Story Bridge

With dazzling lights, which reflect along the length of the Brisbane River, the Story Bridge is impressive by day and spectacular at night. The steel cantilever bridge, which is listed on the Queensland Heritage Register, spans from Fortitude Valley to Kangaroo Point, connecting the city’s north and south. After opening in 1940, it became the longest structure of its kind in Australia, carrying vehicular, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic. As one of only three of the world’s bridges that can be climbed, Story Bridge Adventure Climb offers an unforgettable experience, allowing you to reach the top of the structure and witness incredible views of the city and beyond.

Queensland Cultural Centre

Positioned along the banks of the Brisbane River is the Queensland Cultural Centre, and at the heart of this thriving precinct is the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art. Discover the rotating roster of world-exclusive art exhibitions and unique permanent pieces across the two galleries. Continue your exploration with a trip to the Science Museum to challenge your mind or Queensland Performing Arts Centre to enjoy one of Brisbane’s renowned stage shows.

Mount Coot-Tha

Before hiking up Brisbane’s tallest mountain, be sure to visit the city’s botanic gardens at the foot of Mount Coot-Tha. A sensory symphony, the wildlife oasis boasts 52 hectares (ha) of plants from Australia and around the world. The climb to the top of the mountain takes around 90 minutes to complete, however, you will be rewarded with a stunning view of the city skyline and can treat yourself to a coffee or a light bite from the Summit Café.
