Upon visiting Brisbane we decided that a walk across the Story Bridge was a must-do! Due to maintenance walks we were unable to walk on the city side of the bridge so we coudn't get any good photos but we were able to walk the full length on the opposite side. We got a ferry from Eagle Street Pier across... More

As far as a bridge is concerned, it does the job I guess. When staying in the Stamford Plaza, we had a good view of the Story Bridge lit up at night and it was pleasant enough but I probably wouldn't consider it to be a tourist attraction as such.

The Story Bridge in Brisbane is the longest cantilever bridge in Australia spanning the Brisbane River. Run walk or drive across it like you would a bridge, they do offer a bridge climb but we were unable to do that while we were here.

It does not look very attractive during the day but looks good at night. It is close to the city and there is a walk and it is worthwhile to get a different perspective of the river and the city.

Great for a walk up or over through the day, but to look at not so much. At night which ever your vantage point it's gorgeous lit up. You can't see it from Mt Coot-tha so don't try. Definitely a Brisbane icon

Easy walk over the bridge, or bike ride...on the pedestrian path of course! You can also do a bridge climb but that's a whole other review ;)

Fantastic at night time with lighting along it. If driving over it great views to be seen. Enjoy sites of Brisbane and surrounds.

Being an icon of Brisbane city, this bridge is the only one you can climb besides the harbour one in Sydney. Great views of the river and city skyline at dusk and dawn.

Walking across at night and you will see the beautiful city lights, easy to get to and a short and safe walk across.
