Climb Sydney Harbour Bridge with BridgeClimb

Sydney Harbour Bridge, or “The Coathanger” as the locals call it, is one of the most iconic bridges in Australia. Most tourists will simply drive over the bridge, or take photos from afar, but there’s a better way. Get up close and personal with this Sydney landmark on a BridgeClimb tour.

Standing 134 metres above Sydney Harbour, a BridgeClimb is not for the faint-hearted. But if you can summon the courage it’ll be worth it. There’s nothing like the satisfaction of conquering this massive arch while taking in the spectacular Sydney view. Many people have even used the tours to cure their fear of heights! And really, there’s no reason to be scared with safety harnesses and full safety briefings provided.

Choose from the standard Bridge Climb, the Discovery Climb, or the new Express Climb. Launch last October, this latest tour has more supervisors and less participants so you’ll get to the top quicker.

BridgeClimb Sydney offers day, night, and twilight climbs. Standard tours last about three and a half hours while the Express tour takes just two and a quarter hours.
