I was part of the Rotary International group who had the honor to be part of the record breaking Bridge climb in June this year. We managed to break the record for the largest single group of people on the Bridge at the same time - brill -, our second record breaking thing was that we held more flags of... More

Being scared of heights was against me to climb, although I'd secretly wished I'd do it one day. My husband had bought tickets for us to climb for my birthday as a surprise, he didn't tell me we were doing it and when we rocked up there I was a bit scared. Our guide that we had was absolutely amazing,... More

My only regret is I didn't do the climb to the top. Take the tour and your get to climb to the top of the bridge from the outside. People said it was an amazing experience. Must do next time I'm in Sydney.

We completed the bridge climb in Sydney and this was one of the highlights of our trip to Australia. The exhibition adjacent to the reception area is very interesting and gives an insight into how the bridge was designed and built. The climb itself is very well organised and the staff who run the tours are informative and approachable, with... More

We decided to do the Sydney Harbor Bridge Climb --- never in a million years did I imagine that I would be on top of this iconic landmark. And what a thrill it was. Our guide Darren was absolutely fantastic. He gave us a lot of fun facts about the bridge on our climb to the top. The tour takes... More

We did the BridgeClimb over the Harbour Bridge and while it is very steeply overpriced, about 310 AUD or so (when you get your photos afterwards, because you can't take cameras up there), it is definitely "a walk to remember". Of course, everything you see from the top of the bridge, you will see from the Pylon Lookout as well.... More

Climbing the Harbour Bridge was brilliant. We went up on the twilight climb, which meant we set off in daylight, then watched the sun go down over the Blue Mountains & then came down in the dark, seeing Sydney lit up below us. Well worth it. Our guide was really knowledgeable & very friendly.

The bridge climb is without a doubt the best thing to do in Sydney. We saved this until last and were so glad we did. The experience lasts a good three and half hours. Forty five minutes of that is orientation and preparation before hooking on and beginning the climb. Our tour guide (Scott) was extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic and helpful.... More

There are many wonderful ways to enjoy and marvel at this Sydney landmark: 1) have a sip of great wine at Circular Quay area and watch the bridge during sun rise, sun set, and bridge climbers 2) take on the expansive views on top deck of the ferry boats from any of the Circular Quay docks 3) Be one of...
