Goannas under the Story Bridge

Monitor Lizard, Howard Smith WharvesAt the northern end of the Story Bridge, beneath the New Farm cliffs, is what's left of the derelect Howard Smith Wharves. The monitor lizards have claimed the fenced off area as home. In Australia, monitor lizards are known as goannas. Look very closely and you will see the large lizard surveying his kingdom.

The Wharves are an historical landmark with both Indigenous and heritage value. Brisbane City Council is developing a master plan to revitalise the 3.56-hectare area.

The site has stunning views of the Brisbane cityscape.
