Known to locals as "the Coathanger," the Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of Australia's most photographed landmarks. The bridge took 1,400 men a total of eight years to complete, and was officially ... Read more
opened in 1932. Today, BridgeClimb allows visitors to choose from three different climbs that guide them up to the bridges summit, 134 meters above Sydney Harbor. If you're afraid of heights, take the pedestrian walkway across the steel arch to the Pylon Lookout, where an exhibition about the bridge is on display.

A great adventure for just about everyone!
Yes, it's quite a climb, yes it's high (134 meters), but it's doable for anyone with a minimal physical condition. Much consideration is taken to ensure your safety, and the instructions are clear. And my 85 year old father made the trip just fine!

Our climb guide looked after us well and made sure everyone was fine and any queries were answered. About 4 times, the tour (max 14 people) holds a break, allowing you to relax and enjoy the amazing views. The climb is mainly on normal easy steps, but does include 4 ladders up, and at the end 4 ladders, down. At the top of the bridge, the guide takes time to take pictures of you and your friends, which you can purchase later. Note that you are not allowed to take your own camera with you - you leave your personal belongings in a locker before you depart for the climb.

We went during the day, but when you're ok to make a very early start, you can opt to book the sunrise tour. You then leave before sunrise and watch the sun come up.

We took the subway metro line to one stop after the bridge and walked across the bridge of the great view of Sydney. I must go back here during the New Year's Eve for the fireworks show.

2017 Dec: Second time back here for NYE and saw the best fireworks ever!

I usually drive over the Harbour bridge for work on a motorcycle so $4 return is quite expensive. I have two wheels not four.

The iconic symbol of Sydney, there's a pedestrian way for people to wall across the bridge, where you can have a great view of Sydney opera house, and the locals like to jog in the morning and evening

A beautiful landmark, signature of the city. I decided not to do the famous climb to the top but def go for it if you are into that. My friend did, she like it or perhaps she didn’t want to admit that 200$ could have been spent better)

Iconic bridge linking the CBD to the northern suburbs of Sydney. I got off at Milsons Point and walked down to the water to view it up close. Afterwards I walked back to the train station and found a set of stairs to walk across the bridge. Great alternative to the bridge climb which will set you back a few hundred.

Cool looking bridge! You can pay $$$ to walk to the top for 6 hrs I believe, otherwise it's nice to look at from the shore.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of Sydney's two iconic structures. It is well loved and well cared for. The painting crew never stop. With so many steel surfaces to paint they start at one end and when they get to the other side it is time to start all over again.

Of course if you're in Australia, you're going to want to visit the Sydney Harbor Bridge! We had the opportunity to visit and walk across the bridge, which was an adventure in itself! It provided a great view of the Opera house and with the wind whipping through our hair as we walked by, it definitely created some interesting pictures! It can get a little long, so wear comfortable shoes!

Sydney harbour bridge is one of the most famous bridges in the world and it's popularity is entirely justified. The views from the bridge are spectacular and walking across it costs absolutely nothing. If you do have a few hundred dollars to spend, you can participate in the bridge climb, going over the top of the bridge, but the sights from the free platform are still incredible and it doesn't cost a penny to cross it on foot.

Ok so I got talked into doing this bridge climb over the harbour. It was amazing, although quite windy the day we went. If youre in Sydney you must do this!

The Bridge is one of the most photographed buildings in Sydney. This double hinged, and also the tallest steel arch bridge in the world offers not only its picturesqueness and popularity, but now calls the adrenaline junkies out there to try its daring tour, bridge climb. Guaranteed by safety procedure, it challenges the visitors to climb up its 134 meters height. The fear of height stopped me trying the tour, but seeing those climbers from afar, told me that the climbing could feed their extreme challenge hunger and they might also enjoy having 360 degrees fantastic view of its surrounding.

Sydney Harbour Bridge is a steel arch structure joining the northern and southern parts of Sydney across Port Jackson. Construction was commenced in 1923 and it was officially opened in 1932. You can walk across the arch - www.bridgeclimb.com

One of Sydney's iconic landmarks, the steel bridge graces the harbour since 1932. You can climb over it with the Bridge Climb, drive across it or admire it from afar. You can also observe it up-close from the Pylon Lookout observatory, a much cheaper and less adrenaline filled option than the Bridge Climb.
