Why is this attraction not more well publicised by Sydney Tourist Board? We even spoke to locals who knew nothing of its existence. Great 36 deg views from the top.$11 each and that includes a film show and pictorial story board of how the bridge was built. Excellent!

It was about AUD10.00 for the climb up the stairs of the Sydney pylon, which provides a breath taking view of the bridge and the harbor. You can also see the people on the bridge climb. After descending take the stirs to the bottom of the bridge and stop off at one of the pubs for a cold beer.

We wanted to get a good view of Sydney from the bridge but the price of the bridge walk was a bit too expensive and you're not allowed to take your camera up with you so I saw this as an alternative to doing the bridge walk and at $11 a ticket it was a much better for our budget. There are 222 stairs up once you go up onto the bridges' road level, but there's plenty of rest places and exhibits so you can take your time. It is signposted around the city so you can find it. The views from the top are fantastic of the harbor and the opera house, and if you know someone on the bridge walk you could take photos of them from the top quite easily. It wasn't very busy when we went up but that could be because it was winter.
