    Night time is best!
    We like exploring new areas by walking so we walked across. We got off the ferry at Holman st and it was a bit of a walk to get onto the bridge. Easier from the other side. It’s a very busy bridge- traffic noise and lots of bikes, scooters, walkers. At night the lights are pretty and best viewed by ferry or sitting at Howard smith wharves with a glass of wine.

    Iconic City Bridge
    Everyone talks about the views from the Story Bridge, and rightly so as they are wonderful. But what we like dmost was looking AT the bridge, not looking FROM it. What I mean is, grab a seat at one of the Howard Smith Wharf bars and watch the sun go down behind the glass of the skyscrapers and the colours of the Story Bridge as it lights up in the twlight. It is just magnificent.

    Heritage listed cantilever bridge
    We crossed it in a taxi and sailed under a few times with ferry services. Probably more impressive from the river with its cantilever construction and piers at each end although only was required at the North end as the structure could be anchored to the cliff face. The South end piers were challenging to construct to a depth of 40m below water levels and required the installation of caissons. A feat of construction in the late 1930's with an overall length of 777m and a height of 30m above water. It was Heritage listed in 1992 and included as a Queensland icon 2009 during the celebrations of Q150, the sesquicentenary of the Separation of Queensland from New South Wales in 1859

Have an evening walk on the bridge, and return, about 30 mins in total. Stay for the night to see the lightup of the bridge.

Overall a nice time. But sloooow and anticlimactic. The experience is packed with alot of history told by the guide and very little wow factor. If you'll also be in Sydney, I recommend waiting to climb that bridge. And sooooo many pictures were taken of each group, which very few people actually purchased. We stood around more than we ventured.

We crossed this on our mammoth Brisbane centre walk, the views are great as is the structure. Looking back towards the city gives super perspective

It makes for a decent view in the evening. I wouldn't call it an attraction though, it wouldn't be worth walking all the way there if you weren't in the area.

My two sons and I completed the Story Bridge Adventure Climb. We were able to enjoy the fantastic urban setting of the beautiful winding Brisbane River.

Well, you can't really miss this bridge, which is an iconic feature and landmark of Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland. I stay in a hotel close by and walked down to the nice walkways by the river to get some good views of the total span of this bridge. Apparently, it is the longest cantilever bridge in Australia.

If I'd had more time in the city, I would have liked to walk across it, either conventionally at road level or make the climb (at a cost).
