Story Bridge Brisbane

I am staying at the Meriton Adelaide Street Apartments which offers a partial view of the Story bridge from one window and a view down to Riverside Wharf and Eagle Pier. From here I have also walked the Riverview Boardwalk as far as New Farm and the Sugar Refinary Apartments.

The Story Bridge is a heritage-listed steel cantilever bridge spanning the Brisbane River that carries vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian traffic between the northern and the southern suburbs of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. It is the longest cantilever bridge in Australia.

The bridge is part of Bradfield Highway (15) and connects Fortitude Valley to Kangaroo Point. The Story Bridge opened in 1940 and was tolled until 1947. It is named after prominent public servant, John Douglas Story.

Last night I walked to Sydney Street Wharf and took the Red Hopper which is free, back and rode the river for the sunset and back to Eagle Pier for dinner at the Mexican Restaurant and walked back along Eagle Street.
