In a group of no more than 14 people, follow your professional Climb Leader on a steady incline up the bridge. Climb along the outer arch of the bridge on catwalks and ladders all the way to the 440-foot (134-meter) summit, where you’ll be rewarded with incredible 360-degree views of Sydney and its surroundings; look east to the Sydney Opera House and west to the majestic Blue Mountains. At the top, take a moment to reflect on your achievement – climbing to the top of one of Australia's most recognized icons, the Sydney Harbour Bridge!
Choose from four departure times throughout the day: enjoy a morning or afternoon climb; admire a stunning sunset during a twilight climb; or watch as Sydney’s city lights begin to sparkle on a night climb.
Your leaders will take photos throughout your journey. At the end of your climb, you’ll receive a complimentary commemorative certificate, cap and group photo!
