“THE PYLON MUSEUM AND LOOK OUT IS A CHEAPER ALTERNATIVE”

Pylon Lookout at Sydney Harbour Bridge
Ranked #22 of 551 things to do in Sydney
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 13, 2013

We were a family of four and decided that the Sydney Harbour Bridge climb was probably too much physically for our youngest son and was an exepensive outing. We then found the alternative of the pylon museum. The little museum was very informative and also gave some magnificant views of Sydney Harbour and the Bridge. Afterwards, we walked along to the walkway along the bridge which was amazing and surprisingly short. A great morning of fantastic sights and Sydney history.

We chose to do the Pylon Lookout as it is a lot cheaper and takes half the time than if we did the Bridge Climb. We were lucky with very few others doing the 200 stairs and we were rewarded with a fabulous view of the harbour and the bridge. Two children (12&10) did it very easy, but make sure you wear lots of sunscreen and take advantage of the water along the stair climb. Very worth it!

$13 for a million dollar view! Great photo opportunity and beautiful 360* views of the whole city. The stairs weren't too strenuous - don't let them put you off!

This is an excellent way to get almost the same view as from the Harbour Bridge Climb but without the time involved or the cost.
We have taken many overseas visitors here with great reviews from the experience. It's also not as well known to overseas visitors as the Bridge Climb & doesn't require prior booking.

This is a great climb for people who do not like the idea of the full climb or for children who are too young to climb the bridge. Reasonably priced and an awesome view.
