The Story Bridge is a steel cantilever bridge that crosses over the Brisbane River and allows motor vehicles and pedestrians to travel across. The bridge is 777 metres in total length, 24 metres wide and 74 metres high. The bridge operates three traffic lanes in each direction and offers a walking and cycle way that stretches along each side.
The bridge design is unique and was adapted from the Jacques Cartier Bridge in Montreal. The cantilever design makes it not only a great roadway to travel upon but provides photography opportunities to capture a highly unique construction.
Aside from vehicle travel, the bridge operates as a recreational hotspot for walks and hikes. Limited self-guided walks are available to the top of the bridge and locals are often seen during nice weather trekking to the top. The Story Bridge Adventure Climb is a major attraction among locals and tourists each year. The climb has been in commencement since 2005.
