Story Bridge Adventure Climb
Standing on the Story Bridge with Brisbane under your feet, gives one a heady feeling. The view will send even the strongest of hearts aflutter. After 65 long years, the bridge was finally thrown open to the public, and Story Bridge Adventure Climbers now offer a top-level experience to locals and visitors. Safe and affordable, their climb covers the southern half of the bridge, and takes about two and a half hours from start to finish. As you progress upwards you can't help but marvel at the structure which took 12000 tonnes of steel and four lives during construction.
I thought it would just be a straight walk up and down. But, we got a great safety briefing that helped calm my fear of heights. We had special suits and a harness. I enjoyed learning about the facts of BRisbane and history of the bridge - and the climb tour guide was a laugh. The views at the top were amazing as we had a fabulous sunset climb. Overall great value for money and we will take up our friends and visitors in the future.
I love Brisbane, it's a love that's grown since I've travelled the world and can compare it to many other places. I decided to do the climb even though I am a local. It was very disappointing. Slow, boring and a complete over-emphasis on 'safety' YAWN. Too expensive for what you get. In the end I couldn't wait to get off the bridge and get home. The teenage 'guides' were surprisingly lacking in character and enthusiasm. Our enthusiasm was sucked from us as a result, and trust me, we are very fun loving. Boring, and waste of money.
The bridge has just been opened to the public for guided climbs. It is an awesome experience, not for people with vertigo or weak hearts!
The view is second to none. You are safely harnessed to guide cable and its like climbing a really huge staircase.
Take the climb - take a camera.
