  • What You Can Expect

    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 you’re 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).

    Throughout your tour, you can hear your guide via provided headsets. Listen to informative commentary and fun stories about the history of Sydney and the bridge and receive plenty of encouragement during your climb. Your guide stops at scenic points along the way so that you can take in the sights.

    The 3.5-hour BridgeClimb is suitable for people with a moderate level of fitness. The 2.5-hour Express Climb proceeds at a faster pace with fewer stops. The 1.5-hour Sampler Climb goes to a halfway point inside the inner arch before returning to the ground. Select a VIVID Climb available during festival dates only.
    After all tours, receive a complimentary group photo, commemorative certificate and BridgeClimb cap. Please see more details about each tour under Itinerary below.

    Itinerary

    Morning or Afternoon BridgeClimb (3.5 Hours):
    This is the original Climb that takes the outer archways of the bridge all the way to the top. Climb up a steady incline and traverse catwalks and ladders, then admire panoramic views of Sydney Harbour and Sydney Opera House. 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):
    Take in the breathtaking views of the sun rising over Sydney on a dawn BridgeClimb. Join the first group to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge for the day, departing in the early morning before sunrise. Exact departure time is determined by timing of the sunrise. Receive two additional complimentary photos on this tour.

    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 2017. 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 201 (Late May – Early June 18).

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

    Cancellation Policy

    Package is cancellable prior to three days from the commencement of the service.

The tourguide girl could have had better photography skills, otherwise, worth it!

We decided to do the Bridge Climb to celebrate our 60th birthday while we visited Sydney. We thoroughly enjoyed the climb and our guide Lexi was the best! She made the climb interesting, fun and imparted a lot of great information of the bridge history! She would be great for the media team because she has the personality and genuine warmth needed to make folks feel at ease. Thank you for a great experience Lexi!

Despite atrocious weather - wind and rain - an experience not to be missed! This trip is not cheap but it is worth every penny as a 'once in a lifetime experience'. Super tour guide - in fact all the staff at the Sydney Bridge Climb were so good.
