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.

This together with the Opera House are two most important landmarks of Sydney. You can see the bridge together with the Opera House and if you were in the city on weekend, you can go to the Bridge Market just next to the bridge.

Landing in Sydney after flying from the east coast of the USA leaves even hardened business travelers stiff and tired. To get into the mix quickly my colleagues and I walked across the Harbour Bridge on a beautiful blue skies day. The walk loosened the muscles and the views kept us looking every step of the way. The iconic opera... More

To walk across is a walk in time, it has been there over eighty years. From the bridge you get top views of the Harbour and the Sydney Opera House. If you go from circular quay side on the way back you can drop down the stairs and walk back around the water front.

The bridge climb is something everyone talks about and it is really a unique experience and view. It was not cheap, our trip was $200 US and it took about 2 1/2 to 3 hours but time flew by. I was a little concerned about the height before we went but never really noticed it once we were going. The... More

We hopped on a ferry at Darling Harbour and went to Circular Quay, this was a great way to see the Harbour Bridge (and the Opera House) there was a large cruise liner manoeuvring in the busy harbour at the time which added to the spectacle

Having climbed the bridge a few years ago, I encouraged my wife to join me the next time I went. She was a little nervous of the potential effort involved however ended up elated at the thrill of doing this great activity. It isn't just the view that is exciting but the great feeling of being on top of this... More

The "coat hanger" as it is affectionately known as spans Sydney Harbour and is an icon of this beautiful city. The area around the rocks also features cafes,old pubs and architecture from Sydney's first settlement. Definitely do the bridge climb its very safe and the views from the top are spectacular.
