the food and drink.

Five Flavours of Beer and a Cider

Don't know if I should be teasing them for have a choice of six flavours at a event called Five Flavours. It is though four beers, one ginger beer and one cider. Personally I believe the more flavours the better. Along with the beers and cider selection there is also several choices of wines. So I am not sure how many flavours that is in total, but there should be a flavour for everyone.

Five Flavours of Food

The food as well seems to have a number problem with the count. But even with only a choice of 4 different meal options, I am not sure which ones to choose from. The fifth flavour is made up with by ice cream, which I agree, deserves to be a fifth flavour.

The event is held riverside at Riverlife at Kangaroo Point. This lovely outdoor venue has the best views in town. While it is open air, there are several covered areas that can be closed off in the event of rain. While there are also a number of other shady spaces where you can relax and enjoy the many flavours of this event.


Tickets are $55 and include one food option and 2 drinks of your choice. If you want more drinks and food, they can be purchased at the event on the day. However with music, food and drinks, $55 is a reasonable bargain. Vegetarian and gluten free food options are available if you let them know in advance.
