Brisbane: Story Bridge Adventure Climb

1. Brisbane: Story Bridge Adventure Climb

The Story Bridge Climb provides the best 360-degree panoramic view of Brisbane city from the heart and soul of Brisbane’s most iconic landmark – the Story Bridge. Your adventure begins at base camp, directly under the Story Bridge itself. After a quick pre-climb brief, you’ll depart the base and ascend a spiral staircase that leads to the start of the suspended walkway directly beneath the Bradfield Highway (Brisbane's shortest highway). You’ll start your journey along the suspended walkway to the base of the southern pylon, learning about the colorful history of the Story Bridge and Brisbane as you go. From here - it’s climb time! Start to venture up through the inner Eastern bridge arm, climbing level with one of Brisbane’s busiest commute points, and then ascending straight up the south-eastern cantilever arm that stretches over the Brisbane River and reaches up into the sky. Before you know it you’re celebrating with your climb group on the summit platform, where you’ll get your bearings and hear some fun facts about the amazing 360 panoramic view before you. See Brisbane and its surroundings, including the Glass House Mountains, Moreton Bay, and the Scenic Rim. Venturing further along you’ll explore the bridge from a different angle, traveling approximately halfway across the river below before returning to the top platform for a final climb group photo before your descent back to base camp. Every climb to the top includes a group photograph, with additional individual photographs available for purchase afterwards - once your adrenaline has calmed down! See the glittering nighttime lights of Brisbane below - a unique vantage point for such a view with twilight option.

Brisbane: Abseiling at Kangaroo Point Cliffs

3. Brisbane: Abseiling at Kangaroo Point Cliffs

Step off the edge of the Kangaroo Point Cliffs into a vertical world. As you wait in anticipation to hear your name being called for abseiling Kangaroo Point Cliffs, stand back and enjoy the uninterrupted views of Brisbane and watch the City Cat ferries, boats, and kayakers skim across the meandering river. You are in control as you descend down the cliffs, going as slow or as fast as you like using the rope at your side. Each session includes full instruction, a safety briefing, and equipment. Your friendly instructor will also be at the top of the cliffs holding a safety line to guide and encourage you the whole way down.

Brisbane: Themed Adventure Game

4. Brisbane: Themed Adventure Game

Be immersed in the story of the Brisbane Burglar as you take part in an adventure game starting and finishing at Reddacliff Place in Brisbane's CBD. Have up to two hours to complete the case with your team collecting points for every correct answer from challenges, riddles and eventually guessing the Brisbane Burglar's identity. Detective Watson will provide a case briefing and hand out the essentials to solve the case; a detective bag, gamebook, and map. It's not always the fasted team that wins, have you been paying attention along the way? Your gamebook continues on from your case briefing, introducing you to the suspects and providing riddles to guide you to your first challenge. The challenges are hands-on activities using the tools in your detective bag and the local buildings to help build an evidential case. Write your answers on the provided sheet and debate among your team who you think the Brisbane Burglar is. Once you have all the answers, make your way back to the Detective to see how well you went.

What people are saying about Brisbane

Would recommend the Story Bridge Adventure climb to any one. We found the climb easy with regular stops along the way for points of interest and photos. Our guide was very well versed and made everyone feel at ease and praised each one for achieving the climb. My husband is 78 and managed the climb very well.

Great way to spend the afternoon - as a local to gain a new perspective of our city and the bridge we drive across every day, or as a visitor wanting to see Brisbane from the best possible vantage point.

Fantastic experience well worth it if you get a chance. Staff lovely and very knowledgable.
