Story Bridge, New Farm Reviews - Write a Review

  • Obviously not too comparable with ones like the Golden gate or Sydney harbor bridges, but still not a bad item to check off the to-do list when visiting. Great views of the river, and nice little eateries at the foot of the bridge as well.

  • Very beautiful bridge. Dan over view the city on the side walk. Also connected to New Farm Walk path. You can spend a relaxing afternoon just walking between New Farm, Kangaroo Point, and the city.

  • Kudos to the Brisbane City Council for their 'Light Up Brisbane' initiative. The iconic Story bridge is used nightly to promote charities and events in the city by changing colour to reflect different themes. The LED lighting is capable of producing practically any colour, making the bridge a favourite for local photographers. Building started on the bridge in May 1935, and construction was completed 1940. Linking Fortitude Valley with Kangaroo Point, this bridge is heavily used for commuters every day. With the Story bridge able to be viewed from all around the city, from New Farm to the Gardens Point botanic gardens on the northside of the river, and from Mowbray park to Captain Bourke park on the south, there are plenty of places for photographers get a shot of this iconic bridge. Do yourself a favour and make a trip into the city to see what colour it is tonight!
