Sydney Harbour BridgeThe world-famous Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of the most memorable landmarks in Sydney and is known locally as 'The Old Coathanger'. The bridge was finished in 1932, and now this structure is one of the modern wonders of the world, but before the Sydney Harbour Bridge was built the only way to cross Sydney Harbour was by ferry or to take a road journey around the harbour, which was approximately 12 miles / 20 km.

Sydney Harbour BridgeThere are several ways to journey over the Sydney Harbour Bridge which includes eight lanes for traffic, two railway tracks, a cycling path and a pedestrian walkway. The Sydney Harbour Bridge is situated close to the Sydney Opera House, and it spans over 1,650 feet / 503 metres long.

The Pylon Lookout is an additional adventure for everyone that visits Sydney Harbour Bridge. There is a 200-step walk to the lookout, where visitors can enjoy some of the most breathtaking views of the city of Sydney. Inside the Pylon Lookout on Sydney Harbour Bridge there is a museum with displays showing the construction of the bridge, including many photographs.

Sydney Harbour BridgeAnother feature of the magnificent Sydney Harbour Bridge is the BridgeClimb. Visitors can enjoy this entertaining tour which takes approximately three hours to complete and everyone wishing to do this climb must have a head for heights. Visitors are attached to a safety rail by a harness and then taken by guide to the top, which is 439 feet / 134 metres above the busy harbour waters. Although the top of the BridgeClimb can be windy, everyone is photographed and will enjoy the memorable and beautiful view across Sydney harbour and the city of Sydney.

Open: daily - 10:00 to 17:00
