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.

You can go on a tour and climb the bridge.Think of it as great exercise. The guide allows you to go at your own pace while telling interesting stories of history. A great experience no mater how old you are. But not for young children or carrying a baby.

In the rain, we climbed the bridge. It was worth it. It was fun, not very strenuous and the views were spectacular. I highly recommend it, even in the rain.

We had a wonderful walk across the bridge which took 20 to 25 minutes as we took wonderful pictures of the harbor and opera house. It's a nice view of all Sydney.

It is obviously, THE landmark of Australia of course can't say anything new that hasn't been said about it. The climb was good fun, recommended but debatable as to whether or not doing it is worth it. I would recommend just doing a trip of the pylon but walking up and down this bridge between the North/South divide, anyways, for... More

Magnificent view, even from the lower part ( in the opening at the fence). It was really windy the day we walked. And there was much noise from the traffic . A bit disappointing that there was none places for view without the fence .

Hugh bridge links between CBD and Milson Point. Use ferry to Darling Harbour or Milson point to enjoy close (underneath) view of the bridge.

I saw this and rode on the bridge in a car . I wish I had had time to walk across. It's really pretty at night lit up.
