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!

Locals and tourist alike won't be disappointed climbing this icon as the views are breathtaking...you can see where the Harbour starts , all the small island along the way, the 3 bridges constructed 30 years from each other, this one the Sydney bridge in the 30', the Gladsville in the 60' and the Anzac in the 90'. Is an adventure in itself as you walk through ladders and the inside of this huge structure. My guide was Richard, his comments were funny and very knowledgeable. All in all a very good experience, I been twice to this attraction, once in 2002 and now...I am a local and it is the best view in the city.

This was one of the items on my "to do list" when in Australia. Yes, it's expensive but it's worth it. We had a small group of 14 people, The safety and equipment was reassuring, and the guide was extremely informative. We felt safe and secure the whole time. There are just enough stops to enjoy the view and the experience. Yes, the jumpsuit is not very flattering but it's practical and has a purpose. We enjoyed every second of it and I would do it again in a heartbeat. We did the whole bridge climb first thing in the morning, 8:45 am, there were lots of stops to catch your breath, look around and have them take pictures. At the end you are rewarded with a certificate, one picture and the hat. Then it's up to you to buy more photos or not. They also have great souvenirs, pricey but worth it.

Amazing experience.

Guide was fantastic and very knowledgable. Enjoyed every second.

Safety briefing was very thorough and at no point did I ever feel unsafe.

Would definately recommend this activity regardless of price. Views are breathtaking alone

This is in my book a must do! The Bridge itself is a beautiful and iconic attraction in the city and the climb is a great way to live it.
I can understand a lot of people fear heights and the idea of climbing a bridge is a daunting experience but if you can make yourself do it.
It is not cheap but is professional, safe and well worth the money. The staff are very helpful, accomdating and friendly and if you have any doubts they will get you to walk behind them at the front of the group. The safety is first class and you are attached to wires by a belt and there is absolutely NO WAY that you can fall off! Everything is very secure.
I did the original Bridge Climb, which takes you along the flat part of the bridge, up the stairs, up the arch to the top and back down. It's a three and a half hour climb but it is not strenuous at all. Throughout the climb you stop many times for water, to get your breath back and for the guide to explain and point out interesting things as you go.The guides are very knowledgable, interesting and humurous. You also stop for photo's. You get one photo, a certificate and a cap in the price. Other photo's can be purchased.
Overall it's a great experience to do while in Sydney as you get to see the city in such a different way. It's a brilliant and memorable experience.

This was super cool, and really fairly easy for our group of 6 (ages 57-74). A little scary for the fear of heights, but views that make it worth it. Great safety briefing and equipment. And fantastic guides to take you on the journey. Plenty of rest stops, easy walk up top, not too rigorous at all. You will be glad you did it...we sure were, one of our favorite memories !
