“Go on, climb it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

My partner and I climbed this bridge for our fifth anniversary, what a special day that was!! We took the second climb of the day and were lucky enough to have clear weather to start with. From the top of hte bridge Brisbane looks so small! We were given little insights into some of the tallest buildings, the river, the river banks and parks and of course a full history of the Story Bridge story. It took us about an hour to complete it but it was by no means a difficult walk, we stopped about four times to admire different views, my favourite was looking back on the Bridge and the pub that it was built around. So of course after our climb we had to go and check out the pub which certainly didn't disappoint!

“iconic location in the heart of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

There are tours you can go on to actually climb the bridge, although have not done this. This bridge is iconic in Brisbane and joins the north and south of the city.

“Iconic symbol of Brisbane”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

The Story Bridge was constucted as a labour relief project in the mid thirties and opened 6 July 1940 at a cost of 1.5 million Pounds.

Bradfield, the builder of the Sydney Harbour Bridge was the Supervisor of this mammoth construction as well. The contract for construction was based on four and six lanes of traffic. luckily for us, the approved contract was for the six lane bridge to be constructed at an extra cost of 50 thousand Pounds extra cost.
Story Bridge Climb has excellent safe and well supervised climbs of the bridge where spectacular views from dawn to sunset are available for small groups of climbers.

“thankyou, story bridge.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Story Bridge - the only reason i found my way back to my hostel in Fortitude Valley many mornings after nights out in the city! just head for Story Bridge and I wouldnt be lost! haha!

For a great view of the city by night, a drive over the Story Bridge is a must!
