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.

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 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. The Karaoke Climb is available in Mandarin only and follows the standard BridgeClimb Express route to the summit. There are several departure times daily available during the Chinese New Year festival only, from February 9 and March 2, 2018.

This is a fairly straightforward climb. You are connected to the bridge constantly and even so would be very unlikely to fall. There are some ladders that climb. The most vertiginous point is when you cross over to the other side to then come down. There are lots of pauses, mainly to take lots of photos. You get the group one free but would pay for others. Be warned, all participants are breathalysed so be sure you are below the drink drive level for Australia.

It takes 3.5 hours, but won't feel as long. First 1 hour was spent on preparation, briefing, wearing equipments, and practice. The climb itself took about 1.5 to 2 hours, depending on how much time is spent during photo sessions. Think of this as climbing to the top of the bridge for photo sessions, and our guide (and the rest of 13 persons group) was very patient to allow each sub-groups did their poses. After reaching the top and took our group picture, the "climb" down was about 40 minutes. The guide/photographer (Mr. Abs, that was his name) was very energetic, funny, knowledgeable and made the journey a pleasure. Safety was excellent. Loose objects, such as your phone would not be allowed. So forget about selfies. But the photos our guide took of our sub-group of my daughter and me (we took the optional 10 pic package, in soft copies) were more than good enough. If you do not want the optional photo packs, you will receive the complimentary group photo of your entire climb group. Make sure you had breakfast or lunch beforehand. Drinking fountains are present on several spots along the climb. Don't worry about climb intensity. This is not a climb, more like a stroll, although you would need to climb a few very safe ladders. If you are able to walk normally 1 km without rest stops, you would not have a problem doing this. Total steps is about 1450 for the entire "climb". Overall a must do, although quite expensive (total 580 AUD incl. the optional 10 pics).

This tour is a must do while in Sydney. What an unbelievable experience. Checking in was breeze and the staff throughout the entire facility was very pleasant. They first check you in, have you fill out paperwork, they also do a breathalyzer test. Make sure not to over drink that day because you cannot climb if intoxicated, for safety reasons (for those that have the jitters). You then change into your jumpers, get into your harness, do a practice run on ladders, put headphones/radios on, they also give you jackets and wind breakers, and it starts. The bottom/beginning of the tour is a little intimidating but once you get the arch itself, it remarkably it gets a lot easier. It seems very intimidating from affair but its completely stunning. We went in September so it was breezy and a bit chilly at the time we went (3pm'ish). You cannot take any looks jewelry on you, watches, cameras, etc. However, you can take glasses and they tie them up for you so that they do not fall. They offer to take pictures in different areas of the bridge and a short video, with an option to buy at the end. They offer a USB to purchase for $60 with 10 images on it. Well worth it! The tour I took which was the full climb to the summit did include a free group photo at the end. Our tour guide was Holly and he was GREAT and you can tell he loves what he does.

Last minute booking on the day of the climb, ended with a night climb time slot. Worked out perfectly since we got some spectacular views of the city; and not as scary since everything was dark so can't tell how high we actually were! Our guide was very patient and knowledgeable, provided good history and background of the bridge. Definitely a must do when in Sydney!
