Your BridgeClimb experience starts at the Sydney Harbour Bridge Visitors Centre where you meet your guide, receive a comprehensive safety briefing and put on the provided BridgeSuit, a specially designed coverall worn over your clothing.

When youre ready, follow your expert Climb Leader through a purpose-built tunnel that leads to the bridge. Securely clipped into a safety wire, start to climb the steady incline up the arches of the bridge, traversing catwalks and ladders all the way to the 440-foot (134-meter) summit. At the top, stop to admire panoramic views of Sydney and its surroundings. To the east you can see the sails of the Sydney Opera House and to the west the majestic Blue Mountains are visible in the distance (on a clear day).

Look out at the Blue Mountains, visible in the distance on a clear day. Choose from a morning or afternoon departure and see the city in full swing. 

Dawn BridgeClimb (3.5 Hours):

Twilight BridgeClimb (3.5 Hours):
Get the best of both day and night on this tour, which departs just before sundown. Take in a spectacular sunset and watch the moon and stars appear during your climb. Exact departure time depends on the timing of the sunset.

Night BridgeClimb (3.5 Hours):
Depart after the sun has set on this 3.5-hour tour to the summit. See the sparkling lights of the city and Sydney Harbour below while the stars and moon shimmer above.

BridgeClimb Express (2.25 Hours):
If you don’t have a lot of time or simply prefer a faster route to the summit, the BridgeClimb Express provides an incredible experience. Unlike the longer tour that walks along the outer arches, your route goes through the heart of the structure, which provides a different perspective. With this option, there are fewer steps to climb, fewer stops and the ascent to the top moves at a faster pace. Perfect for those with a higher level of fitness who are looking for an energetic experience within a shorter time frame.

BridgeClimb Sampler (1.5 Hours):
The Sampler is ideal if you have limited time, would like a more economical option or have concerns about heights and prefer not to go to the very top. The climb follows walkways on the inner parts of the bridge, which some people prefer to the exterior walkways used for other climbs. Reach a spectacular vantage point located on the inner arch of the bridge at the highest point of this climb, which is situated about halfway to the top of the bridge. With a maximum of 12 people, you're sure to have customized attention from your expert guide.

The VIVID Climb (3.5 Hours):

Experience the magic of a bird’s-eye view of Sydney as it sparkles during VIVID Sydney 2018. Get spectacular views of the colorful light installations all around the harbor and as you climb the bridge. You'll also take part in the Sydney Harbour Bridge light show when you wear the provided VIVID Climb Vest. You will climb into the frame of a unique festival installation, high above the city, to capture a must-have image to commemorate your VIVID climb. The VIVID Climb will only be available during VIVID Sydney 2018 (May 25 to June 16, 2018).

BridgeClimb Mandarin (2.25 hours):
Take the 2.25-hour BridgeClimb Mandarin with an expert guide who speaks Mandarin fluently.

Mandarin Karaoke Climb (2.25 hours):
Help bring the year of the dog to life and celebrate Chinese New Year with your friends and family by singing your favourite karaoke songs on a stage like no other, on the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge! Choose from a selection of popular Chinese and K-pop songs to sing solo or in a group. Your performance will be yours to keep forever through a complimentary group photograph and an eight second video capturing your sky-high performance.

  • Great!

  • An absolutely must when visiting Sunday. My boyfriend booked this tour and I was skeptical about it as I don't love heights. The experience itself is super safe. I didn't like the initial part of climbing up the vertical ladders, but after this, I highly enjoyed it. They give you a suit to wear with all the gear. They will take your photos at different points as you are not allowed to bring any recording devices with you. I highly recommend buying the photos. There are some bonuses on the flash drive with beautiful views of Sydney.

  • A must do if able! We went at twilight on Dec 21, the longest day of the year. Unfortunately it was overcast so we missed the sunset. After at least an hour of outfitting and learning to use the safety equipment we were ready to go. They tell you that there are four ladders to climb, but there not many photos to be found of said ladders. I heard all kinds of descriptions from those who had climbed, that they are slightly angled, that they are completely vertical.....actually there are four long steep, but not 100 vertical, ladders with good handrails and plenty of supervision. And you are harnessed in the entire time. I did them with good use of only one arm and Im 70. Took about ten minutes to get up all four, just take it slow and easy. After that it is an easy walk up and across and then down the ladders easier than up and walk back to the building. Beautiful scenery, several photo stops. They take the photos, no one is allowed to take any personal items except eyeglasses, so plan to purchase the photos. Not to be missed. This adventure is very expensive, but it helps to support maintenance of the bridge. The staff seemed very dedicated to providing a great experience for everyone.

  • Fun and educational. Learn how the bridge was built and the men that helped build it. The staff is great and they make sure you are safe the whole way. It’s at a slow pace with several stops along the way for pictures and to see the view. Highly recommend doing if in Sydney

  • If you feel adventurous and are not affraid of heights this is the experience for you. Although the climb sounds strenuous it is not. You climb for a while then stop to enjoy the view. The go some more the stop for a great pictures. If it is on your bucket list, go for it.

  • Wow such an amazing experience and tour! I can't believe I finally climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge! It was totally fun, safe, exciting, and something that will stay with you a lifetime if you decide to do it! Brooke our climb leader was very nice, knowledgeable, gave us breaks with history as we came our journey to the top. We were very lucky, it was only 4 in our group, not very windy, just a blast and I enjoyed every minute of it. Also, to me, it wasn't that scary at all! Unless your scared of heights then yeah it might not be for you, but the climb to the top is smooth and easy, more of a workout than scary. I totally enjoyed it a great deal!

  • Very unique experience with well qualified guides. This was our first experience using Viator bookings and the process was very good, including the location and prerequisites.

  • Simply put, awesome and highly recommend it. Our guide was friendly, informative, safe and funny. The history of the bridge and then be able to walk over and around it is breath-taking. Would recommend this to anyone and will def do it again next time in Sydney

  • Unique experience. Great view

  • Highly recommend! What a great intro to Sydney on the first day of our trip. BridgeClimb has a great process to make everything streamlined and efficient. The time they spend on safety and making everybody comfortable is great. The climb itself is amazing, what a cool job that would be to do it everyday! Will definitely go again!
