Sydney Harbour Bridge

Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge
It's the quintessential thing to do in Sydney, and it's alot of fun! You won't get a better bird's-eye-view of Sydney's amazing landmarks— including the Opera House and Luna Park— than from the top of the iconic Harbour Bridge.

Bridge Climb
A little touristy? Perhaps, but a heck of an experience, nonetheless, and views to die for.

I'm not sure you'll be able to climb a bridge like this anywhere else. It's expensive ($200-$300 per person) and you cannot take a camera (not even your iPhone up there—your climb leader will take a picture of you).

This is Sydney: Harbour Bridge
Walking down from the Observatory in Miller's Point, I can't stop snapping away at the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. It never gets old. I think the same can be said of the Eifel Tower in Paris, the Pyramids in Alexandria, all of Manhattan in New York, and the Grand Canyon in Arizona.

That's why we travel, right? We want to be in all those take-your-breath away places.

Sydney Bridge Walk
It's always sunny in... Sydney! Except for the day I decided to walk across the bridge. It rained and pour, but the metal work glistened and shined.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge at Dusk
I love visiting big iconic bridges during the sunset. Trips at dusk to the Golden Gate Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge have resulted in spectacular photographs of the urban landscape. The Sydney Harbour Bridge was another great experience!

The bridge is accessible by foot or by bike and is surrounded by some of the biggest attractions in Sydney. More adventurous types might opt for the Bridge Climb Tour (http://www.bridgeclimb.com/) where participants get to scale the summit of the 134-meter arch for panoramic views of the city. And yes, they offer a Twilight Tour near sunset (and a dawn tour at sunrise).

We were content walking across the bridge on the pedestrian walkway. It was a brisk spring evening in Sydney, and we didn't envy the tourists climbing the bridge overhead. The views from the bridge are stunning in every direction, and it is a magnificent vantage point to see the Sydney Opera House and the Central Business District.
