I experienced the bridge during a morning run. Had to stop and enjoy the view from the bridge and of the bridge. They have a bridge climb like Sydney Harbor Bridge for less than half price. (I didn't do it so cannot rate it.)

Coming from Sydney, the Story bridge did not impress me initially as much as the Harbour bridge, but after a while I started appreciating it more and more. It is really beautiful at night with the different lighting and the reflection of the lights in the river make for a very romantic mood around the pier. Worth seeing at night.

It was a great chance to see the lights of Brisbane as we completed a sunset tour. But be prepared for a slow paced climb as there were stops along the way for other groups to move ahead.

Kind of overrated as a bridge. It's nice for driving on though. Noisy to sleep. Would be better with more lanes.

The concept in and of itself is great. Climb high (relatively speaking) where the regular public cannot access. I was leery about it from the start and only decided to join at the last minute. That was before I found out you couldn't bring your phone or camera. The short story is that it is not worth the money. I'll... More

I thought this would be the poor cousin tour of the Sydney Harbour bridge but we were very impressed about every aspect of the tour. I'd highly recommend it to anybody visiting Brisbane.

This is a good pub, where you can get a decent steak that is cooked properly. In addition, they have some decent wine-by-the-glass options, which are reasonably priced.

Do the bridge climb, it's amazing! We had a great guide and a fabulously clear day so the views out over the city towards the Glasshouse Mountains and the McPherson Range were brilliant. Just the right amount of info and history to make it interesting without being overloaded. Definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Queensland.

In a strategic viewing place over the river near our hotel. At night the bridge is lit up with thousands of lights, a different colour most nights, which is beautiful. In the day time it looks magnificent, especially when going under on a river cruise (and when people are doing the bridge walk!!). Worth a walk and/or drive over, especially... More

Fabulous Bridge. Spectacular at night and wonderful backdrop to all river activities. Cruising underneath was great.
