Walk This Way


This is the walkway on the city side of the iconic Story Bridge linking the CBD and Fortitude Valley with Kangaroo Point. Walking across here is just brilliant because it spans the river at a sharp bend so you are walking parallel with the riverside buildings. The view of the city is luxuriously lofty but I think the bridge itself is great to look at close-up too.

It was opened in 1940, is 777 metres (2549ft) long and has a clearance of 30 metres (100ft) from the Brisbane River below.

I like this one. Easy to get a feel for the size of the bridge looking at the original size.

Good shot. I like the shadows at that time of day.

It's the light that grabs me and those tones. Superb.

Shadows make this work. Nice place to jog but not for me I'm scared of heigths.

Better than our poor SHB with its barbed wire from end to end obstructing the view - trying to ensure the crazies dont jump off - which they still do.
