gorgeous city. Climbing the Sydney Harbor Bridge, a city staple since 1932, is a challenging, once in a lifetime adrenaline rush that few people can say they have accomplished. Scale ladders, trundle up stairs and make your way through narrow passageways on your way to the top. Various climb packages are available that cover different routes and various times up the bridge.

It's not so much that it's super fun but the experience is unique and should be shared and cherished by people you did the climb with. Don't forget to snack a little and hydrate yourself since the entire process can take over 3 hours. Another tip is to check your pictures and if you don't like them l, ask your guide to retake them.

It's expensive but SO worth it. Where else in the world do you get to climb to the peak of a bridge? It's completely safe. You're given a jumpsuit, a harness that attaches to the bridge, a flashlight, gloves, handkerchief, and an extra windbreaker in case it rains. The whole tour probably takes about two hours, but I've done it rain and shine, and you MUST go.

Ok, so you need a decent head for heghts to give this one a try! Sydney Bridge Climb is really something that you should have a go of if you end up with the time and money to do it while visiting this amazing city. The top of the arch is fully 143 meters above sea level, about the same as a 35 story building, so do make sure you're comfortable with being at that kind of height with just a harness holding you on. If you are, i can guarantee you won't be disappointed with the experience.

Very expensive but well worth it. An amazing and surprisingly immersive experience. Everyone is redressed in bridge overalls, harnessed up and then sets out climbing up, under, around and finally over the arch of the bridge. Fantastic views at the top. Both out over the city and harbour but down to the traffic below as well.

Conquer your fear of heights on the epic Bridge Climb. The adrenaline rush experience of climbing over the city’s staple since 1932 is something few can brag with. The Twilight Climb is a popular one, as you're rewarded with a sunset, encompassing view of the Harbour, the Central Business District, Manly Beach, all the way to Blue Mountains.

Warning: this thrill seeking attraction might break your travel budget, and occupy a few hours of your day. Be prepared, not for the light-hearted in any way.

A Must Do in Sydney. For those worried about a fear of heights you are firmly secured all the way up and down and there is no chance of falling off.

A very expensive and very touristy way to see the views of the harbour. Unfortunately, no cameras of any kind are allowed and you will pay dearly for the "official" snapshots of the climb.

Recommendation is to do the climb at night or at sunset so that you can see the harbour and buildings light up, though this will most certainly ruin any chances of getting good pictures.

If you are in Sydney you must not miss this. I a extremely terrified of height, can't ride in a glass elevator more than 11 floors. I read all the reviews of how people that were afraid of heights did this climb and how amazing it was. Now, although is was very safe it was still terrifying. But I do have to admit that it was just spectacular.

The Bridge Climb is our most popular tour in Sydney! You can experience the atmosphere of this amazing city from the top of the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge. Whether you go in the morning or at night, you won't be disappointed. Definitely a must but make sure you book in advance so you don't miss out!

Definitely do the Bridge Climb while you're in Sydney! It's a very memorable and unique experience. You literally feel like you're on top of the world with views of the entire city and beyond. You can choose from day, twilight or night climbs. It isn't a true climb either, it's simply a walk with a guide who tell you about the history of the contruction of the bridge and Sydney itself. It is very safe. A friend of mine who is afraid of heights even did it and loved it. Don't miss out on this one!

This is truly a once in a life time experience. I enjoyed myself so much and didn’t want to come back down. The view from the top is stunning and I loved every minute of the tour.

This is a must when visiting Sydney! The climb itself isn't too strenuous and you get the best view of Sydney in the city. You climb up one of the towers using ladders, then it's a gentle stroll to the centre of the bridge and back to the tower again. You get the chance to buy a photo of yourself with the Opera House in the background and we met some interesting people. I loved it!

It's a very nice view of Sydney Harbour from the top of the bridge. Also it's not very strenuous so easily accessible by all. A member of our BridgeClimb group proposed to his girlfriend at the highest point on the bridge (she said yes), which was pretty cool.

That being said, paying over $100 / head to walk up and down the bridge felt like you got gouged. In comparison, it's a $13 ferry ride to get to Liberty Island in NYC and free to walk to the top of the crown. In Sydney, save your $ and pay ~$10 and head to the top of the bridge tower instead.

It is an amazing view. I 'trained' by climbing the Story Bridge in Brisbane.

Do the twilight climb. You get to watch the sunset from the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The views of Manly Beach, the Central Business District and the Blue Mountains are incredible. It was a totally amazing three hour experience.

Helluva lotta fun. You put on a safety suit, and get trained on how to walk along safely linked to the bridge guardrails. If you flunk training, or flunk a breathalyzer, they send you away. Once you are ready, your group is lead up and along the Sydney bridge to the top, where you turn around and come down the other side. There are several photo ops along the way, and you can buy the pics (or not) when you are done. Great fun, great views, and something very unique to do.

Be prepared: You must have reservations to do this. We were able to come when they opened, signed up for later in the day, and came back.

For four years I had the pleasure of working at Bridgeclimb as a tour guide. Climbing one of the most iconic landmarks in Australia for my job was definitely not your average 9-5. The view from "my office" was breathtaking and is the best way that someone can see and learn about Sydney. I had the pleasure of meeting hundreds of people from all over the world and I was so proud to show them my hometown. If your relatively fit the climb itself is not overly strenuous. For those with a fear of heights, please don't be put off, it is not as hairy as you would think and be assured that your guide is trained well to help you along the way. I helped many a tourist overcome their fear of heights, it was always such a delight to share their accomplishment of "conquering the Bridge". The view from the top is well worth it and absolutely belongs on your bucket list. If any other fellow Gogobot's have any Bridgeclimb questions please don't hesitate to ask.

One of the things you MUST do while you're in Sydney. It affords remarkable views of the harbour and you feel like you're on top of the world. If you can, take the twilight tour, an amazing sunset over the city.
