Breathtaking experience from the top of the bridge, where you can observe 360 degree view of Brisbane city. An amazing experience that everyone should have.

Yes it looks good in photos and it's cool to drive along but the best way to experience it is by climbing! That way you learn more about the history but also about Brisbane as a whole, only downside is you can't take a camera up!!!

Excellent location, excellent food, excellent wine list. What's not to like! This place has been around for yonks and understandably so.

Taking an easy stroll across the bridge, which was adjacent to our hotel, The Adina, we were captivated by the fantastic views of the river and the goings-on along it's edge. We also enjoyed a return visit to the Storey Bridge Hotel, for some pre-party drinks. The entire place was 'pumping' at 5pm.

Just been repainted again. All green and shiny. Shame there are so many signs up to prevent suicides though.

Opened in 1940, the Story Bridge has become one of Brisbane's most recognisable icons. It carries 6 lanes of traffic to cope with the ever-increasing commuter traffic. Crossing the bridge offers a birds-eye view of this ever growing city. At night, it is now lit with energy-saving lights that regularly change colour.

The bridge is in the centre of Brisbane and is lit up each night in a different colour. You can actually book to walk over the bridge if you wish but its pretty high!

My husband and I did the Story Bridge Climb back in 2009 and my knees were trembling the whole time, but it was fantastic, we still talk about, especially each time we are in Brisbane and see "our" bridge. Highly recommend the climb. This visit we just climbed the stairs near the pub and walked across the bridge and back... More

What's not to love?! This is one of our treasured landmarks. Best view of this bridge is from Eagle St Pier. Sip a beverage and enjoy!
