The BridgeClimb offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to climb the outer arch of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Although expensive and out of many backpackers’ budgets the BridgeClimb is established as Sydney’s top attraction. The BridgeClimb bills itself as an adventure activity although it’s not in the same league as skydiving or bungee jumping. The experience lasts for 3½ hours and gives you a fantastic view of the city and an appreciation of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Pricing varies depending on the time of day with most climbs costing $218–358, although some cheaper options are available. The best times (and most expensive) times are dawn and twilight and the cheapest time is around midday on weekdays (when you can sometimes do the climb for $148–158).

All climbers are fitted with a bridge suit and safety harness and given a safety briefing before heading out on to the bridge. Then small groups of around ten climb a series of ladders to the lower area of the top arch, from where they climb to the top of the bridge. There’s a photo session at the top, then you walk across a walkway to the other side where you descend back to street level. Bookings are essential and don’t go out on the town the night before as everyone is breathalysed before the climb.

    You have to do this. Safety is paramount with these guys, if you’re afraid of heights, do this.. you are going to feel very safe throughout the experience.

    Ein Erlebnis der besonderen Art. Sollte man sich nicht entgehen lassen. Der Ausblick ist einfach fantastisch. Ist etwas teuer, aber bei dem Aufwand angemessen.

    Climb to the top of one of Sydney's iconic landmarks and see the city and harbour surrounds from a different angle. Prices are a little less if you climb at night or on a weekday.

    Book your climb months ahead to secure slot. Pricey, but it is so worth it. Definitely a must-do when in Sydney!

    Even as a local Sydneysider the tour was unforgettable. 😍 Super professional, incredible views, and not too tiring. The price is exorbitant but we used China Travel Service CTS Tours which helped!!

    Worth the $$$. If you get Scott as your climb leader you're in great hands.

    The bridge climb at twilight was awesome, you get sunset and then the Opera house is lit up once the sunnhas gone down. The tour is so interesting and definitely worth the money

    Fun way to spend the afternoon, not as scary as people think

    You're brave and crazy. You hate heights and yet you're here climbing the tallest single arch bridge in the world with me. We kissed. I really am on top of the world.

    Thought I might be scared of heights. The worst part for me was the indoor simulator that they make you do before actually climbing. The climb itself, I enjoyed every second!

    Just FYI— the photos have a large logo added to them, which they will not remove due to the photos being "theirs" and "copyrighted" ... Unnecessary. $50 for a logo and an attitude. stupid

    Check this one off the bucket list! Amazing experience. When you are done, go to the Australian Heritage Hotel for kangaroo burgers.

    Choose a day when they have fireworks either at darling harbour or at rose bay! Good weather is icing on the cake

    A lot of fun although it seemed the evening climb was a lot slower then the day. Pre purchase your photos for better value.
