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.

What people are saying about Brisbane

We had Rio as our tour guide and he was amazing. The tour was so worth it. Brown Lake is a natural delight, Cylinder beach is beautiful (I recommend BYO lunch as we had to wait a long time for our lunch here) and the walk at point lookout was fabulous. Highly recommend for an accesible and not exhausting day trip.

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.

It was an amazing experience.. Rio was very professional, knowledgeable and accommodating... although all the locations were breathtaking, my favourite parts was the brown lake and the lookout point. The views were simply stunning!!! I'm so glad I took this tour

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

Friendly, knowledgeable ultra safe guides. Great climb.
