Why you should climb the Sydney Bridge

Who ever gets to sunny Sydney will most definitely not only appreciate the Opera House, but will also lovingly stare at the Sydney Bridge. Some will even climb it, like I did. And they will cherish that memory forever.

How it Works

Climbing the bridge is a well polished 1.5 to 3.5 hour operation, from the safety drills right through to the actual climb itself.

Yes, you will be obligated to leave your camera and any loose objects behind in lockers, but don’t worry, pictures will be taken and you’ll only be focusing on the view, without distractions. Win-win.

How it Looks

The climb itself is rather easy, during you get tons of information about the bridge and can ask questions. On top the bridge you will hear a victory song and pictures will be taken. Also you’ll get a moment to take in the impressive view of Sydney, the Opera House, the Parramatta River and the tiny cars and people driving underneath the bridge.

How it Feels

The climb is not scary at all and I promise you’ll feel very safe with all the equipment attached to your body. But it is thrilling in a way, cause it’s noting you do everyday (at least I don’t). So expect a few butterflies in your tummy as you go up. 

  • Make sure you wear sunscreen before you go up, Australian weather can be very tricky + bring your sunglasses too.
  • The outfit and the hat will be provided by the company, so don’t worry about that.
  • Book the climb in advance, it wil probably save you a lot of money.
  • If you can, book a sunset ot a sunrise climb, extra special view guaranteed.

Although the climb might be a bit expensive for some (the price goes up from 158 AUD), it’s definitely worth every penny. Cause let us be honest, when will you be doing this again? It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
