Sydney Harbour Bridge

Along with the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is a vital part of the city's downtown skyline. Rising 442 feet above the waters of Sydney Harbour, the arched, steel-riddled structure has eight lanes of traffic, plus a pedestrian and bike lane, connecting Sydney's North Shore with the bustling Central Business District.

From afar, the bridge is best seen as part of a harbor cruise, from which travelers can stare straight up and truly appreciate its grandiose size. Rather than craning your neck up, however, consider tackling the Sydney BridgeClimb to get a view from the top. Visitors can cross the bridge on walking and biking tours, or see it from the sky on a helicopter ride. For a real treat while visiting Sydney and strolling around downtown, stay until daylight fades away to see the bridge illuminated at night.

Insider's Tip: The bridge plays a starring role in Sydney's New Year's Eve fireworks display.

Practical Info

If you plan on climbing Sydney Harbour Bridge, expect to spend between 1.5 to 3.5 hours, depending on the length of the climb.

Did You Know? It took 1,400 people and over eight years to build the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
