We had a great view of this bridge from our hotel room and I was mesmerised by the never-ending changes in the colour of the structure. It is a beautiful sight.

I have walked this Bridge on numerous occasions, and the view I get is always stunning. It is about a 7 minute walk, and you can stop and see the beautiful city sight of Brisbane City, Kangaroo Point, South Bank, Newstead, and the Brisbane river. Although I have not done it, you can also get the chance to walk the... More

A lot of lighting effort has gone into improving the visual experience of the Story Bridge but not many people know that at Christmas time members of the public can assist in how the bridge displays its lights. Some of the programs available are very interesting. The bridge walk is much lower key than the Sydney harbour bridge one but... More

A terrific place to visit to get a view of the city. The view of Brisbane is beautiful, especially at night. You can actually walk a whole loop including the Goodwill Bridge and Story bridge, it take about an hour to walk. Good for a first time visitor to Brisbane or someone wanting to get a feel for the city.... More

I actually live next to the bridge and love walking over it most days, I always feel like I live somewhere special. The views of it when its lit at night is wonderful. We were lucky enough to change the colour of the lights over the G20 weekend and it felt great.

Its a bridge. Its an ugly bridge. You can do the bridge climb, but if you have done the Sydney bridge climb, don't bother as its not very big. horrible walk along it, with traffic.

Such easy access between the City and Southbank with lovely views. Great views and nice walk without feeling the crowds.

Its a picturesque bridge in a very industrial sort of way; looks imposing during the day and is lit up at night. Good views of it are to be had from down on Eagle Street Pier and from it you get a good shot of Brisbane CBD.

One more off the bucket list, an evening climb on Story Bridge, after a thoroughly excellent safety briefing and donning all the safety gear we started upwards, easy climb even for us oldies, commentary was very informative, the city had a different prospectus from the bridge and once the lights came on it was like a wonderland ( the guide...

Didn't climb the bridge, but saw lots of people (even elderly) doing that. Not so awesome in the day, rather ordinary bridge, but really great looking at night:)
