Owner description: See Sydney at its best - take the Climb of Your Life with BridgeClimb Sydney! With our Climb Leaders as your guide, you will suit-up in our specially designed outdoor gear and ascend the arches of the coathanger. From dawn until dusk, the view from the top is always different. Climbs are available at dawn (limited departures), during the day, twilight or night. Did you know there's more than one way to the top? choose between the original BridgeClimb, a 3.5h experience travelling on the upper arch, The BridgeClimb Express, which travels on the inner arch and bursts through to the summit from below in 2h 15min, or the BridgeClimb Sampler, a 90 minute experience that reaches a vantage point half way to the top. The BridgeClimb and BridgeClimb express are also offered in Mandarin. We also offer Special Event Climbs for some of Sydney's Festivals, such as Vivid Sydney or Australia day. Don’t miss out on this unforgettable, and uniquely “Sydney” experience!

The Bridge climb in Sydney Australia was exciting and breathtaking. At first you will probably get so overwhelmed you will think of backing out. This Bridge is HUGE and tall as double hockey sticks, but listen you will be thankful you faced your fears and continued on. The waiting to first get sized up in what looks like skydiving suits will intimidate you to thinking " WTF" but then the folks who tell you about the total climb are humorous and kind then you ease right in the excitement of this adventure. You will not have any regrets! We were so lucky once at the top of the Bridge an Australian Jet Fighter did a couple of fly overs which was so close it felt you could have almost touch the plane! Really, not that close but close and heart pounding , the excitement would make the toughest guy glee with delight.
This should be another of the wonders of the world tour! Check it for yourself, again you will not regret this experience of a life time!

This was fun! Not grueling, and the views are incredible. It is expensive, and only because of that would we not do this a second time at night or twilight. Absolutely must do it once. Our climb leader, Leah, was brilliant.

We went up to the pylon lookout the next day and while the value is there, it is nowhere near the same experience. If you're just in it for the view or a few pictures, the pylon lookout is fine, but I think you will be missing out!

I went with my husband and had so much fun! The guide was friendly, the views were amazing and the climb was something you might never have the opportunity to do elsewhere. The weather was good for us but they don't give refunds for inclement weather so if heavy rain or wind will bum you out, don't go (I wouldn't recommend buying tickets that far in advance if the weather might change your mind). Yes, this is VERY expensive but I think it's worth the price for the overall experience. They take pictures at the top, and yes, they make you pay for those separately (they give you a free group shot) but you really can't avoid that. And you can't bring ANYTHING up with you (so leave your cameras at home) but they do provide storage lockers. The climb itself is not strenuous at all (maybe a little on your calves) so anyone can do it;)

The Sydney Harbour Bridge climb is a must do in Sydney!!!!! The views were absolutely breathtaking. The guide stops at several spots to take pictures that actually turned out really well with the beautiful views in the background. We did the Express Climb, which was perfect for the amount of time we had. It does get very busy though, and hotter as the day goes on so I would recommend reservations and going in the morning!

I was quite apprehensive about climbing the bridge as I'm not a great fan of heights but this was not scary at all! You are safely attached to the rail at all times and your guide is busy talking you through the sights so you almost forget to be scared! The bridgeclimb was very well organised and very safety conscious so we felt safe at all times and once you get past the ladders and out onto the bridge the views are amazing! You can't come to Sydney and not do this - it is a must! I would recommend - we climbed in the day, if I was to come back again then it would have to be a night time climb. I would give 5 stars but the experience is very pricey - this is the only reason I am not giving a full 5 stars.
