No trip to Sydney is complete without a visit to the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The Harbour Bridge is an icon not only for Sydney but for Australia across the world. It Links the city with North Sydney, carries eight lanes of road traffic and two railway tracks. It is the world’s tallest steel arch bridge, measuring 134 metres (440 ft) from top to water level.

You can not only see this icon but also climb up to the summit and be thrilled with the spectacular views of the city.

Sydney Bridge Climb is an Ultimate and Breathtaking taking experience. Once you reach to the summit, you get 360 degree views of Sydney in its entirety including Sydney Opera House, city surrounds and even the Blue Mountains on a blue sky day.

The Harbour Bridge Climb takes around 3.5 hrs in total including the safety briefing and perfect for those who love adventure and heights. To join the experience you have to be above 10 yrs of age and a reasonable level of fitness. I would not recommend this if you are pregnant, afraid of heights, have respiratory problems or you struggle to walk without a stick.

Your Harbour Bridge climbing experience will includes high ladders and catwalks, Prolonged stair climbing, Uneven surfaces and narrow passageways and Exposure to all weather conditions (climb operates in all Sydney weather conditions, except electrical storms and extremely high wind).But it’s not difficult at all – Its fun! You will be led by Professional Bridge climbers in small groups.

There are 3 types of Climb available – The Discovery Climb, The Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb and The Express Climb.

The Discovery climb and Harbour bridge climb are almost the same as far as the duration and start times are concerned. The only difference between the two is that the former climb takes you along the inner arch of the Bridge and the latter takes you through the outer arch. The Express Climb is the newest and the fastest way to climb the Sydney harbour bridge.  It is introduced for those with a shortage of time as it gets completed in 2 hrs and 15 mins as compared to the other 2 climbs which takes 3 hrs and 30 mins.

Safety is number-one priority here and they take it very seriously. You will be provided with either a latch or slider attached to a static line on the Bridge, for the duration of the Climb, ensuring you feel safe, secure and comfortable at all times. You get a special suit to wear, headsets (so that you don’t miss the commentary from the climb leader) and more..Only other thing you should keep in mind is that you can’t take your camera or anything else up there with you. Make sure that wear rubber-soled shoes such as running, sport or hiking shoes, which offer comfort, support and grip.

The main thing you should consider is the timing of your climb. There are generally 4 time slots – Day, Twilight, Dawn and Night. Dawn and twilight are expensive but most popular and most stunning. Make sure that you book well in advance to avoid disappointment for your climb otherwise you will not get the time of your choice.

Day Climb can be very hot if you intend to be here in the peak of summer but can very nice if you are planning in winters. The night one is good too as you get to see the city lights but it’s perhaps not quite as impressive as the other times.

If you are couple take your partner up on the summit during Twilight and believe me that will be the most romantic experience you’ve ever had with breathtaking views all around you!

So, it’s not the most inexpensive thing to do in Sydney but it is one of the best and worth the money that you spend. The climb experience starts from AUD 188 per person. At the end of the Climb, you will receive a Climber Certificate and a complimentary group photograph.

So what are you waiting for? Start planning for this Ultimate and once in a Lifetime Experience – Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb.
