Sydney Harbour Bridge Facts, History, Height, Length, Images & Pylon Lookout

The bridge opened in 1932 and remained the tallest steel arch bridge in the world. The Sydney Harbour Bridge connects the city’s CBD with the North Shore, providing easy access for pedestrians, motorists and cyclists.

A great way to explore the bridge is to undertake a bridge climb. The climbs occur at dawn, during the day, twilight, and night. Those climbing the bridge will be equipped with outdoor clothing, and a safety officer will also brief you. The climb is suitable for people over eight and 1.2 metres tall. The climb is not physically exerting; climbers must sustain moderate exertion over 1.75km. There are many stairs to climb, so participants must be able to walk up and down stairs.

The duration of the climb, from the safety briefing to your descent, will take up to 3.5 hours, depending on the Climb type you choose. No loose objects are permitted on the climb; however, sunglasses are allowed as they will be affixed to your suit. There are lockers located on site so that you can leave your bags securely at the base. The Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb is an all-weather experience and will only be cancelled in dangerous weather conditions.

To get to the Sydney Harbour Bridge, climb by ferry, bus, or train to Circular Quay. From there, walk along George Street until you meet the corner of Argyle Street. Take Argyle Street, and when you reach the Argyle Stairs, take them to the top to reach Cumberland Street. From here, walk north along Cumberland Street. BridgeClimb is located on the street’s western side before the road snakes underneath the Bridge.
