Story Bridge, Brisbane

4.4
#7 of 48 in Sightseeing in Brisbane
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.
