Owner description: 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.

“A must see.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

While I didn't climb the bridge as it is a bit pricey, a visit to view the bridge is a must see on any trip to Sydney.
Combine this attraction with a visit to the Sydney Opera House and the Botanic Gardens and you are in for a great day.
Indulge in Harbour side fine dining or grab a take away sandwich or burger and sit on the grass.
Don't forget to bring a camera!

Well if I was twenty years younger I might have joined the brave few who did the bridge climb as it was I was happy enough to just walk across it

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

One of the most impressive bridges ive ever seen. A nice walk up and over it from the rocks. Great views of the harbour and opera house from the walkway no need to climb it.

“Awesome,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Having seen it so many times in adverts books etc it was good to see the bridge for real, there is plenty of information available on its history as well as the opportunity to climb it as part of a group but this is quite expensive and not for those with a fear of heights.

“This and The Opera House spell 'Sydney'”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We did not climg the bridge like a lot of you did, but is awe inspiring to just look at it. Mighty by day and pretty by night. It, like the golden gate bridge in San Fransisco defines the city.
