the story bridge is a steel cantilever bridge spanning the Brisbane river for vehicles connecting north and south suburbs of Brisbane. It is the longest bridge. We were told that some people who are adventurous also climb the bridge just for the heck of it.

You can climb it like you can the more famous bridge in sydney. It's a beautiful suspension bridge with the best views from the city cats on the river below. I also enjoy walking it's length one way then taking a ferry back accross the river to the riverside centre. Enjoy. 👍👍👍👍

It is the hallmark bridge that defines Brisbane city. It is a must visit structure during the Brisbane Festival (previously RiverFire) during the fireworks at the end of the Festival. The climb is not something that "has to be done" but can be enjoyed in a group.

I crosd the bridge twice a day and it is a great vantage point for seeing Brisbane city. Throughout the year they have different light colours gor different events and for Riverfire it has fireworks. It is worth a visit for anyone wanting yo get great views of the city or yo look at the actual bridge itself.

Walk downstairs to Ground floor and few minutes walk and can see The Great Bridge of Brisbane. Everyone knew Story Bridge (not sure why it called story ) Is a Brisbane Bridge. Part of city attraction. Just lovely to... More

I walk past here every day at work so I can see it in the mornings and evenings. It's beautiful in the morning and at night, the bridge is lit up.. Usually a different color every night. It's a beautiful view from eagle street. If you get a chance, you can climb story bridge.

My children bought a ticket for me for my Birthday. As I am over 60 I was a little worried but the climb was not hard at all. Safety is considered continuously, the sight from the top is amazing and the guides commentary was excellent. I recommend it to anybody who likes to do this kind of thing.

The Story Bridge is a lovely view to behold. Whether it is at night from the riverbanks (where you can see all of the city lit up) or from above- as one of the few bridges in the world you can actually climb over. As I continue to see beautiful bridges around the world I am proud to continue counting... More

It looks fine at night but if you can avoid travelling over it do so. Traffic is usually chaotic and it is difficult to get onto and around it is fairly basic place and not very attractive. If in Brisbane find another bridge to cross.
