Spanning the city center to the North Shore, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is a wide steel arch bridge known for its beauty as well as function, providing a crossing for cars, trains, bikes and pedestrians. While the more daring can do the BridgeClimb to the top of the structure, opened to traffic in 1932, anyone can enjoy a walk for free.

It was a really cool climb and our leader Alejandro was super nice and knowledgeable. It was a spectacular way to see Sydney. Only problem, you can't take your own go pro, it's a way for them to sell you pictures in the end bc who wants to go on this experience and not get pictures.

We really thought we could do the bridge climb but realised after climbing the tower we may not have the fortitude. Amazing views from the tower, enough height for us. Lots of tourists again taking photos, but a well worth climb.

Everyone knows this is one of the most iconic bridges in the world and it does look impressive and makes a good photo backdrop. You can climb the bridge which you can book online, whilst this is a bit pricey, it worth paying for, we had a great time

The most amazing thing to do EVER. I was scared of heights and the guide was the best. It helped me overcome any fear. So witty and caring and helpful. The most magnificent views and feels so incredibly safe and secure. Well worth the money and I would recommend it to anybody.

Again seen so many images of the bridge seeing it up close left a bit under impressed and quite frankly the Humber Bridge back in the UK looks a lot more impressive

Extremely well organised and safe, actually much easier than expected. Fantastic views of vast harbour and CBD and different perspective. It is on a costly side but definitely worth doing, for locals as well as for visitors. Experience which will remain embedded into the memory. One does need luck to pick and book a day with good weather, as the... More

classic walk/views of Sydney from the "coat hanger" or "iron lung" given it was one of the few sources of work available during the Great Depression. South East pylon has great views of the city skyline and Opera House and I can recall the cat family that used to be resident in the pylon back in the 1960's.

This was on my bucket list and it didn't disappoint. Loved it. There isn't much of an incline and there are stops on the way up to take in the view if you are worried about fitness levels. There's a photo opportunity at the top with the opera house in the background. You are not allowed to take you own... More

I don't understand why this bridge is such a big attraction. Its just a bridge. I've seen many much larger and more interesting. I do agree that the option to climb the bridge (not for me) is pretty cool. The bridge is part of the absolutely beautiful harbor view.

If you have a head for heights and don't mind climbing lots of steps, then this is a brilliant way to see Sydney for miles around. a bit pricey, but well worth it. A word of warning, you are not allowed to take cameras, phones, watches etc. with you, but your guide takes plenty of photos plus a short video... More
