Likes: the sheer presence of the Bridge in the harbour. Dislikes: so expensive to climb it and the queues are legendary.

we booked online before our trip, that was the easy part, when we arrived in Sydney a few days before our climb we wondered if we had made the right decision. Our hotel the four seasons an excellent hotel by the way overlooked the bridge and we thought about our booked clime every time we looked at the bridge. On... More

Get to climb area well before you are scheduled to go. It's at the westerly side of Circular Quay. There is a lot of procedural stuff to do before you are fully suited up to climb. Guides are well informed and able to share many facts regarding bridge. Don't be afraid to try it.

climbed the Sydney tower bridge, it looks and seems very scary but you are well clamped to the railing and it is very safe and adventurous. I saw elderly people also enjoying every bit of it.. well worth the price. mid way your picture is taken which you get at the end of the climb..must do..

My wife and I did the bridge climb during our stay in Sydney. I had very high expectations as everyone I had spoken to said it was a must see attraction. Maybe I had unrealistic expectations. I thought it was ok, expensive for what we did. I am a adrenaline junkie and thought the bridge would give you a thrill.... More

A must watch in Sydney; trip to Sydney ca not be completed without seeing this bridge; general walk to the bridge takes only 20-25 min from Circular Quay (one way)

We did the express climb and yes it's expensive but worth doing. Very helpful, professional staff and extremely well organised. Only complaint is what they charge for photos. If you don't buy them you have no memories really as nothing can be taken up with you. Really ripped off with the photos but what can you do?

If you're not afraid of heights, this climb is relatively easy and with spectacular views. They equip you with a "onesy", headphones, jacket, cap, gloves and you are connected to the bridge at every step. The hardest part is four ladder climbs to get to the arch, but the arch is easy to walk. And the whole way you get... More
