Under or over it a historical part of Brisbane. Daughter did the bridge climb and said it was wonderful. Used to be the main road to coast coming from thee North now we have alternative bypasses.

It is heritage-listed and the longest steel cantilever bridge (It spans the Brisbane River) in Australia. This bridge was opened on July 6, 1940 and was a toll bridge until 1947. It... More

Decent venue, drinks are well priced and crowd is decent. Had an incident where I was racially profiled by the manager in front of a group of 12 witnesses and issued with a dismissive/hushed apology. The company didn't even respond to my complaint.

Got the chicken schnitzel with mushroom sauce, chips n beans. The schnitzel was tasty and a reasonable size. Everything else looked like it belonged on a kids plate. The mushroom sauce was about 1 table spoon over a big schnitzel and didn't cover anything and when I asked for more- they charged me $2.50!!!! I couldn't believe it. At $23... More

We went under the Story Bridge on the free City Hopper Ferry. We learned the history of the bridge when we visited the Brisbane Museum. It is the longest cantilevered bridge in all of Australia. It is an impressive looking bridge.

Walked over the bridge from Fortitude Valley and into town. There's some great views when you cross the bridge of many of the cities high rises and some of the parks along the river. Its pretty busy with traffic but a good wide path keeps you safe. It's the first place iv'e seen emergency telephones for people who may bee... More

While the Story Bridge is synonymous for many with Brisbane, in itself it's a fairly unremarkable cantilever bridge.
