“Can't wait to do myself”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Friends of mine just came back from this tour and have convinced me to do it. I have seen the tour from the city cat and it looks awesome and I hope to do it at Christmas

“It is a real adventure!”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Take this climb, it's one of the tougher bridge climbs (harder than Sydney Harbour Bridge!) and well worth the views of Brisbane City. I took my family for the early morning climb, but the night/dusk climb would be awesome to see the city lights. A lot of history in the bridge - spoken by guide through headset, plus facts about surrounds. Very safe, it is quite high, never felt unsafe during climb. Suit up and take to the top of the Bridge. Loved it.

“It's ok ... but it's not the Sydney Harbour Bridge”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Have done the Story Bridge climb twice now ... once as a team event and second to give my wife an opportunity to test out on a smaller bridge to see if she felt confident for the Harbour Bridge.

Both time the guides have been relatively young and fun loving but knowledgeable and clearly safety conscious.

It's like all other bridge climbs I've done. First you spend time completing forms and having breath test, the more time getting kitted up and in 'training' (a demonstration and pratical go at locking on to the safety cable). There is then a bit of a walk before you actually get up on to the arch of the bridge. But this is no different in Sydney.

If it is busy there will be groups in front of you and there will be times when you stop to take in the view (the reality is that the stops are created by the photo opportunities set up ... it can take a bit of time to take pictures of everyone). You can not take you own camera ... in fact you can't take anything that could fall and create hazard below ... hats, sungalsses etc are all clipped on or have safety lanyards.

The climb is that steep ... a steady incline but nothing to taxing. Up one side, across the spar at the top and back down the same side (Kangeroo Point end) of the bridge but in the other side of the road. Think 'one way system'.

It's interesting to do ... probably 'OK' on the value front... but it doesn't quite have the same iconic feel as the Sydney bridge climb.

“Fantastic experience!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Loved the entire experience, particularly as the trip we chose was in late afternoon and we saw the sky and city in transition from day to night. Awesome.
