The adventure begins at our Climb base camp, directly under the Story Bridge itself. After a quick pre-climb brief, you’ll depart our base and ascend a spiral staircase that leads to the start of our suspended walkway directly beneath the Bradfield Highway (Australia’s shortest Highway).
From here you’re connected to our climb line for the entire climb and you’ll start the journey along the suspended walkway to the base of the southern pylon, learning about the colourful history of the Story Bridge and Brisbane.
By now you should have warmed up – because it’s climb time! Start the climb up through the inner Eastern bridge arm, climbing level with one of Brisbane’s busiest commute points and then ascending straight up the south-eastern cantilever arm that stretches over the Brisbane River and reaches up into the sky. Before you know it you’re celebrating with your climb group on the summit platform, where you’ll get your bearings and some fun facts about the amazing 360 panoramic before you.
From the Eastern side of the top platform, you’ll transfer over to the Western side and enjoy sweeping views of Brisbane’s ever-changing cityscape before your descent down to the Southern Pylon Abseil platform. From there let our experienced abseil guides help you to conquer your fears and guide you safely off the bridge and down the 27m southern pylon of the iconic Story Bridge itself.
Every Climb to the top includes a Climb group photograph, with additional individual photographs available for purchase.
