See Brisbane from the top of the Story Bridge.

The Story Bridge Adventure Climb is a unique way and exciting way to see Brisbane's sights.

The climb sees you walk almost a kilometre of the bridge's superstructure and peaks at the viewing platform at the summit of the bridge. This is 80 metres above the Brisbane River and provides panoramic views of the city. You don't need experience to be able to climb and it's safe for children 10+ to join in the fun. You'll be given a full safety briefing and equipment prior to your climb and a guide will lead you to the summit and back, with commentary.
