“Expensive but totally worthwhile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

This is on top of my "bucket list" of things to do in Sydney and it does not disappoint. We booked the twilight climb and it is worth the extra money. After the usual 45 minutes of prep time, we began the climb at around 6pm, reached the sunset right after sunset and were greeted with an awesome night time view of Sydney CBD on the descend.

There are two paths, the most popular being the one via the upper arch. With this path, you walk through a series of catwalks underneath the bridge, through the pylon, after which you would climb through 4 sets of ladders to reach the upper arch. From this point, you will slowly ascend to the top of the summit. You then descend down the other side, through the ladders, through the pylon, back to the base. You spend a little over 2 hours on the bridge. This path is not as strenuous as it might originally seem, the biggest elevation change being the 4 sets of ladders that take you from the bottom of the road deck to the top of the upper arch.

Throughout the whole time on the bridge, you are attached to the bridge with a wire system. And to ensure the safety of cars traveling on the bridge, you are not allowed to bring anything that is not attachable to the jumpsuit they provide. So, no cameras allowed. There are 5 spots where the guide will take photos of you and your entire group. A group photo is included with the price of the climb, and you can purchase more.

Our guide Nat is great, enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

“Bridge climb”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

Worth while excursion, although expensive. 3 1/2 hours was too long. Wish we would have done the 2 1/2 hour express tour, although the same price. Seemed to be unnecessary waiting throughout the climb as well as trivial detail. That said, views were spectacular for entire climb. Not too strenuous.

“Wonderful views led by a great guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

We really enjoyed this unique experience.
We had a great guide called Brett! good jokes and very understanding with people at various ages and sizes.
Spectacular views and photos supplied by the guide. These can be pricey but it was fun putting the best picture straight on Facebook via a special machine in the ticket office.
