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.

Impressive to drive over, or just see from the Rocks, it looks its best when seen from the water on one of the ferries. The sheer size of the span is almost overwhelming.

It's not hard and you are trained how to climb the steps the cost depends which climb you can do an express. It you don't go all the way to the top. 288 for the full climb
Are you able to bring water with you on the bridge climb or is it provided?
