Story Bridge, Brisbane

(750+ reviews on the web)
Bridge Tourist Spot
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. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Brisbane holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Story Bridge and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The Story Bridge is an iconic piece of Brisbane's history, that is a vital link for thousands of daily travellers and commuters between the Northside and Southside of Brisbane.
  • A Massive Story Bridge in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, and it's a wonderful place to come to enjoy the scenery and it's view at from top of the Lookout from the Story Bridge, and it's a really great hike if you consider yourself fit enough to walk the distance and walk along this story bridge too😉👍
