Description

Brisbane's must do experience, Story Bridge Adventure Climb! - a truly unique and memorable adventure for all levels of fitness and age (minimum 10 years old).

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.

The two and a half hour experience includes a unique journey up over the bridge's superstructure to the 80 metre summit which provides magnificent uninterrupted 360 degree views of Brisbane City, the river, mountain ranges and Moreton Bay Islands. One of only three such experiences in the world, the Story Bridge Adventure Climb also provides fascinating commentary from an experienced climb leader about the history and heritage of both the bridge and city surrounding them.

They now offer another choice of climb with Abseil Climb. Not only can you climb the bridge, you can elect to abseil down one of its pylons into Captain Burke Park at its base.

General Comments

Peak climb times are dawn, twilight and weekends.
Day Tours: No better way to spend a leisurely morning or afternoon as your leader identifies the city's landmarks. Take in the 360 degree view from Moreton Bay and Islands to the Glasshouse Mountains west to Mount Coot-Tha and south to Lamington National Park.

Twilight Tours: See the setting sun light up the glass and steel of the city's high-rise. Watch as Brisbane's perennially blue skies finally give way to the coming night. Follow the snakes of light created by the rush hour traffic.
Night Tours: With the bridge and the city now fully lit, marvel at the reflections captured in the glassy, black surface of the river.
Abseil Tours: Add some extra adventure with your morning climb and abseil 30 metres down the anchor pier.
Please refer to the operator's website for more information.

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. To the west find Mount 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.

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.

Story Bridge Adventure Climb

Twilight Climb

From base headquarters make your way to the halfway house where the commentary begins. The route then ascends through the road level onto the anchor arm on the eastern side of the bridge. Here the incline is at its greatest as you make your way to one of the two high points of the climb to enjoy the 360 degree uninterrupted view, approximately 80 metres above sea level. Gradually descend to the central platform and begin the ascent to the western summit top platform to enjoy more views. Once back at headquarters, be sure to visit the Merchandise area. They offer Dawn, Day, Twilight and Night Climbs.

Abseil Climb

Abseil Climb

They are taking things to the next level with their Abseil Climb!

After you have climbed to the 80 metre summit and enjoyed the uninterrupted 360 degree views, what goes up must come down and now you can come back to earth in style. Who needs stairs when you have got ropes and pulleys. From the summit you will make your way down the western anchor arm to just below road level for the Abseil preparation and then Abseil down the anchor pier into Captain Burke Park - about 30 metres below and then be escorted back to base. This is the only experience of its kind in the world.
