This is what many locals consider to be their most notable landmarr, so definitely worth checking out. That said, I didn't think it was necessarily that incredible or unique compared to other bridges I've seen. It does offer some nice views of the harbour though. We didn't do the bridge climb, which is time consuming and expensive - but did... More

Loved going under the Bridge in the ferries, we had the most beautiful weather too. We went to Watson bay and could still see the bridge from there, also park on ferries right near the bridge when it pulls into Luna Park. Really amazing structure

We climbed the bridge at night and were not disappointed. The climb was not scary at all. I am scared of heights when I don't feel safe, but this didn't scare me one bit. When we got to the top of the bridge, we were lucky to have a firework show over the harbor. Our guide let us stay at... More

Before we arrived in Sydney, I really wanted to climb this bridge. I was really all set to give it a try. Then I tried to talk my wife into it. She's a good sport but that wasn't happening. Then I read you have to empty your pockets and can't have a camera. Then I saw how expensive it was... More

We the the bridge climb at night with a couple of friends as a birthday treat. It was a brilliant experience. You cannot take your own pictures, but they do take pictures of you at suitable points on the bridge. Definitely worth heading up at night, the lights are spectacular and the Opera House looked so beautiful. There is the... More

Considered climbing over the bridge but chickened out. Fantastic views from P&O Arcadia which Sailed into Sidney Harbour and berthed in Darling Harbour overnight. Spent five fantastic days in Sidney so saw the bridge from many different angles and positions.

Brilliant attraction for Sydney. The views are fantastic during the day and stunning when lit up in the evening, both from the side and from the ferry Just sorry I am afraid of heights as I would have loved to have climbed this.

So the Bridge is there, you can't take photos when you get to the top. So climb the Pillar. View from the top is spectacular, lots of photos, lots of time. Very good option climb the stairs without the rip off!

I drove over the bridge, not on my most recent visit to Sydney, but some months before with my family. Our children were gob smacked! It really is a great experience to drive over, and anyone visiting Sydney shouldn't miss the opportunity to pass over the bridge and admire this amazing architecture!
