We were given vouchers for free entry when we checked in for our Harbour Bridge climb. There is a lot of information on the way up and around the ledges at the top of the Pylon. The views are spectacular and you ard able to take a camera up and take your own photos.

Absolutely beautiful and great learning experience. Good view of the Rocks, Opera House, and harbor. Located in one of the bridge towers, it is not a bad climb and has a reasonable fee. I found the museum to be fascinating as far as the history and technology of the bridge. For example, I am amazed that the towers exist solely for cosmetic purposes. How values change with time and place....

Wow, what a breathtaking view. There are around 200 steps to get to this lookout but it is so worth it. The story of building the bridge is told through storyboards as you make your way up. However the view is the star and with a harbour that glistens like a gemstone it can only be spectacular. It cost $11 to climb up but is a great alternative to those unable to climb the bridge itself. The high glass surounding the lookout makes you feel very safe. I'm terrified of heights but had no problems here at all. It is a bit tricky to find but if you find the bridge walk entrance you'll find the friendly staff happily pointing you in the right direction (about 150m to the left, haha). I highly recommend this to all.

This is a great way to view Sydney Harbour at far less of a cost compared to the Bridge Climb. If you don't have the money for Bridge Climb I highly recommend this. You have the option of watching a short film on the history of the bridge and once on the top you will have 360 degree views of Sydney Harbour in all its glory.

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!
