A world-exclusive climbing adventure is now yours to experience with the launch of two new thrill-seeker activities at the iconic Story Bridge this January 2020.

Tourism Industry Development Minister Kate Jones has announced that XBrisbane, the company that operates the bridge walks, is now offering the Walk the Plank and Cantilever adventure experiences. 

Walk the Plank,  XBrisbane principal John Sharpe described, is a one-metre plank that offers thrill seekers a “heart-stopping chance to walk out over the traffic 40 metres below.” The Cantilever, on the other hand, offers an experience of “weightless feeling of falling whilst being totally safe in a harness-and-suspension safety system.”

These offerings are just the start of more attractions to be offered soon to those looking for additional thrills at the Story Bridge.

“New experiences will grow our tourism industry and create local jobs. These new attractions will position the Story Bridge as Australia’s number one bridge adventure precinct,” Ms Jones said.

Ms Jones added that the new attractions at the Story Bridge aim to attract an extra 45,800 tourists a year and generate an extra $3 million for local businesses. The State Government recently confirmed it will provide funding to support new attractions on the Story Bridge through its $36 million Growing Tourism Infrastructure fund.

Mr Sharpe said that the Sydney Harbour Bridge is “tired and old – their offering hasn’t changed in decades.” This major upgrade, he said, will make sure that thrill-seekers around the world will have the Story Bridge at the forefront of their mind.

“These adventure activities are not for the faint-hearted, but any true Queenslander will want to give it a crack,” he said.
