If you are in Sydney I would highly recommend the Bridge Climb we did the Discovery Climb and it was amazing getting to see underneath the bridge and be told all the information about the bridge and then popping out at the top of the bridge. The best part was it was quite a hot day and because we were... More

We heard about the Bridge Climb Experience and I immediately asked my family. All were up for it. This was a very expensive day out but it was one of the most memorable things we did in Australia, I highly recommend it. There is no fear of falling as the restraint system and jumpsuit you must wear all but precludes... More

We walked the Harbour Bridge on Good Friday. You are professionally prepared and taken through the walk to the top at a safe controlled manner with a very informative history of the bridge. Our young host Emily took the time to ensure everyone was not rushed and heard all the key information through earphones. The walk is expensive however the... More

Completed in 1932, this bridge cost the lives of 16 brave workers during its construction. Definitely a must do for any visitor to Sydney. If you don't want to spend too much, you need not go on the bridge climb, or pay to go up the the Southeast pylon- just walking across and back will reward you with stunning views... More

At first I was very concerned as I am absolutely terrified of heights (even though I am a roofing contractor). Kitting up and briefing by staff fine, first part of climb - thought to myself, can't do this too frightening even with safety harness and line on but as there were women in front of me, some over 70 years...

The bridge climb is way to expensive when you can walk the bridge for free but the bridge is so iconic to Sydney it's almost a must do and see! It's beautiful I promise stop and enjoy the sights!

Absolutely worth the money for this unbelievable experience. We did the late afternoon climb so got to watch an amazing sunset over the blue mountains from the summit. The views are incredible up there & it really is one of the must do's for Sydney. The bridge is iconic & to view the city & surrounding areas from such a... More

The Bridge climb takes you to the top of the bridge. Unfortunately it rained when I was there. I also feel there are other vantage points that can give you a better view of Sydney Harbour

The bridge is of course one of the most recognised structures in the world and we spent some time taking photos. It is so expensive if you want to climb it. I'm afraid they would have to pay me to climb it, not the other way round !

yeah, so the bridge is just a bridge, but the climb is so so worth doing. Views are great and the whole experience is so nice.
