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 did the bridge climb. On the positive side it is a very nice climb. Not too physically challenging and I've a fear of heights but felt perfectly safe. Safety is taken seriously. Bridge was being re painted when we did it. Should be all done now . Staff very friendly.
And it is a great thing to say you've done

On the negatives

It is extremely expensive

Safety takes too long. You've to get changed into a jump suit & go through metal detector Get Cap belt radio etc. this takes too long in my opinion. Perhaps their staging area works very well when you've large groups. We were a group of 6. And could have gotten ready in half the time.

You can't bring anything with you except glasses so no photos. The guide does take photos and you get a free group photo. But as we are a couple. We've two copies of the same photo. Additional photos are $30 each

I'm glad I did it. Wouldn't pay to do it again. Bit if you're worried about funds then the pylon is the option for you. Everyone should do the pylon !!

It's really important to say... Don't be put off by the price! I personally thought it was well worth the money!

It's a really fun day/ 3.5 hour activity to do. The preparation in the office building is all good fun, a bit of training, and putting all your equipment on. They definitely have the whole process nailed!

Our guide was really fun, and definitely knew his stuff! You get a fantastic view from the top, and it's not actually that difficult to get there! It's very exciting though!

You may only get one chance to do this, so don't regret taking the opportunity! It really is a great experience.

I booked the bridge climb as I felt it was a must do when visiting Sydney, I was a bit nervous but no need as it was a terrific experience, I was lucky beyond belief to get a solo tour, the preparation was easy and the lady who assisted me was very friendly and helpful, my guide for the climb was Mitch who was very informative about the history of the the bridge and all the views around Sydney as well as being a fun guy with a good sense of humour, this was one of the highlights of our trip, thanks very much
