See Brisbane from a whole new perspective!
You leave SBAC headquarters and then creep beneath the bridge and traffic on a suspended
walkway to the platform called 'the halfway house'. Here you'll start to learn about the
colourful history of the Story Bridge's construction and what an epic engineering feat it was.
You'll also be told about the history of Brisbane and learn things many Brisbane residents don't know.
Then, it's time to ascend through road level, with traffic whooshing past, onto the anchor arm on the eastern side of the bridge. This is the steepest part of the climb as you rise surprisingly quickly, to have Brisbane, the river and the surrounding countryside laid out before you in all its glory! Once you reach the top (at 80 metres above sea level) you will feel as though you are part of the skyline. Skyscrapers glint all around you, traffic rushes below and the patchwork of the city stretches into the distant mountains.
From the eastern summit, the route gradually descends along the eastern cantilever arm towards the central platform.
The central platform allows you to cross to the other side of the bridge over six lanes of traffic. Once on the western cantilever arm, climbers begin the gradual ascent to the western, or city side, of the viewing platform for another opportunity to take in the panorama.
It's now time to head back down to earth via the western anchor arm through the road deck to the halfway house and back to base headquarters where you can purchase photographs and Story Bridge Adventure Climb Merchandise.
