redballoon experiences -- story bridge climb brisbane

We both agreed, it was up there with one of our best dates.  At dusk on Saturday, the husband and I climbed the Brisbane Story Bridge before heading out to the stunning views of Mt Cootha for dinner.

Climbing the bridge was a wonderful experience!  And thanks to RedBalloon, I’ll be doing more fun stuff like this over the next 6 months, so stay tuned! I love the adventure of it!

The Climb

The Story Bridge Climb in Brisbane is one of 3 in the world! The climb was meticulously organised, and our guide Caleb, was professional, fun and knowledgeable. It was an easy climb and I felt safe (just a little shaky for the first little bit as I got used to the height).  The 360° view at the top was stunning, stretching out across the city lights to Moreton Island, the Glasshouse Mountains, Flinders Peak and Mt Barney.  A fabulous experience for both locals and tourists.

The Date

My husband and I grew up in Brisbane, met in Brisbane, fell in love in Brisbane, and had our wedding reception in Brisbane, so it was special to revisit many of the places from above, that hold significance to our relationship.  Once the jitters left, we both found ourselves feeling strangely calm and quiet.   It was a special experience to share with each other, and it was so fun to go on an out of the ordinary date. Just what we needed; just like a mini holiday.

What the husband said: I was really impressed by the professional way in the organisation was run. All the equipment was well maintained, and the tour guide was excellent.  I enjoyed it, even more than I expected! There was something very calming about being on top of the bridge; it felt like I was away from it all. Very refreshing!

Well for my husband – called superdad by some close friends – I would love for him to either have a half day of kayaking in the Sunshine Coast or really surprise him with a hot air balloon ride over Byron Bay. I’ve been unwell and he’s been so good at helping out with our kids and looking after me! Thanks Dave!

V8 HotLap or a Joyflight in a Triwing over the Sunshine coast. Hubby is a fab father to our princess and a wonderful hubby to me, engaged we knew kids where a priority for us then I had my first stroke they said we could try but no gurentees 2nd stroke was 7 days after princess was born 3rd was a year late (6 years now with no more thankgoodness). Last year lost the left overy to precancer cells now waiting on surgery to have the right removed as more precancer cells where found there last week … upshot we have one beautiful gift of a daughter and a very loving daddy/hubby. Would so love to give him this as a thankyou for everything he does for me and his unwavering support.
