What to Expect

Take this step-by-step joruney (1,002 to be exact) through the heart of the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge before bursting out to the glorious summit!

 

As you ascend the lower arch you’ll be surrounded by beams of steel and the hustle and bustle of the traffic below, enabling you to appreciate the beauty in the Bridge’s construction, and enjoy the breathtaking 360-degree views that surround you.

 

This climb allows you to get up close and personal with the Bridge and experience a unique inside perspective, while the breathtaking views you’ll experience along the way will live long in your memory, as will the stories from your expert climb leader!

 

The Journey


Latching on at the climb base below the Bradfield Highway, you will walk on catwalks directly over Sydney Harbour past the South-East Pylon, until you meet the base of the Bridge’s lower arch on the Opera House side.

 

Here you will commence your ascent as you rise to the peak of the lower arch. At this point, you will break through to the upper arch by taking a staircase to the summit. After a summit celebration with your group, you cross the spine of the Bridge to the Darling Harbour side to make your descent back down to the climb base.

 

About Sydney Harbour Bridge 
The Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of the most well known and photographed landmarks in Australia. It is the largest (but not the longest) steel arch bridge in the world, with the top of the bridge standing 134 metres above the Harbour. Locals call the bridge the 'Coathanger', because of its arch-based design.

If you’re 75 years of age, or over, you can climb with a Certificate of Fitness signed by your GP. Please, download this form from our website and bring it with you on the day.

In most cases, yes. We have helped thousands of people challenge their fear of heights by climbing to the top of the Bridge.

Acrophobia is a common fear. In fact many of this tour's 3.2 million Climbers came with nerves, not yet certain if they could muster the courage to set foot on the iconic steel arches.

We’re here to support you before during and after your BridgeClimb. We will answer questions, demonstrate just how safe BridgeClimb is, keep your mind engaged and your eyes on the prize.

We love and share in the pride in our Climbers who Face their Fear. Is your pulse racing at the thought? Don’t underestimate yourself. With support from The Supplier and from loved ones you’d be surprise what you can do!

Yes. We encourage climbers who wear hearing aids to leave them safely in their lockers to prevent damage or loss while they are on the Bridge. We have a variety of headsets available and many of our hearing impaired climbers have agreed that these allowed them to enjoy the commentary delivered by their Climb Leader.

 

We also offer Auslan Climbs. On an Auslan Climb you’ll be accompanied by an Australian Sign Language interpreter who will interpret the commentary about Sydney and its world famous Bridge. These Climbs occur twice a month.
