Brisbane’s Storied Bridge

By Linda Tancs

Dozens of bridges worldwide have a storied past, an iconic status treasured by locals and tourists alike.  Indeed, every bridge tells a story, which is why it’s so fitting and natural that Brisbane should name its cantilever bridge–what else–Story Bridge.  Spanning the Brisbane River, Story Bridge is the largest steel bridge designed, fabricated and constructed in Australia by Australians, a product of the Great Depression providing years of much needed employment.  You can view the landscape like one of those bridge workers with a bridge climb.  Choose from a traditional bridge climb, an abseil climb or a photographic climb.  In any case, you’re sure to have a story to tell.
