The Story Bridge


Our beautiful Story Bridge at night.

Interesting Facts:

The Story Bridge is an iconic Brisbane landmark and connects The Valley to Kangaroo Point. Construction of the bridge began in 1935 and it was opened in 1940.  It is named after a prominent public servant, John Douglas Story.

It was recently fitted with LED lighting which are brighter, easier to maintain and use less energy. The colours change weekly and “include a wider range of colours and dynamic lighting options that have been on show in blue to mark the recent royal birth, in red, white and blue to welcome sailors from the USS George Washington, and other hues for charitable groups such as Blue Care and Hannah’s Choice”.  The new lights will produce virtually any colour.
