Story Bridge, Brisbane

4.4
Scale the top of Brisbane's iconic Story Bridge to enjoy 360-degree views of the city, mountain ranges, and Moreton Bay Islands at dawn, afternoon, or night. These climbing adventures are available daily. The tour guides, who are expert climbers, explain the route and monitor safety. Necessary equipment (including sunscreen, sunglasses, rain-resistant jackets, and hats) is provided. For visitors preferring to stay close to the ground, there are riverside walks nearby. These are especially popular at dusk, when the bridge is illuminated with purple lighting all around its edges. The bridge, which opened in 1940, is listed on the Queensland Heritage Register. A visit to Story Bridge represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Brisbane trip planner to plot your vacation.

    The lights on the bridge add to the beauty of the city in the evening. So pretty at night. Everything about this place is designed to make spectacular views  more »

    We passed under the bridge as we took the City Hopper and took pictures of the bridge. Later, in the evening, we were out for a meal and the bridge was beautifully lit so more pics taken.  more »

    Night or day, it's always lovely to drive or bike across this bridge. The bike path isn't usually too crowded, but I've never biked it on a weekend morning.

    Some great views of the city at either day or night. Not too much of a walk to get there from the Riverside terminal.
