 STORY BRIDGE CLIMB, BRISBANE

Are you planning a trip to Queensland and looking to do the Story Bridge Climb, Brisbane? This is a unique adventure activity, offering views over Brisbane River and the city’s skyline. On a good day, views even extend out to the Glasshouse Mountains and Kangaroo Point. The Story Bridge adventure climb is a must do, when visiting this city.

 

THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT THE STORY BRIDGE

The Story Bridge stands at around 74 metres high is at least 50 metres shorter than the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The same engineer designed both the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Brisbane’s Story Bridge. It is also one of three bridge climbs in the world, with Sydney Harbour and Auckland bridge the other two.

History of the Story Bridge began back in 1935, when building of the bridge initially began. Construction took 5 years, and in July 1940, the bridge opened for operation.

STORY BRIDGE ADVENTURE CLIMB

There are a number of options when it comes to your Story Bridge Adventure. Choose from the day climb, dawn climb, twilight climb, or if you’re feeling a little more adventurous, then why not try the Cantilever lean out or the climb and abseil. Other options include private climbs or climbs for special occasions, such as birthdays.

While it has been a number of years since my climb, I chose to make the ascend during twilight. This experience begins as the day ends, so it’s a good opportunity to watch the sun set and slowly see Brisbane city come alive at night.

Prior to the climb, you’ll receive an informative pre-climb brief, along with some fancy outfits to wear.  The duration of the climb runs for about 2 hours and in my experience, it was well guided and safe. I loved the feeling of walking up towards the sky, as well as admiring the views of Brisbane River. At the top, there will be opportunities for photos, which can also be purchased.

Below are the photos that I purchased during my climb (these are scanned images of the originals).  I highly recommend this experience to anyone seeking adventure in Brisbane.
