Brisbane experiences

Story Bridge

Sydney isn't the only Australian city with an iconic bridge. The Story Bridge in Brisbane is a defining feature of the city's landscape, and a must-see for any visitor to Queensland's capital. Connecting Fortitude Valley and Kangaroo Point, the Story Bridge is a major transport link in Brisbane and a vital piece of infrastructure. If you want to get a unique visual perspective on the city, with a healthy dose of adrenaline to boot, climbing the Story Bridge is the essential Brisbane adventure.

One of only three authorised bridge climbs in the entire world, this two and a half hour experience offers the climber a spectacular 360 degree panorama of central Brisbane.

On the way you'll hear interesting commentary on the history of Brisbane and the construction of this great bridge. Which, incidentally, is the largest ever steel bridge to be designed, fabricated and constructed in Australia, by Australians. Brisbane residents like to remind their Sydneysider cousins that their Harbour Bridge was designed and built by a British firm.

The Story Bridge climb is fully supervised and your safety is assured. This activity is suitable for all fitness levels and ages 10 and above. So why not take the challenge, and prepare to see Brisbane from a whole new angle.
