This is one of Brisbane's landmarks built in the 1930s. Floodlit at night and an imposing presence over the river by day. Many restaurants nearby take advantage of it as a backdrop.

Impressive bridge but you get the feeling it is a little cousin to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Built with huge amount of steel and when we walked across at night was lit up hot pink. Looked great.

Being one of Brisbane's main bridges, it is a beautiful sight to see it illuminated with the LED lights every night and reflected in the waters of the Brisbane River. Most nights the lights recognise a special event or a group of people, such as 'pink' for the Brisbane Festival or 'teal' for World Alzheimer's Day, as well as sporting... More

This bridge is beautiful especially all lit up at night. Worth a visit. If your brave you can do the bridge climb or just walk across

Had a wonderful view of this bridge from our hotel room. We were there during rainy weather, sunny weather and at night when it lights up. Brisbanites are obviously very proud of their bridge.

Walking across this bridge on a Fun run recently was such a pleasure. Now I have been on top of it (Bridge Climb) under it (City Cat) and walked it.

Climb it if you want. Great view and 3d effect as you drive under. Climbs are available for a price. Don't do that in winter.

We had an apartment on Kangaroo point which was looking out towards New Farm so the story bridge was right behind us. Due to the time difference between NZ and Australia we had a 2 hour advantage over the Australians so by 6am Brisbane time we were up and ready to go, I even dragged the other half out for... More

It's good to walk across this bridge or jog around it thru brisbane river. There's also bike/jogging path beneath it.

Well organised, strict safety measures, extensive quality equipment, friendly tour leader, sunset climb puts you on the top of the bridge when the lights come on. Three photo opps for climbers, but climbers cannot take their own cameras. Prompt, on time and efficient.
