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.

We went to Sydney last year in April, which although autumn there, was very warm! The harbour bridge was stunning and had amazing views from the top! We did the bridge climb which I recommend doing! The tour was friendly and was safe, although not suitable for young children or elderly, and we felt very secure up there. The views... More

We did this at night time and the view is amazing. It does take awhile to get to the top, but your guide gives you the background/history of the bridge. Make sure you take a photo and enjoy! It does get cold and windy up the top. I think during the day it would also be very scenic and you... More

We walked across the bridge from south to north with our two kids. It was a little bit tricky to find the entrance to the walkway, but once you get on it's a nice walk with great views of the opera house and the harbour. Once you get to the other side, I suggest getting a sandwich and going to... More

Saw this up close a few times on ferries from Circular Quay to Darling Harbour, and Manly Beach. The trip back from Manly was at sunset so many beautiful pics taken!

Sydney harbour bridge always features in my photos of Sydney. Mention Sydney and what comes to mind. This trip we walked across the bridge and back stopping to visit the Pylon Museum. The museum contains pictures documenting the history of the building of the bridge and a fascinating insight into how they did it. Well worth the visit and money... More

Each time you see the Sydney harbour bridge it takes your breath away. It is the construction, the location and the sheer size which makes this an icon of Australia. You can walk the bridge, but for dare devils you can cross the bridge on the arches. Have not done it, but it should be an amazing experience.

We looked into climbing the bridge but decided that our money could be better spent, so we walked across the bridge (free travel) and took some great photos of the Harbour, then jumped aboard the train and back across the bridge.

Not something you need to go out of your way to see. Especially being stuck in traffic doesn't help any. There are lots of other things to see in Sydney.

What a fantastic experience this is, i would recommend to anyone who has at least a moderate fitness level and has no problem with stairs. Took my 70 yr old father who does'nt particularly exorcise and he was fine. One of the highlights of his life. Beautiful view of all of Sydney harbour and surrounds. Would recomend to all, especially... More
