Scale to the top of Brisbane’s iconic Story Bridge to see the city and surrounds from a spectacular 360 degrees and now you can come back to earth in style with our new Abseil climb. If you thought you’d seen everything Brisbane has to offer, think again.
Based at Kangaroo Point, Story Bridge Adventure climb is one of only three such experiences in the world and with our new Abseil Climb it is the only! experience of its kind in the world, no other bridge climb can offer you this opportunity.
After a 30 minute safety briefing you will make your way to the 80 metre summit of the Story Bridge to enjoy uninterrupted 360 degree views of Brisbane and its surrounds. The picturesque Glasshouse Mountains are visible to the north with the world-heritage-listed Lamington National Park to the south. To the east enjoy views across Moreton Bay to some of the world’s largest sand islands, and to the west find Mt Coot-tha and the lush Brisbane Forest Park. Then from the summit you will make your way down the western anchor arm to just below road level for the Abseil preparation and then zip down the Anchor Pier into Captain Burke Park - about 30 metres below. Who needs stairs when you’ve got ropes and pulley’s. You will then be escorted back to base.
Abseil Climbs are led by an experienced climb leader and take approximately 2.5-3 hours to complete, which includes a safety briefing, suiting up for the Abseil Climb. Please note you will be given a blood alcohol test for safety reasons, so no pre-drinks!
