Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney

#Bridge, #Landmark, #Must See
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.

  • I LOVED this adventure up the Harbour Bridge. Very professional and knowledgeable staff. It was done very slowly so the walking effort and height were not an issue for anyone even on the hottest day! ...  more »

  • Amazing place to sit and relax from busy life. Lot of food joints, restaurant to eat favorite food, beer, wine. Several good bar and serving by beautiful hot girls. Great place to date and enjoy different kinds of Cocktails at the harbor. Be careful with birds who are expert to snatch food from your plate or hands :)
  • Beautiful cable stay bridge. This historic bridge is nicknamed the coat hanger bridge because of it's design. It's an iconic bridge just adjacent to the famous Sydney Opera House. You can either walk or drive across this bridge that connects downtown to northern Sydney. It's a popular tourist attraction and many people actually climb the bridge a service that's offered for a fee. It's a great place to get pictures and to view Sydney's harbour.
  • This Sydney landmark is spectacular. With Sydney harbour, the Opera House, and downtown as the backdrops, I can enjoy this beautiful scenery the whole afternoon. If you dare, you can pay to climb up to the top of the bridge where you can enjoy an even more stunning view. You can also take a leisure walk along the harbour side.
  • Spectacular Views are far reaching- I paid to climb up the bridge with the family. It’s a fair price for the experience. The kids that were part of our group loved it, you need to have a head for heights. But at the same time you feel quite safe
  • It was a wonderful experience walking on this bridge from one end to the other. The view was marvellous. We could see Opera and lots of beautiful buildings around the port area. The Steel bridge is really massive. We were running short of time, so we didn't go further up by the steel ladder.
