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.

  • Great place to walk along the bridge and do the circle loop through eagle street pier and southbank. One of the highlights of my stay in Brisbane!  more »
  • The bridge itself doesnt seem that amazing to me. But whenever I fly in at night time to see it lit up is just beautiful.  more »

  • I loved Story Bridge and the history behind this Iconic Bridge is even more interesting. The lights over the bridge of a night are awesome and change every evening, or light up certain colours for certain occasions. Awesome!
  • You can either get great views of the bridge from the city, or from Wilson Outlook Reserve, located just along Bowen Terrace, which is a very popular spot for photographers as It overlooks the bridge with the city at its background. Finding a good spot for a photo from Wilson Outlook Reserve can be challenging when many tourists are around. Unless you want to try to climb the bridge, you can walk across the bridge on either side and marvel at the structure of the bridge for free!
  • Great climb. The 360 degrees views are mesmerising. Definitely worth it, whether you are a local or a tourist.
  • Awesome experience. I thought I would be afraid as I do not really like heights. Felt totally comfortable the entire time, very easy and secure.
  • Great view. This bridge is really big which connecting one side of Brisbane to another. Don't miss it
