Harbour Bridge Pylon Lookout

You are here Home  > New South Wales  > Sydney >  Harbour Bridge Pylon Lookout

The climb up the stairs inside one of the bridge’s southern pylons is a cheaper alternative to the BridgeClimb although the experience isn’t quite the same. There are great views from the top and the museum inside the pylon has exhibits about the bridge’s construction.

    Great views of Sydney Harbour when you make it up to the top. If you don’t want to climb the stairs, just walk to the other side of the bridge for photos that are just as good.

    Highly recommend. Interesting to read how bridge was built, no mean feat in 1932, and enjoy views from the top.

    Tratar de ir cuando no esté demasiado soleado para q las fotos no salgan oscuras, llevar ropa cómoda para aprovechar de caminar p el parque botánico ;)

    It's a great view and an inexpensive option if the bridge climb is out of your budget

    Great view but hardly worth the entry fee.

    Cool views if you don't want to climb the bridge, and news factoids about the bridge. At the top you are eye level w/ climbers beginning their ascent.

    Worth doing the video first (in the room on the way out) then going and looking at the view

    Pylon Lookout is budget friendly view if you don't have enough money or guts to climb the bridge itself. :) Nice lookout!
