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.

This amazing bridge spans the harbour and is one of the great sites of sydney and the harbour. In my mind it equals the opera house especially when the morning or afternoon lights reflects on the girders. The whole bridge provides a scenic outlook in the circular quay and darling harbour area and is the perfect accompaniment to the amazing... More

BridgeClimb started in 1998 and attracts tourists and locals alike to climb the monument. After climbing through catwalks and up ladders and stairs, the view is absolutely breathtaking. The Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of Australia's most well... More

N.B The western side of the bridge is for bicycles. Access: If you're coming from the harbour, walk... More

We took a ferry several times from one side to another and enjoyed the view of this beautiful bridge. Then we thought, it's just not enough! So we decided to do a bridge climb and it was an experience I'll never forget. Bridge climb center offers different starting times and we decided to go for a twilight one. Started at... More

This is a highlight from my visit 5 years ago. The guide tells you facts about the bridge and city as you walk up the bridge arch. I thought it would be scary being at the top,but it wasn't.

The day was overcast with rain forecast so we were slightly disappointed about out climb being a let down. We were introduced to our guide, Scott, who was chatty and informative and full of stories... More
