Sydney Harbour Bridge

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is a postcard-perfect landmark, an engineering masterpiece and one of the most photographed attractions in all of Sydney. No visit to the city can pass by without a trip to this iconic landmark, noted as ‘Sydney’s Brooklyn Bridge’. One of the best ways to admire the giant structure is by taking a ferry out of Circular Keys!

Bridge History

The steel bridge, which transports cars, trains, bikes and pedestrians from one side of the harbour to the other, dates right back to 1932. As the worlds tallest arch bridge and the worlds largest steel bridge, it took a heck of a lot of resources to build including 52,800 tonnes of steel, 272,000 litres of paint and took 1,400 men eight years to complete construction.

Bridge Climb

While admiring the bridge from afar may be enough for some, others might have the desire to climb the bridge decked out in a harness and overalls. Lucky for you, that’s entirely possible thanks to the Sydney Bridge Climb tour which takes guests up and over the bridge on tours ranging from two to four hours. Climbs depart four times daily at twilight, daylight, sunset and night time. Once you’ve reached the summit, caught your breath and smiled for a photo it’s time to take in the panoramic views of the city!
