"SYDNEY HARBOUR BRIDGE" Harbour Bridge Tip by Adeline_Foo

Harbour Bridge, Sydney: 208 reviews and 336 photos


Sydney Habour Bridge or "The Coat-hanger" is along with the Opera House, the most famous symbol of this harbourside city. The bridge was completed in 1932 with 502.9m long and 48.8 wide and has 8 traffic lanes, 2 railway lines, and pedestrian and cycle paths. I have to climb the 200 steps to the Pylon Lookout for the fantastic views. There is another option to see the incredible 360 view of the beautiful harbour; that is to do the Bridge Climb. You can climb the world famous Sydney Harbour Bridge with a professional guide. He will take you all the way to the top over catwalks, ladders and arches. The climb took about 3 hours and you have to have a 30 minutes of training and put on special clothing. I did not do this climb because it cost about AUD100 dollars! It is way too expensive for me. The view from the Pylon Lookout is enough for me already
