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

Worth the climb to reach the bridge. The view each way ifs magnificant. Even the continual traffic cannot interfere with the experience. Add this to the riverside walk.

We climbed the bridge in steady rain and it didn't lessen the experience at all. James was an excellent guide and when you have finished and been told you have navigated over 1000 steps you feel like you have accomplished something special.

if the bridge wasn't there, then your car would def plunge into the river below, so its really handy. If the fall didn't kill you, then maybe the car would sink and you would drown. And even if you made it out of the car, then your car would be ruined and that's not cool. Unless you can claim the... More

The Story Bridge is proudly Brisbane spanning the Brisbane River at Kangaroo Point this old master is best viewed from Eagle street pier either over breakfast ot from one of the many bars or restaurants in the evening. You can also take one of the organised bridge climbs and wonder at the beauty of Brisbane.

A centre for after work meetings and "where it all happens" on a weekend. We enjoyed our meals in the restaurant and would specially recommend the steaks - all were tender, tasty and succulent. We were not that impressed with the fast food served in the courtyard. The bar is fascinating if you are a people watcher and/or a sociable... More

Beautiful city with fantastic views of it from the bridge. We did the evening bridge climb - amazing!! Climbed up a lot of stairs in the late afternoon, watched sunset from the top & saw all the city lights come on, then climbed down after dark. Iconic land mark for beautiful Brisbane

Mention Brisbane and I think of the Story Bridge; I've walked over it and rowed underneath and always found it impressive. The shape is so well known in the city and now they light it at night it's even more noticeable. View it from the Eagle Street pier, or around at New Farm, or from a ferry, it's great to... More

Love the different colours at night. Easy access to the south of Brisbane and Kangaroo Point. Meriton Apartments Adelaide Street quite close by.

There's now pretty lighting at night, but you can view this wonderful structure at any time of day. It's still able to been seen from various vantage points around town in spite of the glass and concrete buildings blocking so many more. It's also able to be climbed, but that's not for me. I'll watch from the ground. I'll let... More
