General Information

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is a steel bridge that stretches over Sydney Harbour in Australia. The bridge which was completed in 1932, allows for the crossing of cars, trains and pedestrians from the central business district on one side to the North Shore area of the city on the other side.

The bridge was designed and built by a British company ‘Dorman Long and Co’ after being commissioned by the NSW Department of Public Works. It is the tallest steel arched bridge in the world, standing at 134 metres. The bridge is iconic due to it being featured heavily for the New Years firework displays.

Getting there

The bridge is situated at Sydney Harbour and is hard to miss. You can walk from most city centre locations to the harbour area and will be able to take in the city on your way. By bus, take the 400, 333 or M52. By train, take the train to Circular Quay which is a short walk.

Opening Times and Admission

The bridge is free to access on foot and you can walk across it in the pedestrianised area in both directions. By Car, a toll may exist on the southbound carriage. Trains also cross the bridge to and from the North Side into the city. A popular way of seeing the bridge is to climb it, the tours run daily depending on the weather and allow people to walk across the steel frame of the bridge; the climbs costs 168$ per person and can be booked online.

Give the walk a go

Rated:

I grew up locally and have seen the bridge monthly. I have also done the bridge walk multiple times and would recommend anyone visiting my city to do the same. Its a life experience and well worth the cost.

Do the walk

Rated:

Do the walk over the top of the bridge if you visit. Its very popular to do as its such an iconic sight in the city. I am not a person who enjoys heights but the guide was very reassuring and the staff ensure your safety. The bridge walk offers great views over the harbour.

Walked over the top

Rated:

Decided to take a walk over the top of the bridge, which was an experience i won't forget, you get stunning views of the harbour area from the top. The bridge is an impressive piece of architecture. The only downside i would say was the price of the bridge walk but it is a unique experience.
