Celebrate the Bridge To Brisbane From Atop The Story Bridge
BRIDGE TO BRISBANE CELEBRATION CLIMB
On Sunday morning, the 25th of July, we’re in for a treat! – The normally busy Story Bridge is being shut down so that a sea of over 30,000 runners can participate in the annual Bridge To Brisbane Fun Run. Whether you are supporting a friend or family member or if you simply want the best view in Brisbane for the event, book in your tickets now as we can only have limited climber on the bridge. Story Bridge Adventure Climb is also getting into the spirit by donating $10 from every Celebration Climb ticket to the Courier Mail Childrens’ Fund.
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.
Venturing further along you’ll explore the bridge from a different angle, travelling approximately half way across the river below before returning to the top platform for a final climb group photo before your descent back to our Climb base camp.
Every Climb to the top includes a Climb group photograph, with additional individual photographs available for purchase.
Duration: 2 hours Group size: 14 (max) Steps: 1,138
