Climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge is exhilarating – and an unforgettable experience, too. The panorama from the top of the largest steel arch bridge in the world is stunning. A BridgeClimb Sydney tour to the summit is open to anyone who is in good health and aged eight and older.
Your climb leader is there to make sure your experience is safe and fun, and will provide intriguing facts about the bridge along the way. And after the climb you’ll receive a photo of yourself on the bridge, so you can cherish the memory and share your adventure with family and friends back home.
The minimum height requirement is 1.2 metres. BridgeClimb is on Cumberland Street in the historic Rocks, a stroll from either Circular Quay or Wynyard train stations. Climbs begin at regular intervals, from early in the morning through to the evening, and all the equipment you’ll need is provided.
A range of climbs is available. The main BridgeClimb is 3h 30min return along ladders and catwalks and the outer arch of the bridge to the top, which is 134 metres above the sparkling blue waters of Sydney Harbour. A quicker tour to the summit is BridgeClimb Express, which is 2h 15min return.
Other climbing options include the BridgeClimb Sampler through the inner arch to a superb vantage point halfway up. This walk is only 90 minutes return. If you’re looking for a wedding venue, then a BridgeClimb Wedding at the top of the arch is a memorable spot to tie the knot or renew your vows.
You’ll have plenty of time at the top to enjoy breathtaking views of Australia’s most beautiful city and beyond, including the iconic Sydney Opera House, the gorgeous harbour surrounds, and the spectacular Blue Mountains. The national parks in and around Sydney create a lovely green network.
