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!

We have travelled around the world & usually end our trip with one thrill seeking adventure. After a 2 week trip, we arrived in Sydney & decided to do the Bridge Climb. It was a thrilling experience & totally worth the money spent. The staff are courteous & very helpful. Due to a mix-up with our tickets( we had booked online earlier while in NJ), we were in a bit of a bind. The extremely helpful manager Dave Frankie sorted out the problem & was extremley helpful & polite. We are very thankful to the way he handled something that could have become a problem. We had an absolutely great climb with Nicholas, our climb guide. He was a total delight..providing excellent commentary & jokes all the way. He made sure we were all suited up properly, guided us through what to expect, and checked regularly on people all along the climb to make sure we were comfortable. His high energy made a lot of difference We greatly enjoyed the whole experience & cannot recommend him enough.
If you are the type who enjoy a thrill, like challenging yourself & can do with some great views of the beautiful Sydney harbor, then this climb is for you. Whatever else you do, or do not do in Sydney, do yourself a favor & book yourself on this climb. You wont regret it!
We went on the night climb(started at 4.25 PM) & ended at around 7.30 PM, so it takes 3 hours or so from start to finish. They provide everything you need for to stay warm, so just bring along your sense of adventure & great smiles;)

Just amazing views and stoty telling about the bridge build while you are properly dressed and equipped to make this exciting and "Thing to do in Life" attraction. If you are in Sydney, this is a mandatory attraction to visit, else you are incomplete. Book your photos in advance to get some discounts. The Climb is a bit expensive but at the end of the day you will not regret it. The photos of you with Opera House and the On the top of Bridge are amazing and worth all the effort. For those with fear of heights, do not worry as you are fully safe with the best equipment like walky talky and complete safety gear!

My daughter & I did the bridge climb some months ago & the whole experience was fantastic. We were the only Aussie's to climb our bridge on that day from all the other tourists. Even though the stories & jokes about the bridge were stretched a little by the guide, the experience was great. I would go again. The view from the top is absolutely fantasiic

This bridge is beautiful and its hard to believe that its 81 years old. I know its a little pricy but if you can do yourself a favor and do the bridge climb. It is so worth it!!! You get great views of the harbour and your guide will give you lots of information on the bridge and Sydney.

We loved this trip - it did take a while to get kitted up but they take safety very seriously, not only for yourself but for people below. Everything you take up is attached to you and you are clipped to a metal cable the whole climb. The climb is relatively easy apart from a few steep ladders but you get to practise before getting out on the bridge so that they are sure everyone is capable of the climb. The views are amazing, we were lucky with the weather although it did cloud over so I would be wary about paying the extra for the sunset climb. We even bought photos which we wouldn't normally do but we felt it was worth the money (shared cost between four of us) and a great memento.
