On Thursday, the 6th of February, we’re in for a treat! – Experience the Fireworks on the Brisbane River with the best seats in town. Close up on the summit of the Story Bridge. This is a very rare event normally only reserved for NYE however this year there is another set of fireworks up close and personal on Friday the 6th of February. This will be the ultimate Story Bridge climb.
The Fireworks show will begin at 9pm. The Fireworks Night Climb will begin at 8pm to ensure we are all up on top platform with plenty of time to get ready to spectacle of a lifetime.
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
