Masterclass Brisbane Location
Drive down Main Street, Kangaroo Point and then at the end under the Story Bridge, turn left into Holman Street and find parking spot. We meet over to the left in the picnic shelters so that we are directly across the Brisbane River from the Customs House. This spot gives us spectacular views of the City reaches of the river and also a great position to photograph the Story Bridge by night.
