Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney

4.7
Must see · Bridge · Tourist Spot
With its long arch rising 134 m (440 ft) above the glimmering blue waters of Sydney Harbour, the Sydney Harbour Bridge stands as the world's tallest steel-arch bridge. Nicknamed "The Coathanger" by locals, the bridge itself forms an impressive site with a giant steel arch extending from one massive granite-faced pylon to another. It connects downtown Sydney to the North Shore for cars, trains, bicycles, and pedestrians. When you cross it, you'll be rewarded with outstanding views of the Sydney skyline and Sydney Opera House. You can walk across the bridge for free or take the Bridge Climb to the top of the arch if you're feeling adventurous. Work out when and for how long to visit Sydney Harbour Bridge and other Sydney attractions using our handy Sydney road trip tool.

  • It's a lovely place at daylight on mostly sunny and bright days. This is a highlight of any trip to Australia. Put it on the list of must-dos when there. Recommend to share an exciting time viewing the harbor. Above and beyond the horizon. You can either take a ferry to view this enormous structure or take a walk on it and see the beautiful harbour or take a climb up the bridge. Walking along the bridge is also lovely and free of charge. It's a beautiful little walk. You'll get to experience some beautiful views of the opera house and harbour. You can appreciate what the workers went through when you're up close to it. The Opera and the magnificent view from the harbour are a treat to watch.
  • You could either take a ferry to view this vast shape or take a stroll on it and spot the lovely harbor or take a climb up the bridge. Walking alongside the bridge is likewise cute and free of price. It's a beautiful little walk. The exceptional harbor within the international. You can take a ferry ride around inside the afternoon to peer the lovely light on the water and environment. Sydney's most visited attractions. And it is near opera residence.
  • A must see while in Sydney. There is so much you can do around the bridge. The bridge climb looks quite interesting, thought I did not try it myself. Walking along the bridge is also lovely and free of charge. Walking below the bridge is also nice and even better at night when the space is lit and pretty. Look into the history of the bridge itself, makes for a better understanding of the area.
  • One of the most iconic bridges of our time. Rented condo overlooking harbor and found myself drawn to this bridge while enjoying my coffee. At least once in your lifetime New Year's Eve must be celebrated here.
  • One of the most popular tourist attraction in Sydney. People from all around the consider this place as the trademark of Sydney. Every year it organizes the biggest fireworks in the world for the New Year's Eve. It's a lovely place at daylight at mostly sunny and bright days. People of all walk come here to visit.
