Story Bridge light colours

You may have noticed Brisbane's iconic landmark the Story Bridge illuminated with different colours each night. Typically each lighting display on the bridge is to commemorate a special day in history, raise awareness for charities and showcase upcoming events. Some past displays have been in support of Christmas, Cancer Council Queensland’s Daffodil Day, Braveheart’s White Balloon Day and New Year’s Eve.

Story Bridge

For a prime viewing position of the beautiful lights head to one of the Eagle Street Pier restaurants or bars. Or if you would prefer to stake out a casual spot along the river bring along your own chair and picnic rug to Captain Burke Park or the cliffs at Kangaroo Point or Wilson's Outlook in New Farm.

Brisbane City Council coordinates the colours, and you can find out which colour is next and why here.
