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. « less

While street performers entertain outside, those wanting a more cultural experience can head into the Museum of Contemporary Art where a sculpture garden on the roof is as much a view as the waterways below. « less

It became her favorite spot to look upon the harbour and serves that same purpose today for visitors who take a moment to rest there. « less

It's the perfect place to start your Sydney adventure. With views stretching out as far as the eye can see in all directions, there's no better place to find your bearings. Sydney Tower Eye is a true year-round visitor attraction. Gazing out across the beautiful harbour city you'll be captivated by the views of stunning Sydney in all its glory. Crystal clear skies in winter make for the best viewing distances of the year, while in Spring the explosion of Jackaranda Trees covers the Eastern Suburbs in vibrant splashes of purple. Sydney is at its best in Summer, and guests soak up the city's laid back Summer vibe from the cool air-conditioned deck as the streets swelter below. Autumn brings gorgeous orangey glows and the best sunsets of the year - the perfect time to head out on a SKYWALK for 'that' picture of the city and harbour in the background. « less

Night tours of 90 minute duration include telescope viewing and a 3D Space Theatre experience with a planetarium experience in cloudy weather. Day tours include solar viewing (weather permitting) and a 3D Space Theatre in a 30-40 minute tour. Entry to the Observatory is free during the day, tours are a small extra charge but well worth it to experience modern astronomy and solar viewing with an astronomer. Night tours must be booked and prepaid. « less

It stands separate from the Museum, in the open air on Darling Harbour. It's free of charge, unlike the Museum and is a record of the Immigration History with stories and diary extracts from the first convict ships right up to the current day. A fascinating attraction but because it's officially part of the Museum gets forgotten about in tourist brochures. « less
