See in the New Year from the best seats in the city – on top of the Story Bridge itself!

This year we’re offering 2 unique climb times.

The 6.30pm climb gets all climbers up in time for the earlier 8.30pm Fireworks spectacular along with a toast to 2019 at the top and some summit entertainment.

For those wanting to countdown Happy New Year from the top we’ve got you covered with our inaugural NYE Countdown Climb, departing from our base at 10.00pm you’ll have pole position for the midnight fireworks extravaganza.

NYE climbs include:

  • A Story Bridge Adventure Night Climb.
  • Views of both Brisbane CBD and Southbank fireworks.
  • A toast at the top (and one on return)!
  • Bridge summit entertainment along with prizes and giveaways.
  • Photography package

Downtown Adventure

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.

From this point, 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 halfway 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.
