“Not quite as good as Sydney but still loved it”
Reviewed 26 May 2012

Having climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge a couple of years ago and loved it we were very keen to climb our own Story Bridge and compare the experiences.

The view from the top was fantastic - right on sunset on a clear day we were able to see all the way to the Glasshouse Mountains to the north. As the bridge is not as high as Sydney you are a lot closer to the traffic and the actual climb in Brisbane seemed a little steeper.

A great experience - although even being from Brisbane we had to admit that the view in Sydney is a bit better because their harbour is so majestic. Would definitely recommend this though to locals and visitors alike - one of the best things to do in Qld. The price also compares very favourably with Sydney - we paid about half of what we did down there. Staff were all very friendly, booking process was easy and the souvenir photos were pretty reasonably priced.

Reviewed 9 May 2012

Someone gave me this climb as a present, it was a fun thing to do with friends. Beware if you're scared of heights.

“The Storey bridge Climb is a must...”
Reviewed 6 May 2012

Do the 4.40pm tour. It is the last one of the day & you get to take in the sights as the city lights come alive. The walk is pretty easy. It is fairly steep at times but not uncomfortable. You cannot take a camera up with you but there are 3 photo opportunities where the guide takes some snaps & you can purchase them afterwards. A person of any age could do the climb if they walk on a regular basis & have no knee or hips problems. Anybody with knee or hip problems would most likely find it difficult even though the pace is leisurely; there is simply a lot of stairs to walk up & down. If your visiting Brisbane, make room in your budget to do this climb, you won't be disappointed!
