The Story bridge is a Brisbane icon and like the name suggests it tells a story of Brisbane throughout the decades. It is a wonderful back drop to the city at night especially for photo opportunities taking in the City and wonderful Brisbane river. It might not be the Sydney Harbour Bridge, however it is as much a part of... More

Did not get up close and personal as I did the Sydney Harbour Bridge and couldn't imagine this being better. But I rode across it on a bike tour and got a few good views of it from different angles.

The western side of the Story Bridge provides the perfect vantage point if you're interested in a photo into the guts of the city. The river creates a perfect setting at any time of day, but I've noticed a lot of people perched with cameras later in the afternoon trying to get a shot of the city as the sun... More

This lovely old bridge just celebrated its 75th birthday and is still going strong. It has a great sense of brawn as it stands firmly upon old stone piers.

At night a drive or walk over the story bridge is a great experience. Often light up or themed for an event the story bridge changes a lot but will always be a great landmark in Brisbane.

Lit up at night, it's a beautiful sight in Brisbane. You can do a bridge climb, or walk over it, or just enjoy the drive. The lights change colour for different causes or celebrations, connecting Brisbane.

Not sure I can really call a bridge an attraction, its functional for sure but nothing special. Best part of it would be it gets you from north of the river to south and vice versa

I like this bridge, it looks fabulous at night with the lighting. Visiting Brisbane often and staying in East Brisbane the bridge makes easy travelling in and out of the city.
