Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Reviews
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.
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.
This bridge is incredible! It's not until you walk underneath it along the harbour that you truly understand how enormous it is. They offer a hike up to the top where the views are breathtaking.... If you're not fearful of heights then this is a must. Harbour Bridge climb tours generally start at $250 (depending what your climb includes). Definately a must if you're interested in landmarks and beautiful scenery. You can also walk across the bridge on the flat which generally takes one hour to do.
Wonderful views of downtown Sydney. If you don't want to spend around $200 to climb the bridge but still want an elevated view of the city I recommend visiting the Pylon. It will only set you back $15 and there is also a small museum at the end that features a video about the making of the bridge.
Cool place to see and photograph. Lots and lots of tourist, place was packed when we were there. Plenty spots to have a beer and admire. Had a look at possibly doing the climb, the cost is far to high to be worth doing. The pilon climb was much more appropriately priced and kept us busy for a couple hours, worth seeing. Very interesting history. It's a lot bigger in person.
