    Brisbane had been flooded so marks were clearly seen where the water levels had been and people still cleaning up. Wasn't as bad as I expected.

    We had viewed the bridge from Southbank and the Botanical Gardens, we had sailed beneath on the River Cruise, City Cat and City Hopper. Finally on 31/10/21, after visiting the Maritime Museum, we decided to walk the 450m across to Gardens Point. It is a shared pedestrian cycleway bridge with clear delineation for both. It was erected in 2001 and named for the Goodwill Games that were held in Brisbane that year. I consider the architectural design to be eye-catching, there are shaded areas, seating, and a coffee kiosk (not open on the day due to windy conditions) Great views and gave us a different perspective when looking at things from above.

    A bridge for walking people and bikers. The design looks eccentric that could easily catch your imagination. A quick way to cross the river between the Southbank and the City.

    The abutment was part of the 4th bridge to be constructed at this location and includes a podium with arch above. The abutment was really a remnant of the bridge which was demolished in 1969 and was not restored to its present state until preparations for Expo'88 were in hand. It was heritage listed in 1992.

    A must do, see huge trees beneath you, a unique view of the Brisbane River, walking one side, cycling the other, buses in the middle. Have welcome swallows flit beside you as you walk high above the river on this magnificent bridge. See a building in the city being built with a crane from here.... For bird watchers read on..... The structure of the bridge is very appealing, well designed except you can't get a good view of the south side of the river from the walking area. See many pontoons, city cats pulling in and drifting off, tour boats, a beautiful view. For bird watchers continue over the bridge onto the western end into UQ to the large ponds, small lakes, we saw a tern flying overhead, a pelican resting in the middle and one landing using his giant feet to aquaplane beautifully, very large unidentifiable black ducks with iridescent green heads, also a very large white duck, Eurasian coots, dusky moorhens, pacific black ducks, magpie larks, maned wood ducks, masked plovers, an entire flock of Corella parrots, all in one tree, blue billed duck, two brush turkeys, noisy miners, purple swamp hens and an egret, not bad for being so close to the city!

    We crossed this bride on a number of occasions by taxi and also had the view from underneath from the City Cat. The bridge dates to 1932 and is heritage listed. Called the Grey Street bridge initially, it had a name change in 1955 to honour the first Lord Mayor of Brisbane. The design is concrete-encased steel with three arched ribs which rise through the deck on both sides. Interesting history to read. Unfortunately for Brisbane, the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge predated the opening the Kent Street Bridge by eleven days; - one upmanship between both States apparently existed in 1932.

    Our river cruise skipper gave us some interesting information about this bridge. I doubt that you would call it an attraction but each to their own. The bridge was completed in 1972 and opened for traffic in 1973 and is a vehicular only bridge. It links the Pacific Motorway between South Brisbane/Kangaroo Point and Gardens Point.
    The bridge is described as "a multi–span, precast prestressed concrete free-cantilever bridge with drop-in mid-spans and comprises two separate carriageways each with four traffic lanes". Solid and impressive when viewed from a boat deck.
