Spanning the city center to the North Shore, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is a wide steel arch bridge known for its beauty as well as function, providing a crossing for cars, trains, bikes and pedestrians. While the more daring can do the BridgeClimb to the top of the structure, opened to traffic in 1932, anyone can enjoy a walk for free.

I had done the bridge climb on a previous trip, so this time my friend and I just walked across it on the sidewalk, and it was just as cool if you don't have the money to do the climb. Great views of the Opera House and Harbour, and very peaceful!

A very professional run attraction. Staff are very friendly more than happy to answer questions and put minds at ease. The initial part of the climb under the bridge was intimidating for our 11 year old but once onto the arch of the bridge it was amazing. Our guide Kate was incredibly informative, we learnt so much. We had incredible... More

The walk across the bridge itself is easy and not too long. The steps at the Cumberland St (Rocks) end are many, so perhaps commence the walk from the North Shore (still some steps, but not as many). Each end of the bridge can be accessed via train or ferry. One of the pylons has a museum and you can... More

This is a strong looking bold structure so grand in the Sydney harbour.It's great to see it up close after seeing it in many postcards in the past. You can walk to the top and view Sydney from a birds eye perspective.

Definitely a "Must Do" in Sydney even if it results a bit pricey when you have several kids. Weather was really not great, highly cloudy with a bit of rain, and despite this we really enjoyed each of the minutes we spent on the bridge. Definitely better not to be scared of heights.

I walked across Sydney Harbour Bridge having been a short term visitor to Sydney in 2014 and decided there are some things i must do to understand Sydney better. Apart from sweeping, panoramic and breathtaking views providing the perfect photo opportunity of the Opera House, harbour and surrounding suburbs there is an information centre. The information centre or museum fully... More

Awesome views. So lucky that the sun came out and we had blue skies after the cloud and rain of the previous day. Such a memorable experience.

The most famous arch-bridge in the world, once criticized for spoiling the views, now a spectacular part of this spectacular city. And now one can enjoy a stunning walk right over the top, day or night. It's not scary, its safe and beautiful, and great value for money.

This is a very streamlined process. You get kitted up and before you know your climbing your way to the top of the bridge. It's a very easy climb with a few ladder climbs at the beginning and the end. As you would expect, the sight up there is beautiful. I could have stayed up there all day. Jake our... More
