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.

“Wonderful piece of architecture and sensational views from the top!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2015 NEW

If you can afford it, as it is quite expensive, do a harbour bridge climb. We did one and watched the sunrise from the top of it and it is up there with one of the best things I have ever done.

Even just looking at the bridge across the harbour from where the Opera House is, is amazing. It is so expansive and dominating. I would very much recommend doing this if you are ever in Sydney.

“Amazing view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2015 NEW

The harbour bridge climb is a great experience and something you should try to do when in Sydney. A little pricey but well worth the effort. Not a problem if scared of heights as you can't really see much below you but as you look out the harbour and opera house are spectacular. Very safe and even though you look a little dorky in th climb suits it's a great attraction.

“Stunning modernist structure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2015 NEW via mobile

The bonus besides looking at it, either by day or night, is that you can climb up and over the bridgehead as well.

Simply amazing.

“Nice walk or run”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2015 NEW

It is a little over a two mile walk back and forth. Of course you can go one way and take the train back if you're so inclined. Plan on taking some time crossing as there are many photo ops (or just places to gaze) of great Sydney landmarks. It is a fun and free way to spend an afternoon.
