Sydney Harbour Bridge

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of Australia’s most famous landmarks. Built in 1932, this incredible feat of engineering uses almost 53,000 tonnes of steel to connect the Sydney CBD with the northern suburbs. Prior to its construction, Sydney residents hoping to cross the harbour would either have to board a ferry or undertake a 20 kilometre journey with five separate bridge crossings. Nowadays, pedestrians can walk from one side of Sydney Harbour to the other in just 15 minutes.

Although its design was inspired by New York’s Hell Gate Bridge, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is over 50% larger than its American counterpart. In fact, standing 134 metres above the waters of Sydney Harbour, it remains the tallest steel arch bridge in the world today. Those up for an adventure should consider taking on the BridgeClimb; this 1.5–3.5 hour experience will reveal stunning views of Sydney from the top the bridge.

For a different perspective, jump on a ferry from Circular Quay to westerly destinations such as Luna Park, Cockatoo Island, or McMahons Point. Gliding directly beneath the Sydney Harbour Bridge will give you an awe-inspiring sense of the magnitude—and the importance—of Sydney’s iconic bridge.
