NOW BACK ON SALE FOR ARRIVALS UNTIL 31ST MARCH 2020!
Absorb a 360 degree panorama of Sydney as you journey to the summit on our original climb experience.
Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to climb the world famous Sydney Harbour Bridge!
Like an exposed spine, the outer rim delivers you to the peak, as the sky remains just beyond your outstretched fingertips.
This adventure begins with a comprehensive briefing and safety demonstration, after which you’ll be provided with a bridge-suit, communications equipment and a bridge harness that’s linked to a static line throughout your climb.
Your climbing group will be accompanied by a fully-trained Climb Leader who will guide you to the top of the bridge, – that’s 134m above sea level!
As you make your way along the outer arch of the Bridge, the steady incline to the summit gives you plenty of opportunity to take in your incredible surroundings. You’ll have 360° views of Sydney, with the Sydney Opera House to the east and the Blue Mountains and the Harbour city surrounds to the west.
There are several climb options to choose from, including a normal Day Climb, Dawn Climb, Night Climb and Twilight Climb. Climb times will be confirmed on a first time available basis, if you have a preference in time please contact our call centre at the time of booking to advise.
PLUS Every ticket to the top includes a Climb group photograph, a BridgeClimb cap, a certificate of achievement and a free pass to the Pylon Lookout.
3 ½ hours long, max. 14 people per group.
1 ,332 steps (that’s around 50 calories/2100 kilojoules for those tracking)
Ideal if you want to soak up the moment and take the upper arch.
Ideal if you’re a bit nervous and would like more support from our Climb Leaders.
You can do this Climb at dawn (limited departures), day, twilight or night.
