The Victoria Bridge is a vehicular and pedestrian bridge over the Brisbane River. The current bridge, opened in 1969, is the third permanent crossing erected at this location. Since 24 January 2021, the bridge was closed to general traffic and carried buses, pedestrians and cyclists only.
The Victoria Bridge, the Brisbane River's first road crossing has had a long and interesting history. Since 1865 there have been several versions of the bridge built to connect South Brisbane (near the South Bank Parklands and Queensland Cultural Centre) to the Brisbane central business district (CBD) at North Quay. Half of the road space on the bridge is now given over to the South-East Busway. In the 2006 Brisbane City Centre Draft Masterplan, a new crossing immediately adjacent to the Victoria Bridge, tentatively named the Adelaide Street Bridge was recommended for a feasibility study.

This bridge is not particularly pictaresque in and of itself, but it is a great place to take photos of the city skyline. It is a perfect spot to observe the Wheel of Brisbane.

Beautiful place to take pictures. You can see all skyscrapers around there. The bridge connects the city centre with the south bank

One of the few pedestrian and car bridges in Brisbane to get you over the river.. bridge connects the Brisbane CDB to South bank. The bridge will give any photographer a great vantage point for pictures of the Brisbane river, South Bank and the CBD. On the south side of the bridge it has a major bus interchange.

Best time to Walk around in the night. Great views from Brisbane river side. Also can be viewed at night from Queensland performing arts centre.
