The Story Bridge crosses the Brisbane River from Kangaroo Point to Fortitude Valley. It was designed by John Bradfield who was responsible for the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Building commenced in July 1935 and the bridge opened in July 1940. It is 1,072 metres long and it is repainted every 7 years.
It is quite impressive.
The city centre looks good from the bridge.
There is an excellent walking path around the river in front of the city to the bridge, also offering excellent views.
I wonder if they caught any fish.
It is also possible to walk to the top of the bridge. You can see the steps in the photo below.
If you are in Brisbane take the time to walk across, or to the top of the Story Bridge.
I also took a ride on the City Cat in my quest to photograph the Story Bridge. A little bird came too.
It was a beautiful winter day on the Brisbane River.
From here we went under the bridge.
I spotted a man who had decided not to use the bridge. The photo is taken into the sun, so please excuse the quality, but I knew you would want to see this.
He is not really walking on water, there is a surfboard and a paddle there. It looks like hard work to me. I think I will use the bridge.
