BridgeClimb will take your breath away! The Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of the most fascinating engineering structures in the world, and one of the most recognised icons of the greatest harbour in the world. On your exhilarating BridgeClimb adventure, you will make your way over 1500 metres of steel as you venture across catwalks, steep ladders and arches on your way to the summit. You'll stop there to rest and take in the most spectacular 360 degree view of Sydney harbour and city. You will never forget Sydney tour or this amazing moment!
BridgeClimb is a suitable challenge for virtually anyone who is older than 10 years, is medically fit and has a sense of personal adventure. You'll find the climb is set at a leisurely pace and that stringent safety standards are followed. You have the choice of 3 different climbs at 4 different times of the day.
Listed below are the various times that you can choose from.
Dawn Climb: The dawn climb offers a tranquil outlook and suits the early adventurer. As the city lights fade into a glorious sunrise you can experience the peaceful dawn transition from a sleepy city to one that gradually becomes awake and alive.
Day Climb: You get a real overall sense of Sydney from the harbour and Opera House, across to the coastline and right out to the Blue Mountains. Climbing in the day has a vibrant, bustling, energetic feel. In every direction you look, an awesome view of the world's most beautiful harbour, awaits. Nothing else in Sydney gives you this breathtaking perspective.
Twilight Climb: At twilight you get the best of both worlds with the transition from day to night happening as you move through the Climb. It's amazing seeing all the colours across the sky and city changing as the day closes down and the night sets in. Coming down the bridge as the city lights start to come on you sense the night world coming alive.
Night Climb: Those that have Climbed at night describe the Climb as a totally different kind of experience - something like a "magical adventure as you hike up towards the heavens". The night has a really intimate feel. You're enclosed in a blanket of darkness with just the bridge lights illuminating the structure in huge shadows. Once you get to the top it's amazing, you can see the lights across the Sydney metropolitan area.
Listed below are the climb options available. These climbs are available at all four times (as mentioned above).
The Express Climb: For those with limited time in Sydney the Express Climb is an excellent option. The climb takes only 2 hours and 30 minutes. In a small group you will discover the wonders of the Bridge up close before reaching the summit to take in the glorious views of Sydney.
