A great way to explore the bridge is to undertake a bridge climb. The climbs occur at dawn, during the day, at twilight and night. Those climbing the bridge will be equipped with outdoor clothing to wear, and a safety officer will also brief you. The climb is suitable for people over eight years of age and 1.2 metres tall. The climb is not physically exerting; however, climbers must be able to 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 safety briefing to your decent 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 all-weather experience and will only be cancelled in dangerous weather conditions.
To get to the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb catch a 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 these to the top to reach Cumberland Street. From here, walk north along Cumberland Street. BridgeClimb is located on the western side of the street before the road snakes underneath the Bridge.
