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.

For a nice sum you can do the bridge climb which is well worth doing, if you have the time and $. However, a walk across the bridge from the city to Kirribilli and back, or one way returning by train is great. Approx. 1.5km from start to finish but great views. You can pay extra ($15 I think) to... More

A must see while in Sydney. Across from the Opera House scenic views this is a must see while visiting Sydney. I recommend it.

OK, I've lived here for many years, and crossed the bridge every single day for quite a number of years. But it's just such a beauty and I'd never get sick of it. I love the free walk across the bridge. The paid touristy bridge walk wasn't bad either. Absolutely love the new year fireworks showing here. The most spectacular... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip - We booked tickets from a harbour ticket booth the day before. The whole set up is very professional, and our safety was always their first concern. Our guide was great fun, very knowledgeable about the bridge and its history. We can certainly recommend it! If you are not sure if... More

What can I say? I did the climb at dawn on Valentines day and it was better than I expected! Its not cheap ( $386 AUD per person) but given the unique nature of the exercise, I think well worth it. The dawn climbs usually only happen on the first Saturday of the month. so some planning is in order... More

You have to do the walk over this bridge and if not too scared of heights go to the very top to get the most amazing views of Sydney. It's about twenty minutes to walk across the bridge at an easy pace, and you do have to climb four flights of steps to get to the bridge but it's worth... More

Crossing the Bridge by foot has been the best expirience at Sydney. Feeling the wind in your face, smelling the sea, listening the boats whistles and admiring Sydney Harbor is undescripable

While the views of the bridge are grand, make sure you see it from many angles (Opera House, Circular Quay, Lunar Park) and most importantly from the TOP!! Take the bridge walk. It's a must and very safe and enjoyable even for an average walker.
