Story Bridge Adventure Climb

A two and a half hour adventure climb to the very top of Brisbane’s iconic Story Bridge – open to the public for the first time in its 65 year history. One of only three such experiences in the world, it’s a journey of almost a kilometre up over the bridge’s superstructure with a high point almost 80 metres above the Brisbane River.

From the summit of the bridge, climbers enjoy uninterrupted 360 degree views of Brisbane, its river and surrounding mountains.

The picturesque Glasshouse Mountains are visible to the north with the world-heritage listed Lamington National Park to the south. To the east enjoy views across Moreton Bay to some of the world’s largest sand islands, and to the west find Mt Coot-tha and the lush Brisbane Forest Park. Looking down you’ll see the Brisbane River snaking its way to the Pacific Ocean.

At the same time, climbers can eyeball the city’s tallest buildings. Dawn climbers will capture the beauty of sunrise over the bay, while dusk climbers will see the setting sun reflected in the glass and steel of the city’s high-rise apartment and office buildings, and the city lights.

For those with a fear of heights, relax! Every precaution has been taken in the safety procedures to ensure that the adventure climb experience is safe. For the entire duration of the climb, climbers are attached to a static line with experienced Climb Leaders ready to support and encourage those who are a little anxious.

The Story Bridge Adventure Climb is a soft adventure experience with a difference and the most spectacular way to discover Brisbane. Whether you’re a local or a visitor, you’ll be exhilarated by a once in a lifetime experience that offers you the most breathtaking panorama of Brisbane and its surrounding natural beauty.
