The capital city of Queensland, Brisbane, is the third most populated city in Australia and has no shortage of the number of places to see. From the panoramic skyline of the city from Kangaroo point, the Wheel of Brisbane, the idyllic Gorge Walk on North Stradbroke Island, the breathtaking St John’s Cathedral and the iconic Story Bridge, the city of Brisbane never bores. Given the ability to access the famed Gold Coast from the capital of Queensland, holiday apartments Brisbane are always in demand and therefore, should be booked in advance.
Exploring Brisbane is a true treat and one of the most iconic activities many tourists indulge in is to see and climb Story Bridge. Located a couple of kilometres away from Oaks Festival Towers, a brisk walk will have you taking in the breathtaking and stunning sight of the bridge providing the adventurous few with the opportunity of a bird’s eye view of Brisbane. Opened in 1940, the Bridge was named after John Douglas Story, a well known public officer at the time, and has been listed in the Queensland Heritage Register since 1992.
Climbing the Story Bridge has therefore, become an activity that many tourists hope to tell stories of for years to come. By booking a climb, patrons will have the opportunity to quiz the guides about the little details surrounding the construction and operation of the Bridge. The experience is thought to be so marvellous that many even choose to gift a climb to their loved ones. Given the height of the structure, the view from the summit is truly awe-inspiring. The view extends from the sparkling waters of the Brisbane River, across the skyscrapers of the city, to the Moreton Bay as well as the lush green mountains of Scenic Rim. Those interested can choose from a variety of packages and times as the Climb takes place during day and night as well as dawn and twilight.
