What To Expect

Make your way to BridgeClimb Sydney for a comprehensive safety briefing before your selected climb. Pull on a specially-designed BridgeSuit to protect your clothing, slip on the provided harness and headsets and get securely clipped into a safety wire.

Once you’re ready, follow your guide along your chosen route. Climb with a small group, be entertained with informative commentary and anecdotes, stop at scenic points, and receive lots of encouragement along the way.

The standard Sydney BridgeClimb to the 440-foot summit is suitable for anyone with a moderate fitness level. Alternatively, choose the BridgeClimb Sampler if you’d prefer to ascend to the halfway point inside the inner arch. The BridgeClimb Summit Express proceeds at a faster pace with fewer stops using the interior arch to reach the Summit of the Bridge. The Vivid Climb is available during Vivid festival dates only.

Afterward, receive a commemorative certificate (not included on the BridgeClimb Sampler), BridgeClimb cap, a free pass to the Pylon Lookout, and a complimentary group photo to celebrate your accomplishment.
Morning or Afternoon BridgeClimb (3.5 Hours): This is the original Climb that takes the outer archways of the bridge all the way to the top. Climb up a steady incline and traverse catwalks and ladders, then admire panoramic views of Sydney Harbour and Sydney Opera House. Look out at the Blue Mountains, visible in the distance on a clear day. Choose from a morning or afternoon departure and see the city in full swing.  Dawn BridgeClimb (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 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 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 Sydney Harbour below while the stars and moon shimmer above. BridgeClimb Express (2.25 Hours): If you don’t have a lot of time or simply prefer a faster route to the summit, the BridgeClimb Express provides an incredible experience. 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. The VIVID Climb (3.5 Hours): Experience the magic of a bird’s-eye view of Sydney as it sparkles during VIVID Sydney 2018. Get spectacular views of the colorful light installations all around the harbor and as you climb the bridge. You'll also take part in the Sydney Harbour Bridge light show when you wear the provided VIVID Climb Vest. You will climb into the frame of a unique festival installation, high above the city, to capture a must-have image to commemorate your VIVID climb. The VIVID Climb will only be available during VIVID Sydney 2018 (May 25 to June 16, 2018). BridgeClimb Mandarin (2.25 hours): Take the 2.25-hour BridgeClimb Mandarin with an expert guide who speaks Mandarin fluently. Mandarin Karaoke Climb (2.25 hours): Help bring the year of the dog to life and celebrate Chinese New Year with your friends and family by singing your favourite karaoke songs on a stage like no other, on the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge! Choose from a selection of popular Chinese and K-pop songs to sing solo or in a group. Your performance will be yours to keep forever through a complimentary group photograph and an eight second video capturing your sky-high performance. The Karaoke Climb is available in Mandarin only and follows the standard BridgeClimb Express route to the summit. There are several departure times daily available during the Chinese New Year festival only, from February 9 and March 2, 2018.

A spectacular experience - perfect day for a climb
Timothy_P, Apr 2020
We are a couple in our late 60's from the UK We were very fortunate and picked the perfect day for our climb. It wasn't too hot, or windy, it didn't rain and we were lucky enough to see the sunset as well as Sydney by night making it a spectacular experience. All the staff were friendly and helpful, though it was a bit unfortunate that the battery went on the camera leaving us with around a 20 to 30 minute wait for a new one to be sourced. An added bonus was the FREE tickets for the PYLON! This gave us the chance to see Sydney in the daylight too! IMPORTANT TIP - register early (they don't seem to mind) if you are on a time limited visit or are going onto the bridge later in the day as this will give you a chance to use your Pylon tickets before the climb.
Great Experience!
Donna_S, Apr 2020
This was a great experience! The tour guides provided instructions and information about the bridge. Viator was a great way to book the tour because they have a 24 hour cancellation policy, which is not available when booking directly with the Bridge Climb. Also, when I arrived, I was able to move to an earlier available time slot to avoid the afternoon's projected rain.
Not to miss climb
Ronald_P, Apr 2020
Very well organised from start to finish with the guides doing a excellent job with a sense of humour throw in . The Climb is nice and steady and the views at the top fantastic. Well recommended
Just go ... you'll have an awesome time!
John_L, Mar 2020
Great experience and maybe the highlight of our vacation! We did the twilight climb and were able to see the sunset and night views. Other than the ladder sections, the climb is not too bad. The guides are FANTASTIC and really ensure everyone has a great time!

From Up high, Go for it
Eric_S, Mar 2020
This was one of the most enjoyable, exciting tours I have ever taken. I chose the 'advanced' climb. The Guide was very knowledgeable. I'm not comfortable with heights but wanted the challenge. The Guide made it easy and i'm very happy i did it. Highly recommend.
Great Day in the Bridge
Jeff_H, Mar 2020
Ben was a fantastic guide! The climb was relaxed and stress free. We had lots of time to look around at various points on the hike. The photos were great and we met some really cool people during the adventure. It was a bucket list item and we are so thankful that we went on this tour!!! Highly highly recommend this excursion!
Great Views
Andrew_W, Mar 2020
The bridge climb is a must when you are in Sydney. The tour group was extremely organized and safety conscious. I'm not the most comfortable with heights and I felt incredibly safe and secure during the tour. The tour included photographs and a video. The tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. My wife and I had a blast.
You must do once in a lifetime!
Sharyn_H, Mar 2020

Sampler Climb
Kaitlin_B, Mar 2020
We did the sampler climb and are so glad we did. We was half way up and over the bridge, took about 2 hours in total. Our tour guide was great, very friendly and helpful. Lots of stairs so be prepared!
Vantage views & Twinkling lights
Debbie, Mar 2020
The Bridge Climb was awesome. Lights around the city were starting to turn as we ascended, in full bloom while we descended. Suits are quite warm (I am a warmer person on a regular basis). So most who are cool - please layer. Was a wonderful experience.
Awesome Climb with Cati
Angelica-Estrada, Mar 2020
We decided to take the night climb. All the staff was great, especially Our climb leader Cati! She was friendly, knowledgeable in the bridge’s history and supportive during the climb. We were all able to comfortably enjoy both the active climb and the amazing views along the way because Cati took care to set a nice pace for us all. Great experience overall!
The Climb of a Lifetime
Donald_P, Mar 2020
A great adventure one to cross off your bucket list, the training session was very good making sure everyone in group understood the climb was taken at a steady pace being a small group the guide was able to give us all her full attention
Wonderful Experience
SuzieW, Mar 2020
Although this excursion is a bit pricey it’s worth every dollar spent. Very well coordinated and after the safety briefing you are climbing in no time. The views were amazing and there were plenty of photos taken by our leader. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Bridge Climb!
Usha_S, Mar 2020
They are so through on safety and preparation before the climb. And the guide during the climb was very through. We loved it. And highly recommend it!
Visiting Sydney ? A Must on your List
Linda_S, Mar 2020
I rarely do reviews, however this was an exceptional excursion. Our Bridge Guide was Pete, he was enthusiastic, informative and charismatic. As we begin our climb Sydney welcomed us with rain, wet but never cold, enjoyed an exceptional climb with breathtaking panoramic view of the harbor and the Sydney Opera House. My biggest challenge was finding a walkin hair stylist. A must for your Sydney outings.
Debra_G, Mar 2020
What a great experience. I'm not sure I would call it a "climb", more like a walk. There are 4 ladders to climb, but the rest is really just walking. You don't even really feel that you are so high, because most of the walkways have solid floors. Very safe.
Once in a lifetime experience
