We had a good view of the storey bridge from the 71st floor of the meriton apartments in Adelaide street - their lighting display at night is beautiful. Recommend going for a walk along the boardwalk alongside the river from Eagle street over the bridge to Kangaroo Point

We actually walked from Eagle St pier to the story bridge, then walked on the bridge across to Kangaroo Point cliffs and then walked along the river path to Southbank Parklands. We started our walk in late afternoon and by the time we reached Southbank, it was already night. We were rewarded with fantastic and awesome views of both sides... More

Recognised all around the world - built 75 years ago, it commands the city skyline & lovely to see at night with the changing light show.

Living not far from Sydney it would be easy to think that no other bridges in Australia rate when compared with the Sydney Harbour Bridge however I was really impressed with the Story Bridge. It is a great looking bridge and at night it is lit up in different colours which reflect onto the river (see attached photo) which looks... More

Take the night kayak tour and see this beautiful bridge lit up with gorgeous lights. It is perfect for a date night or a night out with the family.

You can walk under around and over this bridge. I like the parklands walks under it with the coffee shops and under cliff views. The bridge climb is not quite Sydney Harbour but good enough. Great month for Jacaranda spotting.

I would recommend visitors to stay at a hotel overlooking the bridge, preferably with a balcony (for instance, Oaks Aurora). Perfect for a great night in! And you will never get bored with the view, as the colours keep changing. Magical!

Brisbane story bridge is gorgeous. Looks like it was made from a big mocano set. Views to the bridge are often a highlight of well sited Brisbane city restaurants and add a peaceful element to dining.
