What You Can Expect
When you’re ready, follow your expert Climb Leader through a purpose-built tunnel that leads to the bridge. Securely clipped into a safety wire, start to climb the steady incline up the arches of the bridge, traversing catwalks and ladders all the way to the 440-foot (134-meter) summit. At the top, stop to admire panoramic views of Sydney and its surroundings. To the east you can see the sails of the Sydney Opera House and to the west the majestic Blue Mountains are visible in the distance (on a clear day).
Throughout your tour, you can hear your guide via provided headsets. Listen to informative commentary and fun stories about the history of Sydney and the bridge and receive plenty of encouragement during your climb. Your guide stops at scenic points along the way so that you can take in the sights.
The 3.5-hour BridgeClimb is suitable for people with a moderate level of fitness. The 2.5-hour Express Climb proceeds at a faster pace with fewer stops. The 1.5-hour Sampler Climb goes to a halfway point inside the inner arch before returning to the ground.
After all tours, receive a complimentary group photo, commemorative certificate and BridgeClimb cap. Please see more details about each tour under Itinerary below.
This is the original climb that takes the outer archways to the summit. Choose from a morning or afternoon departure and see the city in full swing.
The Dawn Climb (3.5 hours):
Take in the breathtaking views of the sun rising over Sydney on a dawn BridgeClimb. Join the first group to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge for the day, departing in the early morning before sunrise. Exact departure time is determined by timing of the sunrise. Receive two additional complimentary photos on this tour.
Twilight Sydney BridgeClimb (3.5 hours):
Get the best of both day and night on this tour, which departs just before sundown. Take in a spectacular sunset and watch the moon and stars appear during your climb. Exact departure time depends on the timing of the sunset.
Night Sydney BridgeClimb (3.5 hours):
Depart after the sun has set on this 3.5-hour tour to the summit. See the sparkling lights of the city and harbour below while the stars and moon shimmer above.
Express Climb (2.25 hours):
If you don’t have a lot of time or simply prefer a faster route to the summit, the Express Climb provides an incredible experience in a group of no more than 12 people. Unlike the longer tour that walks along the outer arches, your route goes through the heart of the structure, which provides a different perspective. With this option, there are fewer steps to climb, fewer stops and the ascent to the top moves at a faster pace. Perfect for those with a higher level of fitness who are looking for an energetic experience within a shorter time frame.
BridgeClimb Sampler (1.5 hours):
The Sampler is ideal if you have limited time, would like a more economical option or have concerns about heights and prefer not to go to the very top. The climb follows walkways on the inner parts of the bridge, which some people prefer to the exterior walkways used for other climbs. Reach a spectacular vantage point located on the inner arch of the bridge at the highest point of this climb, which is situated about halfway to the top of the bridge. With a maximum of 12 people, you're sure to have customized attention from your expert guide.
Mandarin Climb (3.5 hours):
Take the 3.5-hour BridgeClimb with an expert guide who speaks Mandarin fluently.
We really enjoyed the Sydney Bridgeclimb. It is a must tour which I will be prompting to my family and friends. Well organized with friendly and helpful staff before during and afterwards. We had a little hiccup with not receiving our video but after a phone call, the bridgclimb people were strat onto it and we received less then 24 hours thank you.
An absolute must for your "bucket list". The experience was great and the views amazing.
